Camerge is an algorithm that uses modern CCD/CMOS cameras to their full potential, both cheap camera-phones and high-end professional cameras, adding significant value. One of the most difficult issues with photography, particularly for the amateur, is the combination of lighting, aperture, and exposure time. Camerge solves this problem computationally, and can be applied automatically within cameras. Computational cost is orders of magnitude lower than that of competing 'High Dynamic Range' algorithms, and results are based on a human eye model, dramatically improving perceived image quality. The algorithm can also be applied to CCTV cameras, significantly aiding security staff.
