Digital source identification is one of the most important problems in the field of multimedia forensics. While Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) images are commonly analyzed, High Dynamic Range (HDR) images are a less common research subject, which leaves space for further analysis. In this paper, we present a novel database of HDR and SDR images captured in different conditions, including various capturing motions, scenes and devices. As a possible application of this dataset, the performance of the well-known reference pattern noise-based source identification algorithm was tested on both kinds of images. Results have shown difficulties in source identification conducted on HDR images, due to their complexity and wider dynamic range. It is concluded that capturing conditions and devices themselves can have an impact on source identification, thus leaving space for more research in this field. View Full-Text
