    5D3 in-camera HDR

    I decided to do something with a tiny bit of thought for my first few photos with the 5D3. This is an example of the in-camera HDR feature and I was curious as to see how it worked. As Dylan (dtoh) has shown in another thread, it's not something to be used all the time but I can certainly see some advantages in creative areas. Sure does have the potential to save a lot of work in pp. One downside (for what it's worth to some) is that it actually takes an extra shutter actuation to create the final in-camera image. I guess that can be weighed up against time in pp.

    Not an image I would call a keeper but was fun and I satisfied a piece of my curiosity.

    Shot hand held

    Settings were:-
    No. Exposures: 3 frames
    Dynamic Range: +/-3 EV
    Effect: Art Vivid
    ISO: 100
    Picture Style: Landscape
    White Balance: Cloudy
    Image Quality: S2

    Only post work was quick level adjustment & auto correct in Microsoft Picture Manager. Nothing flash. Just wanted to see how the HDR thingy worked.

    Interesting. It does have the HDR look to it, so I guess it has done it's job. Some may say it is too unnatural, and that because you can see it is HDR, then it is overdone. I like the photo that you took though!

    nice image.
    this has the same issue i have with the k7 in camera hdr and that is the halo around the edges where sky meets trees.
    like you say, it has its place, but not to be used too often
    cheers
    cc and enjoy

    Yep, first thing I noticed and first thing I don't like about some of these kind of HDRs. Luckily, there is a natural setting also. Assuming the same for the Pentax?
