Camera Functions

HDR (High Dynamic Range)

Each time you take a photo, the camera takes two shots at different exposures and combines them to preserve details in shadows and highlights in high-contrast scenes.

HDR: On
HDR: Off

HDR is most effective when used with matrix metering.

Procedure

02. Highlight HDR mode and press the multi selector right.
03. Press the multi selector up or down to highlight an option and press OK.
04. Select On (series) or On (single photo) to enable HDR. HDR appears in the viewfinder.
05. Highlight Exposure differential and press the multi selector right.
06. Press the multi selector up or down to highlight an option and press OK.

08. Press the multi selector up or down to choose how much the boundaries between the two images are smoothed (the amount of smoothing) and press OK.

The camera takes two exposures when the shutter-release button is pressed all the way down.

Job Hdr will be displayed in the control panel and Job HDR in the viewfinder while the images are combined; no photographs can be taken until recording is complete.

if On (single photo) is selected, HDR turns off automatically after the photograph is taken. The HDR icon clears from the display when HDR shooting ends.
