HDR- which cameras do five autobracketed shots

Hello,

HDR is extremely popular and it seems most cameras produce three photos in the set: one negative EV shot, neutral EV shot, one positive EV shot. This gives excellent results.

Does anyone know which cameras allow for five autobracketed shots in the set? I would think that five shots (two -ve, two +ve, one neutral, e.g. -2,-1,0,+1,+2) would be useful when there is a larger range of brightness.


cheers,
DJDD

DJDD,

The Nikon's give you 5 bracketed shots, and, I think, up to 7.

The Canon's give you 3. It's no biggie. Set to -2 EV, 0 EV, +2 EV, and then do -1 EV, 0 EV and +1 EV.

Turf the extra 0 EV, and you're good to go.

Regards,
Humayun

hey, thanks for the reply.
Which Nikons? probably the newer D90 or D300? certainly not our D80.

as for doing: -2 EV, 0 EV, +2 EV, and then do -1 EV, 0 EV and +1 EV.
great idea. did not even think of that.

Pentax K10d (10mp) or the K20d (15mp) will do the job. Not sure about there other models but knowing pentax they should.

My D300 Nikon does 7 bracketed shots. I use 5 a lot when shooting stationary targets.

Cheers

The Nikon D200 will do 5... The D2Xs will do 7. The D300/700 D3/D3X will both do 7 also..

Humayun's idea is what I used to do with my 350D..
