What Point and Shoot with Auto HRR

2 years 2 months ago #614328 by Ripple
Hi,

I'm looking for a point and shoot that can be placed in a mode in which it takes three exposures in a row (preferably one espouse that is "correct," one exposure plus two stops, and one exposure minus two stops) and combine them into a single JPEG (all in camera). Ideally, I could set different ways of blending the three exposures in camera too (though this may be asking too much).

I am surprised a google search does not come up with a camera that does this.

If such a point and shoot exists, please let me know about it.

(BTW, I figure there are some point and shoots that allow me to get three separate exposures manually, and then combine them in post. This is not what I am asking about. I plan to give the camera to a friend who has a good eye but knows nothing about how to even get a decent single exposure).

Thanks in advance.

That's generally a feature of bigger, better cameras.

That said, I found reference to
  • Olympus XZ-2
  • Panasonic Lumix ZS20
You can also use DSLRs in auto mode. Most entry-level models have scenes/presets, and the benefit of a larger sensor. The Nikon bodies will use JPG mode to capture an HDR image, which means that the user need not worry about shooting RAW.

I also just located a reference to in-camera HDR on the Nikon P900. I don't know if the (newer) P1000 has it, but you can check.

Hi garyhook,

[font=Calibri, sans-serif]Many thanks for your help here. Of these, it looks like Panasonic Lumix ZS20 does a pretty decent job. DPReview’s sample [/font] (here) [font=Calibri, sans-serif] of in camera HDR looks natural enough, although it does say, “…[/font][font=Helvetica, sans-serif]since this is a scene mode, most camera settings are locked up.” (Well, what did I expect?) The focal range of 24–480 mm (equivalent) covers at least three good lenses on a DSLR. I’d be OK with 24-200 mm, but the extra reach is welcome…[/font]
  Looks like the Olympus XZ-2 does not take multiple exposures, but rather underexposes, push processes, and does heavy noise reduction.   That Nikon P900 seems quite nice, if a little big for the pocket of my man bag (purse). Not sure about that super zoom, as it makes it bigger and not sure it’s necessary… Yes I confess, after I posted, I started thinking I might  like one of these for me too, not just my friend…   I hope the others here will continue posting ideas for point and shoots with HDR.

It seems like the HDR of the [font=Helvetica, sans-serif]Sony [/font]
[font=Calibri, sans-serif]HX400Vs is well thought of. How about on their more compact point and shoots? [/font] 
Thanks again..

Not sure about that super zoom, as it makes it bigger and not sure it’s necessary… So would not fit so neatly into the pocket of my man bag (purse)….
