Auto High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a function used only for still images. This function captures three images of different exposure values, and then merges them inside the camera system. As a result, it expands the dynamic range of the photo, almost to the level seen by human eyes from shadow to highlight.


  • When you press the shutter release button once, three images of different exposure value are captured continuously.
  • You can set the exposure level difference between 1.0EV and 6.0EV in addition to Auto mode.
  • It takes approximately four seconds for processing.
  • It detects and corrects any misalignment between images.
  • When camera shake or subject blur occurs, you may not obtain good HDR images. In such cases, HDR! is displayed on the recorded image. Take the shot again if necessary.
