What is Auto High Dynamic Range Function?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    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.
