Thoughts –

The HDR mode on the Canon T4i works but I am frustrated by the limitations when in HDR mode, you have very little control over the camera when in HDR mode – no changing the focus points, no exposure controls, everything is fully automatic.  The only thing you can select is single frame, continuous or self-timer.   You also need to watch out for ghosting if there is movement in the images.  Ghosting happens when there is enough movement – either you or your subject that causes the camera issues when it tries to line up the three shots.  Using IS on your lens or a tripod can help here.


I am happy to answer any questions about this mode or any of the others on the Canon T4i.  I will be producing another video soon that shows you how you can create your own HDR, without using Canon’s mode.

    • HDR Mode does not work in manual. It is on the mode dial and everything is auto when in HDR mode. You could shoot in manual and setup a 3 shot exposure bracket to later combine in your computer but you cannot combine those three shots in camera.
