Sample images using the built in HDR function on the Nikon D5200 – Options are HDR OFF, Auto HDR,  Extra High, High, Norm, and Low.  In my testing there was often very little difference between auto, normal and low.    Notice the serious Halos around your higher contrast areas when HDR was set to Extra High.  Compare the options and results to the HDR feature built into the Canon T4i and it is clear that Nikon offers some real potential here but it still is not going to beat bracketing three shots on your own and combining in Photomatix or Photoshop.

HDR OFF – Mouse over for HDR Extra High

HDR OFF – Mouse over for HDR Auto


Viewing tip – Open up the photos and use the arrow keys to navigate through – once you have been through all of the photos once you can use the arrow keys to easily pop back and forth to compare the HDR on and off.

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.

  1. I was using Photomatix in LR 3. But since upgrading to LR4 I haven’t used it. I try using HDR sparingly. It is becoming overkill in many photos. Today’s cameras have such good dynamic range at most times you don’t need HDR…
