"Sandwich Pictures"


Bellingham, US
          

Hello,
I will be getting my D7100 on Friday. I read somewhere that you can bracket photos for exposure and in the camera somehow sandwich them together into one pic with great range of color and exposure. My understanding is that the camera does this all.
Is this true?
Thanks.
Bill

you might be confusing two different functions that do the same thing. if you do not shoot raw you can do in camera HDR, the cam will do the HDR work for you. i have found the results lacking. the 7100 also lets you bracket 3 or 5 frames, each with different exposures, so you can use software to create HDR images I use photomatix for that.

Bill,

I use multiple exposures as Mark suggests, but process them in Nik Software's HDR Pro Efex 2 software. Try them both - I think trials are available.

If you shoot in jpeg mode, you can do 2-frame HDR in camera. It actually works pretty well in certain high contrast scenes, but not always well in AUTO mode. If you shoot brackets, there are many ways to merge them into an HDR image including in Photoshop elements.

I also shoot Multiple exposures (sometimes 3 sometimes 5) And then combine them in Nik Hdr 2 for a photo realistic or Photomatix for something a bit more artistic. But to answer your question, the D7100 does in camera HDR.

I have been playing around with the photomatix and the results look good. I can hardly wait to try some more. What an excuse to use my good tripod instead of my backpacking one. Thank you for all your help.

I know this is probably the wrong place to ask but does Photoshop CS4 have such a function?
Thanks,
Bill

I am going to hold off trying the Nik plug in. They only have a 15 day free trial and I want to get some more images before I pull the trigger.
Thanks,
Bill

I can see I can do HDR in Photoshop CS4. But the results don't look as good as photomatics.
