"D5100 HDR in D7000?"


Tampa, US
          

I'm intrigued by the HDR function in the new D5100. Does anyone know if this function could be added to the D7000 in the future via a firmware upgrade?

Thanks!

Could it be added to the d7000 via firmware? Yes.

Will it? Highly unlikely. I say this because this feature is not really revolutionary from a technology point of view. If Nikon wanted it in the d7k they would have added it at the time, but they clearly figure that the d7k user (in their mind a more advanced user)would not be all that attracted to this feature. I suspect that Nikon put it in the d5100 because HDR has a lot of buzz, and the market for the d5100(relative beginners) would like to have a user friendly way of trying out HDR. More advanced users, would prefer to take the exposures and combine them in post processing so they can tweak their settings, and use Photomatix which tends to produce better results then Nikon's HDR Efex (which I assume is the basis for their in camera HDR).

They should add 1080 Video at 30fps while they are at it.
I would also like to see the recording time increased and FullTime AutoFocus improved.

At 30fps 720 my camera does not even feel warm after 20 minutes
and I can instantly restart the recording
but I often miss that opportunity and leave a gap.
Perhaps that might require a buffer increase?


Maybe you would like to see other firmware possible enhancements too?

I wasn't particularly impressed by the D5100 HDR samples. The radius they were applying on the effect seemed quite huge. I think it's ok to help basic snaphots and such, but I wouldn't personally use it for any of my HDR work.

On the other hand, if it was included in a future D7000 firmware update I might use it for basic snapshots . I am using a Fuji F500EXR for casual stuff which has a decent HDR system built-in, but that's only because of how the sensor in that P&S is designed.
