Hi, I am relatively new D7000 user. What is simplest way to set up using a remote control to trigger an in-camera HDR image. I know how to set up the remote but am unsure of the other settings. I will be using a tripod. Thank you.

If your thinking of iPhone type HDR it does not exist

On a tripod you can use bracketing, but to do it best you need to move your exposure about by hand using the cursor. Then create the HDR image in post.

I am not an expert

i believe it does exist using multiple exposure. I'm not sure of the settings.

I believe in camera HDR, which combines two photos with one click of the shutter, was introduced in Nikon cameras starting with the D5100. It has since been included in the D800, D4 and the new D600.

I don't know of a way, other than bracketing, you can make HDR photos using D7000 images. Of course that is in post.

There is one thing you can try, Multiple exposures in LiveView. See page 152 in your manual. I'm not sure what the finished photo will look like though. I don't think it will look like HDR.

I emailed Nikon Support and got a response back saying that you can not do multiple exposure and bracketing simultaneously.

The D7000 bracketing feature allows you to take 2 or 3 sequential photos at 1/3 to 2 stop intervals. The camera does not combine the images and assumes that HDR will be accomplished in post processing.

The D7000 does process two images for long exposure noise reduction where it takes a second photo of equal duration with the shutter closed and subtracts the artifacts of the "blank" image from the real image to eliminate noise artifacts produced by the camera. That's the only time I'm aware of where the camera combines two images.

You can set the camera to shoot in timer mode where it takes 3 shots in succession. That combined with bracketing will allow you to get 3 shots to make an HDR in post with whatever software solution you like. I use this strategy frequently so I only have to touch the camera once or can also use the timer/remote mode.

Yes, I have tried that and it works. I am also experimenting with 3 shot multiple exposure where I change the exposure compensation manually for each shot (+2,0,-2) with the camera on a tripod. That seems to work too.
