Hi this is my first post. I do hope it will be a successful one too.

I commercially shoot HDR panos. If any of you have done this than you know a composite can easily be made of 60 images plus.

In a commercial environment being efficient is key. I was using the D200 with its 3F 2.0 setting. HDR works better with a 2 stop difference compared to only a 1 or even less. As far as I understand the NEW and improved D300 lacks a suitable range of auto bracketing... ie only up to 1 stop increments.... What is the point ?

I am hoping if their is a work around this - a custom user setting or even a firmware upgrade that will restore my beloved 3F 2.0.

Sure you can say - just bracket manually than... In an environment where registration is crucial one wants to limit the amount of time they have to adjust camera settings. Perhaps if I was just shooting a simple landscape - but I can easily shoot 300 - 1000 images a day... That is alot of extra time added having to adjust your camera.

For my purposes the D300 - albeit - better image quality - has a poorer workflow.... UNLESS anyone knows of a solution.


PLEASE help me!
Cheers
