Greetings everyone,

 

My Pentax K-50 has different "modes" for the following:

  1. HDR (only compatible with JPEG)
  2. Multi-Exposure
  3. Exposure bracketing

What's the difference?

 

Thank you,

Jeff

Hi,

 

in camera HDR will create a HDR image in camera. You can possibly choose between a few presets and the camera will do the rest. It will take a couple of images and combine them to an HDR image. You have no further control over the creation of the image.

 

With Multiple-Exposure you can take an image of a person or something else and after that you can take another picture. The camera will do a kind of overlay of these two pictures. (How to do cool Double Exposure Portraits)

 

Exposure bracketing is similar to the HDR-Mode. The difference is that you can take Raw-files and you have to combine the images in post processing. With exposure bracketing you have the possibility to control how much stops you will under- and overexpose. (HDR Tutorial with Bracketing and Photomatix ProBasics of HDR Photography)

 

So basically number one and three have the same purpose, expending the limitations of the dynamic range of the digital sensor.

One is the "auto-mode" and three the "manual-mode".

 

Two is a completely different thing. It is like exposing a film two times.

 

I hope I could help you a bit

 

best regards

 

Jan
