I joined the forum specifically because I like to take HDR. Here's the setup to my question:
- I have been using a micro four thirds (MFT) with the capability to bracket up to seven shots. I like to use at least five. Normally I shoot -2EV, -1EV, 0, +1EV, and +2EV. More if I have a lot of light or in low light. The MFT sensor is very small and can give me problems with noise, so I upgraded to a Nikon D5300 recently. This camera only allows three bracketed photos at a time.
So, here is the question in a nutshell:
- Will the three bracketed photos on my Nikon D5300 give me the same tonal range as as five or seven on my MFT?
I've read both sides and there does not seem to be a solid consensus. Some people say the more EV's you have, the better. Another photographer said she has good luck with just three. Having said all that, the more sophisticated Nikon's actually have the larger photo brackets. For example, the Nikon D7100 can go up to five. The D610 only uses three brackets. The D750 has nine brackets. There does not seem to be a correlation between the sensor quality and the bracketing ability on Nikons.
Any thoughts and input is appreciated.
