HX100V - Intelligent auto vs Superior Auto
Apr 8, 2011

I'm rather confused (not difficult!) about the difference, in practice, between the two. The best I've been able to find is Pocket-lint's description:

"You’ll also get an intelligent auto mode as well as a superior auto mode. The difference between them is that the superior mode will also work to enhance the image with HDR-like effects when needed rather than just choosing the right scene mode."

http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/38928/sony-cyber-shot-hx100-30x-optical-zoom#ixzz1IvX2LAtb

So What is HDR mode? How does it work? What does it do? Is it a useful addition? And if it's all these things why would you ever want to use the Intelligent Auto instead?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Beau
