iPhone vs 7D
Sep 27, 2011

OK, stupid title I know but hopefully got your attention if you're reading this far!

My boat was recently lifted out of the water for annual maintenance and I snapped a couple of pics using my iPhone (4) in HDR mode (below). I've discovered that photographing boats (bright white hulls against sparkling blue waters and/or skies) is a challenge to get the exposure right but I reckon my iPhone did a pretty good job using HDR to open up more detail in the darker areas without blowing out the brighter whites too badly.

If an iPhone can do this 'in camera', why can't my 7D without external processing? Or maybe it can and I don't know how to do it?!
