Re: A77 Confession - Addicted to Auto HDR Mode
In reply to tom, Feb 5, 2012

I love the American 4-4-0 shot, Tom! As a railfan and a new A77 owner, I plan on using HDR mode for railroad photography as well. Although there aren't many steam trains around any more, most of the ones that do exist are solid black which typically makes it challenging to get the right exposure.

I used my wife's Sony DSC-HX5V in HDR mode to get the shot below which looks OK to me (no processing done). It's a lot better than having either a blown-out sky or a solid black locomotive! I'm assuming my A77 will do as nice of a job or better with HDR... but now I need to wait until I see another steam locomotive so I can test it
