I had no clue the EM-5 has an in camera HDR mode. I know its got a pretty good bracketing mode, which I've used quite a bit (wish it was easier to access) but had no clue it could do the HDR like the Sony and Canon's do.

Like I say, I haven't really given it a thorough try, but there seem to be two ways to do it.

One is under the second shooting menu -> Multiple Exposure
Set 'Frame' to 2F and 'Auto Gain' to on.

The other is in the review menu. Let's say you bracket three images. In review mode, you can choose 'overlay', select up to 3 of the bracket images, then overlay them on top of each other. You can adjust how 'strong' the effect of each overlaid image is, and you can see the results on the screen, as you make your adjustments.

The original files are all preserved.

I'm not much of an HDR guy, but I'd like to see someone else play with these features to see how useful they are.
