Does the SX40 HS really "combine" exposures?
Re: Does the SX40 HS really "combine" exposures?
What puzzles me about HDR mode is the missed opportunity from Canon. Here is a camera with incredible image stabilisation and a great deal of clever processing done inside the camera to correct distortion and chromatic aberration. The thing creates miracles. And yet with HDR mode nobody thought of hand-held HDR. Sure, it takes three shots at three different times but surely the processing inside the camera could have worked out if the image had moved slightly between the three shots and put these images back together correctly so that you would still get a sharp image if there was a small amount of shake.
