There is a common confusion between HDR needing TONE MAPPINGAnd EXPOSURE FUSION.I don't even speak about FAKE HDR with a single picture...
True HDR create an HDR image (usually 32bits) witch is not visible on any media (screen, print...).Then apply "Tone Mapping" to "compress" the "over"dynamic to visible image format like a JPEG, TIFF...
Exposure Fusion is NOT True HDR.Because it don't create any HDR (32bits) intermediary image.It just "pick" the bests pixels on each picture and create directly the final one.And it is faster.
So i can tell you one thing : there is NO camera doing True HDR nowadays ;)-They do fake HDR with a single picture by raising the contrast/saturation/etc...-They do Exposure Fusion with multiple bracketed pictures.
But they DON'T do True HDR.
True HDR, for now, is limited to more powerful devices like computers and may be tablets, phones.
Use any Exposure Fusion for natural result.And you can try SNS-HDR (my fav) if you want True HDR natural result.
MarcusGR: PLEASE, DP REVIEW, STOP BOYCOTTING FUJI !!!In ALL your super-zoom reviews, including this about the new Pana FZ200,you methodically "forget" Fuji X-S1 ... !!!!How can you say of pana FZ200 that it is "at least on paper, by far the best choice in the superzoom segment for low light shooting" ???This is simply A BIG LIE: Pana FZ200 has a RIDICULOUS 1/2.33" sensor, whereas Fuji X-S1 has a HUGE 2/3" sensor, and both have equally bright lenses.WHY, by the way, you never tested X-S1 ? Are you objective reviewers ??
FUJI make bad optics and loose all image quality inside it.X-S1 is a good example of good sensor and bad lens combination...and it is a bridge, so you can't change the lens.
When the details are lost in the lens, sensor and electronic can't do nothing to it.Everything else is nice on this camera, but frankly look the price and the image quality compared to a 300$ SX40 HS
If you want a cheap and good image quality bridge, buy the Canon SX40 HS.If you want to put more money, buy a Panasonic.You will not be disappointed, even at extreme focal lengths.Because Leica and Canon make good optics, not FUJI.It is obvious when you compare similar shoots in the same conditions.
FZ200 is probably the best bridge now, image quality wise.And EVF is better too (EVF was a good point with X-S1).
I agree anyway about DPReview not making an X-S1 review...but now it is too late.
