It make me laugh that people mistake artisitcaly "mutilated" photos with HDR.HDR stands for HighDynamicRange thats it and nothing more. Its a photo which combine light information from 2 or more images into ONE. AND HDR STOP HERE.Of course the more light information u have, the more post processing u can but also a dslr has much more light inf. than a low budget compact camera dont u think? Should we call HDR cameras and not DSLR?I am dreaming the day when we will not need that 3shots HDR technique but instead the cameras have more Range.and @j2ker, HDR is for making images more REALISTIC not for artistic postprocessing.
