Wow, now THAT would be an innovation - huge DR captured on the fly with dual pipelines/threaded processing; imagine if it evolved to apply quad and be able to set the camera to choose the dynamic bracketing amount and an option to additionally create the merged HDR and a choice to keep or toss the individual captures for total control if you still prefer do your own PP (which would be so much better!) This is the kind of innovation that we really need - DR no longer an issue.

Come to think of it, what if they did it with the current 12MP D3/D700 sensor - it would still be incredible.

Awesome - single shot HDR.

Mike
