Olympus should implement decent auto-bracketing on their cameras via a firmware upgrade. This would be the easiest thing in the world to do. HDR can and does improve certain types of pictures. It is not a gimmick like "art filters" are. At a minimum, we should have 5-frame auto bracketing in 1/3- to 2-stop increments and be able to use it with the timer function. All it would take is a simple software tweak.

As for the rest of the ways M43 is "lagging behind," I don't buy it.

10 sec. in the menu. 2-7 pictures.

Thanks for that.  I know the camera can do bracketing, but the only way I've found requires you to hold the shutter button down for the entire cycle, which creates shake/alignment problems.  You should be able to use it with the timer and have it continuously cycle through all the brackets as fast as possible once the timer counts down.  My old Canon S95 would do this.

Plus it shouldn't be buried in 10 seconds worth of menu shuffling.  It should be accessible with one, maybe two, twirls of a knob or presses of a button.  At a minimum, I should be able to set a MySet that will switch in and out of bracketing as the button is toggled.

My only disclaimer is that I could be wrong about all of this.  The camera is complex.  So please, please someone show me that bracketing is easy.  You would make my day.
