Re: Using Auto DR400 - What Triggers DR200 and DR400?

Thanks, from the way you reworded your original statement, I take it you amended it for the F/HS series which still take two different exposures for M size DR 400 ISO 400, but as soon as ISO goes over 400 they switch over to software DR enhancement?

Also, I wonder if AUTO DR 400 works the same way at M size (where ISO does not change to increase DR)..... in my tests with my camera I have found that AUTO DR needs rather extreme conditions to raise DR and so I keep my camera to DR 400 all the time.  Maybe that's because I use spot metering?  Another side effect I have found in my camera of using AUTO DR is that it raises ISO even at M size- except it wasn't raising it to 400- it was raising it to 1600! and this was in full sunshine! Maybe Fuji changed its implementation of Auto DR and fixed it, but I've always avoided that setting.
