FZ1000 HDR Experience, "Tricks" & Samples
2

Hello,

First the samples: First Photo is Single Shot, Second Sample is HDR: All in all 4 pairs = 8 photos.

All photos are SOOC, no post-processing!

HDRs created by the camera has a Quality (sharpness) tradeoff. However, I soon discovered that this tradeoff sometimes was high, sometimes low (Sharpnes of HDR almost same as the Single Shot). All HDRs are Freehand!

What gives? Well, I had the Shutter Type set to Auto: Sometimes the Camera chose Mechanical Shutter, sometimes Electronic: When Mechanical Shutter was used, there is a long delay between each Shot that makes up the HDR: Thus there would be movement between each shot, and the HDR is "unsharp" when zoomed to 100%.

I then chose Electronic Shutter, and the quality of the HDR is much higher (at 100%), closer to the Single Shot quality.  With Electronic Shutter the HDR was created "Instantly" with much shorter delay between each shot: Thus it would be less movement between the Freehant Shots! This is the Trick that I refer to in the subhect!

I also use Shutter Priority with the shutter set to 1/1000 second for all shots below.
