BTW, recently I "discovered" crazy thing. I don't know if it is widely known but one can get amazing dynamic range from m4/3 camera (namely E-M1 III and E-M1X) using combination of ISO 64 and internal ND filter. I did short video about that (only in czech, sorry) but I was very very surprised what you can get back from strongly underexposed (-2 to -3 EV) picture created with this combination.

Here is the link to the video where I talk about it (16:48):

Before/After image enlarged to 100% is one shot only. I describe the setting and other example few moments after

Just for fun

To improve the dynamic range for cameras with low DR, one of the best ways is to shoot more exposures and combine them in post-processing.

Absolutely. Stacking is a great technique but it is also available to every digital camera. I suspect the reason why this technique is not widely adopted is because it requires post-processing. But I use it regularly.
