RX10/rx100m3: Bracketing: Exposure, White Balance, DRO, HDR
page references from RX10 476 page manual, different page numbers in manual variations
rx100m3, same Bionz X processor, so, I presume it will do these the same way.
last shot taken (+___?) in a bracket series is the one shown when using Auto Review, not 0.0 ev.
216 BRACKETING DRIVE MODES (other bracketing is available via menu settings)
BKT C continuous images each with different degrees of brightness. (hold shutter button down)
BKT S Single Bracket: u pick range, u pick 3 or 5 shots, (press shutter for each successive shot)
BRK WB White Balance: three images: different degrees of brightness according to the selected settings for white balance, color temperature and color filter.
DRO Bracket: three images, each a different degree of D-Range Optimization.
228 Bracket Order (default 0, -, +), or, (u change it to: -, 0, +)
sets the shooting order for exposure bracketing and white balance bracketing.
222, BRK C, (exposure bracketing, continuous, hold shutter button down)
Bracket Exposure from default 0 ev, or, pre-adjust exposure + or -, then bracket from that setting.
u pick range: +/- .03 up to +/- 3.0 ev; u pick 3 or 5 shots; (default: 3 shots +/- .03 ev)
Manual Drive Mode Exposure Bracketing: two modes depending on Auto ISO or Specific ISO
Manual, Auto ISO: variations are ISO changes
Manual, Specific ISO: variations are shutter speed.
224, BRK S, (same as BRK C, EXCEPT, you choose when to take each shot in the sequence)
u pick range, u pick 3 or 5 shots, then, u press shutter for each sequential shot when desired.
226, BRK WB (3 White Balance variations) u pick range: default Lo, or Hi.
according to the selected settings of white balance, color temperature and color filter.
227, BRK DRO (dynamic range optimization) (3 various DRO shots; 2 ranges: Lo or Hi)
DRO: Lo (default): a series of 3 images with small changes in the D-Range Optimizer value.
DRO: Hi: a series of 3 images with large changes in the D-Range Optimizer value.
232 DRO (dynamic range optimization) (one in-camera created shot)(see BRK DRO for 3 variations)
Creates one dynamic range optimized shot , select the range, Auto, or L1 weak to L5 strong.
"By dividing the image into small areas, the camera analyzes the contrast of light and shadow between the subject and the background, and creates an image with the optimal brightness and gradation".
Note: "the image may be noisy. Select the proper level by checking the recorded image, especially when you enhance the effect".
DRO option is OFF for: Panorama, Multi Frame Noise Reduction, Picture Effect, Many Scenes
234, Auto HDR (high/wide dynamic range) (two shots: normal and in-camera HDR alternate, Jpeg only)
HDR Auto: camera automatically selects the amount of dynamic range
HDR, u set differential range: from weak 1 (ev), to high 6 (ev).
Note: DRO is 'optimized', HDR is intentionally 'wide'
Nice! Thank you for reminding, refreshing Bracketing Technics.
You always gave a very helpful notes, very creative to people. I really enjoy them a lot.
