I think they look so much better than regular camera shots. I know these would make my friends scratch their hands as to how I can take such good pictures.

I'm curious, though, how in-camera HDR would handle moving objects like people.

First of all, Caryl - I think your Leica makes good HDR's. They look good and have very good contrast, as well as span of values. Great function to have!

I don't think that's a problem, as I suspect the in-camera tone-mapping is a 'Pseudo-HDR'-mapping taken from one single shot, rather as we know, of several shots put together into 1 HDR-output.

You can see that in both pictures. In # 1 the flag on top of that building is crisp and sharp. No sign of movement there.

In # 2 in the lower-right corner you can see a car in the street turning left, further up the street, people are walking, crossing the street - no sign of ghosting there! Also, out in the bay, the boats are moving, but no ghosting there.

vv,

I did say HDR in camera will be the next big thing, it will be a standard feature in the next 2-5 years on all cameras I think.

Is that a window reflection over the white building to the right of center?
