I used to have a Panasonic Lumix bridge camera, which had a dedicated HDR setting that effectively took 3 bracketed shots. These were saved in RAW and could then be imported into an HDR processor to produce one JPG.
The Nikon HDR function only uses two images, which are saved as JPGs, and it compiles them in camera to produce a JPG.
The obvious way to get a similar effect to the Lumix is to use bracketing. I set this up and have used the self-timer to take three consecutive shots.
However, the camera seems to be taking a very long time to complete this process. To set up the shot, I have use live-view to see the scene on the LCD. I hear this 'clunk', then there's a pause, then the three shots are taken, but I there's a long pause between shots.
The SSD card is a FlashAir 32Gb which I thought should be fast enough.
Any ideas what else I can do?
Many thanks, Graham
