I’ve been using the auto-bracket feature on my Canon EOS T5 Rebel a bit lately. I believe some cameras allow you to take up to 5 bracketed shots with the push of a button, but the T5 is limited to 3 shots. The intervals of the related under and over exposed shots are however, customizable. I normally distance each photo by about 2/3 stops of light. While still regularly checking the histogram on my LCD, the bracketing feature is particularly helpful for daily landscape photography, where highlight areas are easily clipped.
Below is an HDR image created from one such bracket of exposures. I left most of the HDR sliders in default positions and this created a fairly natural looking jpeg. I could be imagining things, but I still think I see slight halos on the trees in the horizon though…. For further comparison I’ve included a split screen comparison with my single best frame against the HDR output. This makes it easier to see how detail was gained in both the sky and foreground.
