Shoot The HDR Sequence
Firstly, set the Image Quality to RAW so you capture the image file straight from the sensor with no in-camera processing. Select the aperture-priority auto exposure mode (‘A’ or ‘Av’ on the dial or in the info display).
Dial in the aperture you want, such as f8.0, and focus on the subject. Once you’ve achieved focus, switch to manual focus to lock in this focus distance. This will prevent the autofocus changing between the shots in your sequence. It’s best to use a tripod when shooting HDR sequences to ensure the camera doesn’t move, but because the software will automatically align the shots, you can also shoot hand-held – just keep as still as possible if you do. Now press the shutter button and fire off your fiveshot burst. You’ll be able to review the underexposed-to-overexposed sequence of shots on screen.
