HDR Mode

On this Nikon D5200, the HDR op­tion is half way down the Shoot­ing menu. It re­sets to ‘Off’ af­ter each HDR pic­ture you take, so you’ll need to re­ac­ti­vate it each time. The cam­era will take the two ex­po­sures needed with a sin­gle press of the shut­ter but­ton.

HDR mode comes in dif­fer­ent strengths. Use Auto if you’re not sure how much to ap­ply or pick a man­ual set­ting if you know the ef­fect you’re af­ter. The strength needed will de­pend on the scene, so take a cou­ple of shots at dif­fer­ent set­tings.

HDR soft­ware

Merg­ing ex­po­sures us­ing HDR soft­ware re­quires a dif­fer­ent ap­proach. Make sure the cam­era’s brack­et­ing op­tion is set to AE brack­et­ing on the Cus­tom Set­tings menu, then use the cam­era’s brack­et­ing op­tion with a wide ex­po­sure in­ter­val of 2.0EV.
