Auto Exposure Bracketing

In AEB mode, the camera automatically changes the aperture or shutter speed by a given exposure range (measured in EV) across at least three photos. This results in one photo taken at the exposure you have set, plus at least two photos which bracket the central exposure point on either side by the exposure range. AEB is beneficial in any situation, but only really necessary when you need to shoot your brackets quickly (moving clouds are a prime example of this). AEB allows you to work at the...

Dynamic Range

Within the context of photography, dynamic range is the range of light, from little to much, that can be measured and recorded, normally by a single exposure. It is not how little light can be measured nor is it how much light can be measured. It is the difference between the two. Dynamic range is often characterized by the terms exposure value (EV) levels, zones, levels, or stops of range. Blown-out details, quite often skies, are the result of limited dynamic range. Too much light overexposes...

The most serious of these limitations, as it relates to High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, is dynamic range. The simple truth of the matter is that digital cameras are unable to fully capture what you see with your eyes much of the time. The world is a deeply complex...
