Point taken :) Each to their own. I see some amazing HDR but about 1% of the time. The most amazing HDR for me is when it doesn't look like HDR. So often it has that 'confected' artificial look I find. It becomes a processing look of its own and often due to non-judicious post processing - or people taking too much of a dynamic leap.

But just my opinion obviously.

I understand what you are saying ... IMHO, in the resent years HDR photography technique has influenced a lot of people and many probably tried to emulate that technique and probably didn't fare well, so I suppose the fault lies more with the photographer's ability to use HDR correctly rather than some fault of HDR ... after all it is just a tool ... the same applies to any photography technique ... take saturation for example ... I've seen photos where they have been post processed so bad that the saturation looks artificial, but that is the fault of the photographer and not the fault of saturation.
This is where 5D MK III shines ... see this pic ... it was made in a very dimly lit corner of an exhibition booth today at the Offshore Middle East Conference ... when I saw that food, I immediately wanted to see what the 5D MK III's in-camera HDR could come up with ... the photo is handheld and no post processing, it is straight out of the camera ... I didn't pay any special attention to composition ... all I did is, set it to f/16 on Av mode, ISO 100, enable in-camera HDR to Natural, point and shoot. IMHO, nowhere does the photo look like HDR.

I completely agree. That is what I call good HDR.

Mehhh...  HDR = "Clown Barf" images for the most part

It's like playing the guitar... lots of people can do it but only a few are really good at it.

So do you call Guitar = "Crown Barf music for the most part"? ... HDR is a tool just like a Guitar ... the output is dependent on the person using it ... therefore, HDR is not "Clown Barf".

I use in-camera HDR quite a bit since I bracket many shots. I usually end up deleting the in-camera version since it's JPEG and for natural style mine usually seem soft and low contrast. HOWEVER, it is really handy to preview shots that way. If they could be TIFF instead of JPEG, that would be incredibly helpful.

I've only had the 5D3 for a little while, but I think I'm tending more towards 5 shot brackets since that's supported now and I like the extra latitude.

Overall, it's not bad for in camera and it's handy to have, especially if I want to try something quickly.

Has anyone else notice significant battery drain with lots of HDR use?

Built-in 5D Mark III HDR, Art Vivid. I like the results except for the transitions between sky and land (trees etc) - glow.

I'm not really seeing what you are getting at in that particular shot. Are you sure you have linked the right image?

Yes, I might have been a little unclear - the image is cropped to exclude the sky part as it looks bad. Which in hindsight might have been a bad idea since this thread is about the performance of the built in HDR function :)

Here is a truck I'm more happy about:

Gave this a try the other day on a street scene. I was pleasantly surprised to be honest.




I still don't see myself using it though. It's more of a gimmick to an advanced user, but a newbie might appreciate it.

Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Nope. It was a crappy throw away image. What impressed me was the tonality and the colour. Not on the Standard setting though; that was diabolical.

You're right though, Rienz. What's the point of talking about an image instead of showing it.


I'll do another one and post it when I can.




Art Standard was the setting I was talking about. I found the other settings to be either dull, or completely over the top.


The other problem I found was that the ghosting was badly controlled by the camera.




But, like I said before, I just see it as more of a gimmick than a useful feature. Someone who wants to do it properly will just fill their card with a good set of bracketed images and go to town on them at home.

Here's an in-camera HDR shot with the 5D MK III made during the monsoons in India ... image is straight out of the camera ... no PP other than resize for uploading.
