I'm not a huge fan of most HDR imagery, but to each his own. I do, however use it myself, albeit infrequently, it a VERY subtle manner - in order to get some look of increased dynamic range. It's always a been a bit if a pain, though, as I hardly ever bring along a tripod when I go out shooting. This is where the E-M5 is truly ground breaking for me. Making use of the incredible 5 axis IBIS and astounding 9 FPS, I'm able to grab 5 bracketed exposures HAND-HELD! Then, all that needs to be done is use the great functionality of NIK software's HDR EfexPro, and - quick as a whistle - great images. Here's how you do it... Set your E-M5 up in Aperture Priority Set your drive mode to high-speed sequential, 9 FPS Set AE bracketing to what you like for HDR eg. 5 frames at 1EV difference Set single AF and IS1 on Make sure Drive + IS = Off Focus on your desired subject and mash the shutter release, then bring the resultant 5 images into the HDR software of your choosing and voila!
