HDR Options

Had the new K1 for around 3weeks now and it's a major step up from the K10D i've had for 8 years. Exploring this new beast is both stimulating and daunting at the same time.

Have starting experimenting with HDR which is new for me. Can someone please explain the various options for the HDR setting in the menu.

Thanks

See the HDR section here for a breakdown of the options:

Note that the only setting that affects RAW files is the EV spread, which you configure in the record menu. The other settings (HDR1-3, HDR auto, and advanced HDR) only affect the JPEG HDR appearance.

If you want to manually merge your files instead of working with a single HDR raw file, you can always choose to bracket the old way.

Thank you. This wasn't clear on several reads of the operating manual.
