In Camera HRD (one shot) tries to compress the full RAW Dynamic into JPEG.
In Raw You already have all the information.

Because to use the HDR mode the camera has to process the images. RAW images cannot be processed (apart from cheeky NR), so it can't produce a RAW file by combining other RAWs. I guess you could produce a TIFF, but it doesn't do that

thanks, that's about as clear an answer as i could hope for.so i will auto bracket 3 or 5 images and merge them as tiffs or go with in camera hdr in jpeg.

Beyond a single experiment, I haven't used the camera HDR but when I do I figure the first thing I'll do in pp is save it as tiff.
