K7 HDR mode

MY HDR mode is greyed out. How do I set it to on?

bluestringer,
What format are you running? (As you may know, HDR only works in JPEG.)

Yep, HDR only works if you shoot jpeg. In my opinion you may get better results shooting RAW underexposed and pushing shadows.

Its by far better to use bracketing to capture the raw images and then combine in post processing.

I'm shooting RAW, so that must be the problem. I know nothing about HDR, just wanted to try it out. I don't think my software gives me the option to combine images. Thanks.

I don't do HDR very often, but I use Photomatix to do so.
