Wishing composite had auto-align

Recently shot some composites, made me realize how much a simple implementation of a auto-align feature would be very useful. Any movement whatsoever in a composite destroys the sharpness, and it can be frustrating sometimes.

Hope you're reading this Pentax.....

I know....That's why it could be implemented into camera composite.

I think you might be underestimating the amount of computational power required. It's amazing what even a low-end modern tablet or PC can do, but those are processing power-houses compared to most DSLRs...

Hello Mike.
Perhaps it could be made possible for a small number of images. The HDR Modes do have the Auto Align option.

It does indeed, but even for three images, the process is time consuming, taking about 8 seconds on my K-3 for capture to DNG and somewhat longer for JPEG.

I don't see it happening for any significant number of images. As Steve says, HDR takes a fair amount of time to process (I thought it was longer than 8 seconds), but of course it is also doing its HDR thing as well. Probably the best thing is to use something truly steady like a bean bag or to combine in post.
