So I've had a 5D III for some time now and have grown quite fond, under the right conditions, of the Art Standard HDR mode. I purchased a 6D to have a lower-cost model that has the HDR capability, but couldn't find any other options for the HDR aside from the normal. Does the 6D not have the Art Standard or Vivid options?

There's no other options for HDR other than normal that i have seen.

Fairly disappointed with the HDR on the 6D :(

Me as well. I had a great workflow with the HDR results from the 5D III and bought the 6D in order to save actuations on the 5D III (that is my main wedding/studio camera) and photographed 2 houses today on the 6D. I adjusted the +- settings a few times, but it doesn't really compare. Sort of sad that they honestly stripped that down so much and shoved it in there. I wouldn't have purchased the camera otherwise as my 5D II was a perfectly fine backup for wedding work.

You could always shoot in RAW, take the three source files from your HDR shot and process them in Canon's Digital Photo Professional software, which has all the HDR settings from the 5D3 in it's HDR feature. It will also allow you to further refine the image. I found the results in DPP to be better than what I could get directly from the 5D3.

This shot was done via my suggested method.

Yes you can do HDR with any Canon camera using the HDR tool in DPP.

Does the 5D "classic" do the same? There is not HDR in 5Dc but +2/-2 Auto-bracketing. Will it work in DPP? I never saw the HDR option in DPP.

Thanks.

You may need to update DPP, but it should be there and works on RAW and JPEG files (I havent tried tiffs, but cant see why it wouldnt work)

Yes it should work, provided that you have the most recent upgrade of DPP(you'll find it in the "Tools" drop-down menu box) and that this version supports the RAW files of the 5Dc...They are CR2 aren't they?

I've gotten good results from RAW files but while it works on JPEGs and TIFFs, I have not gotten good results with these files. Perhaps I need your formula Simpleboy?

Good to know; will give it a try. I've got several shots in mind that would benefit greatly using HDR.

DPP can also make an HDR from a single RAW image too. Prolly not as good as 3 source files but it works pretty good nonetheless.

Yes, it works with a single image. I think that in this case it is called "Tone Mapped" rather than true "HDR", but you still get the properties of an HDR image. I like how it brings out the fine detail in B&W images.

For the record; I took the 5D III on a house shoot today and recorded 3 RAWS + 1 JPEG (the finished HDR file) in order to see if DPP processes the 3 RAWs similarly with the "Art Standard" setting presented in camera. The results were not even close. The 5D III's in-camera result far surpassed the DPP image, even with adjusting. I'll be selling the 6D and just picking up a second 5D III.

It works for 5Dc and JPEGS

Just updated DPP to the 3.x.x. version. Had a little trouble with the synchronization of folders and I couldn't see the HDR tool active for a while. Once i stopped the synch. I was able to see the HDR tool active.

Just want to say a big thank you to all the forum members who replied to our questions and give permanent and good advise.

Here are the results using JPEGs in DPP-HDR. I will do some additional tests using raw files from the 5Dc.

That's what I'm getting at... that looks like a single exposure just pushed in the shadows.
