no, canon doesn't do tiffs. That's nikon, and BTW they're HUGE, like bigger than a raw file huge (I owned a D700 for a year).

damn the in camera function is pretty useless to me then. Unless you can export it as a HDR file

I think that you can set the camera to bracket up to 7 shots with 5DIII, then do an HDR process on them externally as you see fit (dunno if DPP will handle it, might need to use some other HDR software)...

But doing HDR in camera you are limited to using 3 images.

...I think... don't quote me on this because I've been wrong before (something my ex-wife used to remind me of fairly frequently).

AFAIK, Nikon offers up to 9 shot bracketing.... Canon has only managed 7 so far (their engineers probably ran out of fingers to count on :rolleyes:).

But, hey, I ain't complainin'! 7 is better than 3, which is all that any previous Canon models could do without the photog resetting for another series of shots.

Yeah, GREAT USE of HDR in those sample shots, OP. Just the sort of subject that lends itself to that sort of image. Canon should pay you large sums of money to use your shots on their websites as examples! ;)

You need 16 bit or something? I think the camera will simply make a JPEG - 8 bit - from the three RAW files... but saves the RAW files too. So perhaps you could use the in-camera conversion as sort of a preview JPEG of the HDR image, then do another, final conversion that generates the TIFF you need later in post-production. Having the in-camera "preview" JPEG might make it easier to edit the keepers and the outtakes, before going to the trouble and effort of making the final HDR.

That is great thanks for sharing, I have ordered my 5D III and will have it end of the month I hope, I really like the idea that Canon added HDR in camera so sweet, and once you try the new multiple exposure they added you will flip, so glad they included that also;)

It is 9 bracketing in 5D III from what I read, and Nikon does 2 images for in camera HDR.

this is gonna be a hotcake. The High ISO performance is what gonna make me pull the trigger. I think that's the most important one. To be able to shoot with freedom even at low light situation.

the only drawback for me is the articulated screen. I really love my 60D's arti-screen for achieving odd angle for both stills and videos.

thanks for sharing your short experienced with this new beast.

I know for sure its only 7 as I remember seeing that option in the menus. How to actually get the camera to do that, I didnt have enough time to figure it out unfortunately!!! :(

Ya maybe your right, but hey I think 7 is good enough, but truth be told for me I don't like heavy HDR and I think the in camera HDR will be fine for most shots,
here is the multiple exposure mode

i see what you're saying, just haven't worked with Jpegs for such a long time. it'd be nice if it made a raw file from the three images and you could still tweak that from there.

Thanks for sharing these samples! Impressed with the in-camera HDR feature. Ah, time to save up I guess. :)

If I recall, while Nikon offers 9 bracketed exposures, the max spread is 1EV for a total of +/- 8EV. My 1Ds MkII only does 7 bracketed exposures but at a max spread of 3 EV for a total of +/- 18EV.

I read that the 5D3 has a max spread of +/- 5EV. This is done using AEB.
