Do you use the HDR when taking picture? What about 'auto-enhance' afterwards when you edit?

    I use HDR (when I can remember to turn it on - it always defaults to off for some reason). I have it set to toss the low quality pics and keep the hi-res version.

    I only use the auto-enhance thing if I fell the pic needs it. Most of my pics aren't important so I usually don't bother.

    I leave HDR on all the time, and only turn it off if I'm taking a photo in a really dark scene where it causes motion blur.

    I leave HDR off. I dont like the delay after taking the photo.

    Depends on the situation. If the lighting is better served by HDR, I use it. Otherwise I just leave it off. Almost all my editing is done on my Mac for pix I want to keep. I only do simple edits for posting to FB or similar.

    I use HDR when I'm actually trying to take a good picture, that way I have options afterwords so I can pick whatever turned out better. I don't use auto HDR because when I trust it to take an HDR picture when I can tell the scene really needs it, it doesn't take an HDR photo. Or it takes it randomly when it doesn't need it. I just prefer to use it when I know it will be useful to me.

    I never use auto enhance, I like to go more in depth and edit particular things.

    What do you mean? An HDR photo is just one photo after it's processed, it doesn't let you pick which one turned out better.

    He probably means that he has the option of the HDR photo, or the regular photo to choose from.

    Yeah I meant I have two photos afterword I can manually choose from when I'm trying to get a good shot. Sometimes HDR does good things and sometimes it does bad things.

    I keep HDR Auto on, and I have it set to only keep the HDR version. I've never found it to slow things down, and I always prefer the HDR version anyway.
