[Question] What is the Dynamic Range Double shot mode ?

The "dynamic range" of a digital camera refers to the range of brightness that can be processed by the camera.
When you shoot a scene with a high contrast between sunlight and shade, the bright areas appear overly bright and the image does not look natural. This is because the range of brightness that can be processed by the camera is narrower than that of the human eye.

When you shoot with the dynamic range double-shot mode, the scene is reproduced with a smooth transition from the bright areas to the dark areas, allowing you to capture a more natural-looking image.

  • With Dynamic Range Double shot, two consecutive pictures are taken with different exposures then are combined into one taking the properly exposed areas of each image.*1
    If you select [Plus Normal Shooting] in the shooting menu, you can record an image taken with normal shooting together with an image shot with expanded dynamic range.
  • (Image taken with expanded dynamic range (left) and image taken with normal shooting (right) ; images are simulated)

  • This mode uses a longer shooting time than other modes, so be careful of camera shake when taking pictures. TheCamera Shake Warning Symbol symbol is always displayed.

  • *1:Dynamic Range Expansion Effect
    The [Dynamic Range Expansion] option in the shooting menu offers 5 levels of dynamic range expansion: [Auto], [Very Weak], [Weak], [Medium], and [Strong]. The stronger the expansion effect, the wider the range of brightness that can be processed by the camera.
