Hi Tim,

HDR in combination of Pano is great - but the flight time is getting critical by manuel positioning each single pano picture/row. For more dynamicand resolution I used the dng/raw files of my phantom.

Here my first results:

Very beautiful! Only the last panorama got this difference of the colors, probably because you was shooting in a auto mode

Hi Tim,

I´m living in Shekou, close to Seaworld.

You´re right. Last picture was in auto mode and also there was some haze in the air.  But I will try this next time with better weather conditions.

Great insight to the HDR feature, thanks.

1. Is this the method to get the highest resolution image from the camera?
2. Am I missing/overlooking anything, photography isn't my forte, but I'm loving what the P3 can do, I do use a polarising filter BTW.
3. Is there any other free HDR image processor out there (windows)? I can't find the GUI one and others I tried have the feature locked in trial mode...

Reason I ask is that the AEB images are 4000*2250 pixels, awesome for zoom and crop. Previously I was videoing all flights, then using VLC to take screen shots of the image/frame I wanted at a very nice 2704*1520, which I thought would be better than 1080*? from a single photo which I figure is standard 12MP HD.

I have the Advanced. Cheers!

Looks nice, I like those lights.
Another thing i'd like to mention is that the main idea of HDR  to have very dark and very bright  spots on a photo, like land and sky , So HDR will create well exposed and deep image

I frequently shoot HDR photos of real estate and regularly use the Photomatix HDR software. I use Photomatix because it is considered to be one of the best HDR programs and works excellent for me. Just recently upgraded to a Phantom 3, specifically for better aerial pics and video over the GoPro I was using.  The Phantom's ability to adjust my photo /video settings while flying was a huge draw. After reading through this thread I realized that many people associate HDR with photos that look unrealistic and in some cases even like paintings. This couldn't be further from the truth.

Photomatix has an array of settings most of which will give you that unrealistic look. But the settings I use are called Fusion Real Estate or Natural. With these settings I can obtain very realistic photos but with incredible dynamic range. The most difficult photo I shoot is an interior shot pointing directly a window with bright sunshine coming through and being able to capture everything inside the home as well as a crystal clear view of outside. Without using HDR this shot is impossible. Conventional cameras are just unable to capture the wide dynamic range of light. Many times there is a difference of 7 to 8 stops of light between the window and the homes interior. This shot requires eight different exposures to capture all the details from the darkest to lightest parts of the photo. Photomatix then combines the 8 photos into one which looks like what the human eye sees.

Shooting sunsets with the Phantom's AEB program for HDR photos was something I wanted to try. The first limitation I discovered was the Phantom's narrow range of bracketing exposures. A maximum of 5 shots spaced .7 stops apart is nowhere near enough to capture a bright sunset and also properly expose the foreground. With perhaps 7 shots and 1 stop spacing the Phantom could step into a whole other dimension of aerial camera. So if your listening DJI please consider expanding a really cool AEB feature to an awesome one.

DJI Tim,

Is there any possibility we could get the DJI Tech guys to make automatic single shots available every 2/ 3/ 4/ 5 seconds during the whole flight.

This would make life a whole lot easier when trying to record still images for 3D model purposes.

Hi Tim,

I´m living in Shekou, close to Seaworld.

Nice to see someone else from Shenzhen with a DJI drone, you've flown at a few places I've been (I liked the hotel shot at Dameisha). I also have a few friends with Phantoms and other brands.

We should start a group or something!

Thanks, great thread.

Just wondering how this differs from using a RAW format to adjust settings in post.
Are there more options with using AEB, compared to just using a RAW image?

This is awesome Javier! I think it has to be a good balance when it comes to HDR (keeping original photographic details) and I think you executed that in here very well.

I hope you get your bird back, may I ask what happened?

Hey, I'd be most interested in seeing what kind of results you are getting with your Interiors.  Would you share the link for your website or online gallery with samples of your work? I am thinking of getting the Osmo to do 360 panos with AEB or HDR.  I currently process my HDR with LR, but will also check AuroraHDR trial version to see what it is like.
