I had been searching for techniques for capturing an image which has a fairly higher dynamic range of light; that is I want to capture the details in shadows as well as highlights. While I know this can be done by merging the images shot at various exposure settings in Photoshop, I wanted to know if there is a way to capture high dynamic range in camera itself. Please help!!!
There are a lot of DSLR cameras available in the market which are capable of caputring a scene with high dynamic range. So on google research I found a link which lists all the HDR DSLR cameras, you can get those details here – http://beforethecoffee.com/dslr-cameras-for-hdr/
Apart from bracketing, there is another way to have HDR effect in your normal DSLR camera, you can buy Graduated Neutral Density Filter (GNDF), these are lens type glasses and are attached to the front of the lens barrel before the lens, they can soften the over brightness of light in one part of the scene, making the over all highlights, reduced to mid-tones and can show every detail of the scene.
There are two sort of GNDF, soft and hard. Soft GNDF makes a gradual shift in the light intensity and hard GNDF makes abrupt shift in the intensity of light from the scene to the camera.
You can buy one as per your need, usually landscape photographers buy soft GNDF.
