What is HDR, High Dynamic Range, and what is it used for?

HDR or , High Dynamic Range, is a special function in the digital cameras that allows you to show int he same picture a mix of images that are exposed to more or less light so that the final, combined image, will be able to show the object from darker spots and also from the brighter spots too.

This way you will be able to see all the details you want in your image, although the image itself will look a little too artificial.

You will also learn what f/1.4 of f-stops are: difference in power of 2. Example 6 f-stops, or f/6, means that it has a bright spot of 2x2x2x2x2x2 = 64 times brighter than the dark spot or 64:1. f/14 equals to 16000:1.
