Sony Cyber-shot HX300 review – Dynamic range

The dynamic range of the HX300 is good enough for a camera at this level. Expect the usual highlight clipping in scenes with a broad range of brightness values – for example, detail in the whites of sunlit clouds or white feathers of a bird may not be present. In the auto mode, if the camera detects that the scene has a wide dynamic range, it can automatically take a HDR image to boost tonal information. This is recorded over consecutive frames in quick succession, for which a tripod is not needed.
