A Point-and-Shoot That Can Take HDR Photos



    The new HDR camera.

    High Dynamic Range, or HDR, photography combines many photos of the same subject with different light ranges into one beautiful shot. It normally requires a good deal of work in post production software such as Photoshop to pull off.

    BenQ's new E1260 HDR point-and-shoot camera now allows you to pull off such feats without needing to know a thing about Photoshop. Instead, it merges multiple shots together (better bring a tripod) into one image automatically, taking all of the grunt work out of it. Do the finished results look as good as HDR shots made by pros? Who knows. But it's definitely an interesting feature for a lower-end camera such as this.
