    Hi All,

    Does anyone know of any new compact-class digital camera that has +/-3EV
    (6EV range) Auto Bracketting?

    SLR's are abundant, but these are not my preference.

    Many thanks.

    the only one that I can think of that might have it is the canon G11... I don't know though, it's definitely a BA PnS.

    Thanks for the tip.

    The Canon Powershot G11
    [​IMG]

    has only +/-2EV range.

    If I don't have my EOS 1000D, I will definite rush out to pay cash for this one.

    But I am now looking for a non-SLR camera that can do +/-3EV in 3 or 5 frames. I don't need the obsolete hinged mirrors of SLRs.

    If I want an SLR, I would have gone for the heavenly Canon 7D or Pentax K7.

    I'd have to say good luck with that, the hinged mirrors of SLRs is not obsolete or even close to obsolete yet

    Just a clarification. I do agree with you that SLR's are far from obsolete in the world of photography.

    What I meant to say is that from the point of view of a few die-hard HDR fans, a smooth shutter execution during the multi-shot sequence is important. The multi-exposure sequence should ideally be executed in as little time and as smoothly as possible. The clumsy mirror mechanism does come in the way during multiple exposures and makes such smooth execution impossible, particularly when moving subjects (eg. fast clouds, etc) are involved.

    Hope that clarifies. Cheers.

    The Nikon D300 would satify you much better. ;)
    HAHAHAHAH. You need to study up on your photography dude. clumsy? are you serious. Obsolete? not even close.
    IF you truly beleive what your said.....You really need to rethink your hobbies because it is clear your knowledge of photographic equipment is 0 to none.

    Good luck on your smoothly executing camera hunt....

    The G11 is not an SLR.


    lol this thread is hilarious.

    we're all impressed that you can pay cash for a G11. Sincerely.

    Well, I am sure you are not alone among the SLR-buying masses that find the suggestion of doing away with clunky mirror mechanisms and alternative ways to do the same job hilarious.

    no, I find it hilarious that you think you're a baller because you can drop cash on a G11 when it's only like $500. Also, I find it hilarious that you, for whatever reason, thought the G11 was an SLR, when in fact it is a point and shoot. Also, I find it hilarious that you think 6EV bracketing is the most important factor in your new camera choice. Also, I think it's hilarious that you're so in love with HDR photos.

    That's what I find hilarious.

    You are also not alone when you laugh at HDR as though it is something far out.

    Of course, if you are ingrained with the old-fashioned old damsel of 'avaialble light' photography, you'd laugh even more vigorously at HDR.

    Anyways, coming back to my topic, I just found out that the Sigma DP2 may be what I am looking for. It's got +/-3EV AEB in 3 frames and a lens shutter too.
