Just got an XSI!!!

I love this camera. I got the kit lens and a 70 - 300 mm canon EF lens. It's a little too big though, could have settle with a 50 - 200 mm lol. Anyways quick question.. How do i shoot HDR images? Or does this camera not support it?

Here's a cool pic i just took and one of a friends car:]

you need to take multiple exposures to create the HDR. then you need to download a program to combine all of the exposures into one picture.

I have the XTi.. I wasn't sure of the real need for XSi, especially the location of buttons I preferred them on the XTi over the XSi.

Oh well, so far so good.

The screen size enough should do it for you lol. I figured out the the HDRi thing. You put it in burst mode and turn on AEB. Shoots 3 different shots in different exposures which you can then merge in PS and save as an HDRi file.

Dont forget post-processing software like Photomatrix Pro, Artizen HDR, or FDR Tools, to name a few. A photomerged HDR file saved in Adobe does not produce a HDR photo, you have to use one of the above mentioned products for your desired look because a computer screen cannot properly display that 32bit HDR merged file.

Out of these 3 which would you reccomend the most? We only have Corel Paintshop Pro X2 v12.

Waiting for my XSi in the mail...

I reccomend this book for XSi owners:

lol trust me I know how HDRi works.. I use it a lot for lighting in 3D apps. Proper HDR images cannot be shot with a simple DSLR like the xsi. Real HDR cameras capture the image in 32 bit without having to shoot different exposures and merge them later on. Thats just a walk around.

Heres the guy that made HDRI. http://www.debevec.org/Probes/
