Backlighting
The method used to capture details in shaded areas of back-lit
subjects depends on the option selected for HDR in the shoot-
ing menu (
On
Details in highlights and shadows are preserved using HDR (high
dynamic range); 
Z appears in the display. Each time the shutter-
release button is fully pressed, the camera takes two shots in quick
succession and combines them to preserve details in highlights
and shadows in high-contrast scenes; the built-in flash does not
fire. While the shots are combined, a message will be displayed and
the shutter release will be disabled. The final photograph will be
displayed when processing is complete.

The flash fires to “fill in” (illuminate) shadows in back-lit subjects.
Only one shot is taken when the shutter-release button is fully
pressed, and the flash fires with each shot. No pictures will be taken
if the built-in flash is not raised; raise the flash before shooting.

Framing HDR Photographs
The edges of the image will be cropped out. The desired results may
not be achieved if the camera or subject moves during shooting.
Depending on the scene, shading may be uneven and shadows may
appear around bright objects or halos around dark objects. If the cam-
era is unable to successfully combine the two images, a single image
will be recorded at normal exposure and Active D-Lighting (
be applied.
