    Find the Camera icon.
    It's a gray or silver box with a black camera inside of it. It's also labeled "Camera". Give it a single press to open it. Let's take an HDR photo, or High Dynamic Range photo.

  5. 5
    Press "HDR" at the top of the screen.
    Now we have three options. "Auto", "On" or "Off". Obviously when it's off, it's not going to take any photos. When it's on, it will always take photos. With auto, it will automatically choose when to take and when to not take HDR photos.

  6. 6
    Let's turn it off.
    Tap "Off". Now it says "HDR Off" at the top of the screen. Personally, we prefer to leave it off when we are out taking photos of, for example, people, pets or moving objects such as cars or children.

  7. 7
    Tap "HDR" again and tap "On".
    We like to turn it on if we are taking photos of nature or scenery or other things like that. The reason for that is that HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is a technology that takes three separate exposures of the same image. However, if that image is moving, especially if it's moving quickly, then oftentimes, the photo will have ghosts. The image parts won't all be exactly in the same position, which can cause it to look bad. For this reason, we like to leave HDR off when we are generally using the camera, and as we said, on when taking nature photos. We do have several other articles, including an article about taking normal photos and what the difference is for those versus HDR, so make sure to check that out.
