    I'm very new to the "DJI family", and I don't know how responsive they are to feature requests.

    But it seems to me it should be pretty straightforward for them to offer an HDR mode for the stills camera.

    I'm sure you all know how this works - the camera takes typically 3 shots, with one underexposed, one over exposed and one at the "correct" exposure.

    Then you munge them together in software afterwards, and a wider range of tones and shades can be extracted from the image.

    Smartphones have this feature as a downloadable app, so it would be easy to implement it with the existing hardware.

    Is there a "wishlist" for the Phantom range we can contribute to?

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    Since it takes RAW files you can play around to get more detail in shadows and highlights anyway.
    Bracketing would be a nice option without any in camera combining.
