    Is anyone using their X-E1 for HDR work? I'm considering it for my next camera, but haven't seen much HDR work done with them. I would like to have more range than is available with it's bracketing feature, without touching it to change the exposure compensation. I have checked out the Trigger Trap, and it seems it may work. But haven't heard of anyone using it for HDR on the X-E1 to know for sure. Also most HDR guys recommend using RAW files, which adds another problem with much of the software out there. So anyone out there doing HDR with a X-E1 please let me know what is working well for you, and drop some pics, or links to your work here. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks, Chuck.

    Unfortunately, I am no expert for HDR, so I only shot 2 quick HDR samples for my book, merely serving as "proofs of concept".

    This one was using 7 shots with different exposure (I simply merged the OOC JPEGs):

    And this one was taken from a single RAW, 3 JPEGs generated with ISO BKT:

    I am sure more capable HDR folks will chime in, but at least I could demonstrate that HDR is possible, just like with any camera that offers manual control over exposure.
