I've recently gained interest in creating HDR photographs, and find that my camera that I currently own (Canon SD 700IS) is great, but makes the pictures harder to do.

I am in no way a pro with my pictures, that is why I stick with good quality compact cameras. I am looking for a camera that has AEB (Automatic Exposure Bracketing) or supports RAW files.

I would rather have one that does AEB, compared to RAW, but I'm not too picky in that regard.

The thing I am picky with, is that I'd prefer to try to stick with Canon or Sony, and would prefer it to be a compact/ultra compact camera.

Any advice would be welcomed, and even other suggestions too.

Thanks.

Canon S3. Can do AEB, and can also do RAW with a modified firmware.

Which one is better for HDR?

The compact Fuji's have RAW support as well (at least my Finepix E550 does) and have very good sensors.

Thanks for the idea, I was actually looking at the S5. That's probably a camera suitable for me then.

I'd prefer to stick with AEB, as then I can just combine the pictures myself. RAW is better if you have a moving object though, as I could do all the post editing and make the HDR too.

I'd really love to stick with an ultra compact camera like the SD 700 IS, but I will have to look elsewhere for my needs it looks.
