Which Nikons do HDR?

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

All of them,...so long as you do it yourself outside of the camera

The only Nikons that I know of that have the HDR function built in are the new D800, D4, and D5100. By that I mean it processes the HDR for you, in-camera.

Most of the other upper level Nikon models have bracketing, but that only gives you the individual images, it doesn't merge them for you.

Good as I've been eying the D5100. The extra $150 over the D3100 seems worth it and it is hardly any larger or heavier either.

How do the in camera images compare to taking separate shots and merging them using software?

I can't imagine the in camera processing is going to be as good, but sometimes quick and dirty is plenty good enough and saves valuable time better spent taking more pictures rather than hours in front of the computer tweakin' images.

Yeah, I have no idea, I've never used it either. I do know that doing HDR on the computer is a pain in the you know what and requires software that I simply don't want to buy/spend my money on. If the camera does it, thats perfect and probably good enough for me or I could always slightly tweak it later....

I did 5hr time lapse of a tulip opening today. I timed it wrong, and the flower didn't open. Picture 1 and Picture 568 look exactly the same. I was like....really?

You can download CombineZM for free. It's not the best, but it works ok.
