Hello,

Something I noticed with some of my photos is that HDR on auto might not work, as intended.
When I set it to "auto" there's a message in the upper left that HDR is on, but when I take the picture it looks exactly(almost) the same as when it's set to disabled. When I set it to "on" rather than auto the difference is noticeable.

Here is one example. This was taken during sunset:

HDR Auto: https://imgur.com/a/76v81

HDR Off: https://imgur.com/a/myPgl

HDR On: https://imgur.com/a/iWhp4

I can only see a subtle difference between Auto & Off. When it's set to On there's clearly more detail in the sky.
Does anyone else get similar results?

Maybe it just uses a different algorithm when it's set to auto compared to when it's forced to be on.

Just took some pix with HDR off, on auto, and on. I did it on a Joby tripod so the camera wouldn't shift. Like you, I see no difference between the "off" and "auto". With HDR "on" there is a definite difference with darker areas becoming more visible. The whole picture is a bit lighter, and not in a good way. Clouds are too bright and loose some detail.
