Help with a D7200

I acquired a D7200 today and I was trying to set it up. In the photo shooting menu I can not access the HDR. When I try, it says that (This option is not available at current settings or in the camera's current state). I have checked all the things I can think of, but still can not access this option.

Can someone please help?

Thanks

Are you in one of the Scene or Auto modes? That will prohibit access to HDR mode, you have to be in one of the standard exposure modes like Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and I think even the Program Mode works but not the Auto or Scene modes. Same if you have Bracketing enabled, that will inhibit access to HDR mode.

I have the same problem.

I am in aperture mode. The only thing I can find for bracketing is in the custom setting menu and e6 auto bracketing is set to AE. I can’t find anything about turning bracketing on or off.

Thanks

Thanks everyone for your advice and help. What I found was the only way I could get the camera back to normal was to restore default settings. Now it looks good.

Thanks again

The d7200 is a great camera. I had one for 3 years or so and honestly regretted selling it. It’s a good camera for wildlife also considering the crop factor.

HDR shooting is restrictive - only two shots can be taken as JPGs. Much more flexibilty available with exposure bracketing - P197 of the manual.
