Fujifilm's D-Range option continues to be impressive. Switching to EXR mode and setting it to D-Range Priority allows you to select the amount you'd like to use. The top left photo was taken at DR 100 percent, which gives you better contrast indoors or under overcast skies. This is the result you'd likely get from a typical point-and-shoot.
The bottom right is set to the maximum of DR 1600 percent and you can see what a difference it makes, completely rescuing details lost. The only disadvantages to using it really is that the ISO needs to be at least 400 and the resolution is a maximum 8 megapixels (the former being more important than the latter.)
