This is an example using the Backlighting mode with the high-dynamic-range feature (HDR) on. The mode takes a burst of shots at a single press of the shutter release and combines them into one image for improved shadow detail on backlit subjects (right). This also seemed to remove some blur and softness from the photo.
What's nice is the camera simultaneously captures a second photo with a regular exposure (left). When the HDR feature is off, the camera corrects backlighting using the flash, which is better for portraits or other close, backlit subjects.
