    HDR greyed out, why?

    My HDR is greyed out when I try to choose it, but I don't know why. I know you can't use HDR in multiple exposure shots or when you've chosen braketing, but even when I don't have those chosen, I still get a grey-out HDR. The "?" says the HDR option is "not available at current settings ... or state"... what settings and/or state is causing that?

    Life is like a camera
    Focus on what is important
    Develop from the negatives
    And if things don't work out
    Take another shot.

    I had already tried that and just tried it again...no luck, no change.

    You must have JPEG or JPEG/RAW enable. You must also have bracketing turned off.

    You must be in JPEG or NEF/JPEG. Also, bracketing must be off.

    There is another thread about this where the answers are outlined.

    These 2 shot HDR wannabee Jpeg only features are such a waste!
