In those cases, you have to take your HDR exposure series manually, but doing so is a daunting task for many photographers. In this tutorial, I describe a manual HDR bracketing technique that helps you get the perfect exposure series for every conceivable scene. It is simple and reliable, and you don't need any math that goes beyond counting to three.

Semi-Autobracketing for HDR - How to Extend Your Exposure Bracketing Series

With a bit of practice, you won't notice a difference to series shot with more expensive cameras.
