HDR must match multiple pictures exactly. Some cameras need to be tripod mounted to do this adequately. I suspect others do a much better job of matching hand-held HDR image sets, and stitching hand-held panoramas. How does the Olympus TG-820 perform for hand-held HDR?

I just broke my digital camera and it was stylus 725 sw which was waterproof and shock proof. It was useful for me. Im thinking to get tough 8-20 but I don't how useful is that. Let me know if you have any idea

Olympus TG-820 can take 3D photos. 
Please check SCN mode before HDR option.
