In this tutorial the author shows how to shoot HDR still photographs using the Canon 550D.

He shows the settings he uses in camera step by step, using aperture priority and using built in bracketing, the camera takes 3 photos in rapid succession, one normal, one lighter and one darker.  

The scene he is shooting is typically tough to shoot, he's shooting inside a room into a very bright window, normally you either get the outside exposed properly then the interior will be black, or if you expose the inside room properly you'd then blow at the outside.

He uses Lightroom to adjust the images before processing them as HDR using PhotoMatrix PRO.

It's not your camera, it's your lens, especially if you're using the kit lens.
