OM-D E-M1′s new HDR (High Dynamic Range) Shooting Mode will fire and bracket four shots in rapid succession with a single shutter press. The images are then aligned,  merged and processed automatically, in camera. As such, no tripod is necessary and it will work hand-held as shown below. There is also an extended mode which can bracket in 12 EV range.
