Last one is decent.
For black cars should use bracketing
Yeah, what he said....
Bracketing is taking three pics for every shot. One slightly over exposed (as per your cameras meter) and one dead on and one under exposed.
I believe for black cars this is becaue it is hard to meter off the black and one of the three will be right. You can also use it to combine exposures to get proper exposue in both the highlights and shadows.
Oh. How do you combine the 3 to get 1 awesome pic?
nice point and shoot pictures
Layer them on top of each other.... and mask out. There are tons of tutorials on it....look for "combining multiple exposures tutorial" or something like that.
Awesome, thanks. Reason I was curious is because I also own a black car that I enjoy taking pictures of.
Is that the same thing as shooting an image in RAW format??
I don't have RAW as an option on my camera.

That's part of why I was wondering as a lot of cameras do not have the RAW option.
Um...RAW images have a larger dynamic range than a normal jpeg but if you shoot 3 bracketed RAW images then you get a ton of dynamic range.
So no it is not the same as a RAW image ...it is in fact a technique which could be used with either RAW or jpeg.
