"EasyHDR Hmmmmmmm seems like they have made some improvements." Mark made this comment yesterday and it is a timely reminder to Camels to be aware of software updates. The recent EasyHDR update to version 3.6 is more than just a few twaeks. Image alignment and deghosting have both been significantly improved.

EasyHDR 3.6 default setting, auto-deghosting

Good colours, good shadow detail and good deghosting.

Photomatix 5 Contrast Optimizer setting, auto-deghosting

Good alignment and deghosting but a contrasty result with poor shadow detail.

SNS-HDR 1.x beta default setting

Excellent colour rendering and good shadow detail but poor alignment / deghosting.

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it is like a disease.

Software: Too numerous to list but my most used utility is ShiftN for perspective correction

Gear: Canon G12, no tripod, no lenses, no flash, no remote, no cases or bags!

SNS sure looks bad here. Some of it must be the lack of deghosting, or good deghosting anyway...

Deghosting is the Achilles heel of SNS-HDR. EasyHDR and Photomatix both do a better job.

When it comes to aligning hand-held image sets, SNS-HDR does an acceptable job but, again, EasyHDR and Photomatix are better.
