    Tom, I went to your Austria GigaPan HDR link and was most surprised and left a comment there concerning you and Kilgore. I may want to trade my SX110 for your G10 and for Kilgore's Sony H9, I may think about giving up my Leica if I get his Beta robot too ... but I'm still thinking about it :)

    David, if your camera will do auto-bracketing on motor drive, the taking of the pictures is easy. You want to take a bracket of at least three pictures (ideally 2 stops apart) in quick succession. My beloved Canon G10 only does this on aperture-priority, not manual mode. Thus my HDR pano www.gigapan.org/gigapans/61014/ was done manually. Photomatix will batch-process the images the same way, but the tone-mapping process introduces variation from photo to photo. You'll probably need to do some tonal matching afterwards. Tom

    The process is called "tone-mapping". There are a number ways of doing this, each with its own type of effect. As to "simple", if you are talking about single photos then the answer is "Yes, try Photomatix" but this program isn't designed to work with gigapans and if you try using PM on a gigapan you expose loads of bugs in the software so it is not straightforward at all.

    How do you do this post-processing? Is it simple for people like me?
