Welcome to Episode 12. The Fotobug guys begin their new series on the HDR shootout which will involve comparing four different HDR software packages: Photoshop CS5, Photomatix, HDR Expose, and HDR Efex. The first contender is Adobe Photoshop CS5. the "rules" are to process a 3 image HDR sequence as quickly as possible and as realistic as possible. A second sequence will test the programs' ability to handle ghosting. The final images will be posted at on the Fotobug Facebook page along with the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!!
The guys also discuss the Eye-Fi wireless SDHC card and the world's largest light painting - the entire city of Toledo, Spain!
