Hi out there
After I read about this photomatix I had to test it.
I have a CP5400 and FC-9.
So I did from each pano 3 shots. Dark, medium, light. Unfortunatly in the Aperture Mode I cant change the settings of the camera during one session. Thats what I actually try to do, in the same position, the 3 different states (dark, medium, light).
So I try to adjust the same positions on my manfrotto head. My pano head had has no 120 settings :((
After that I stiched the fotos with PW4. Then squeezed the 3 panos through photomatix. It works!! Well, I think I have to play arround with it to get better results. And maybe the results go better with 4 or 5 states (dark, m-dark, neutral m-light, light).
I really like it. Because of the overshooting light in the windows when its clear outside.
You can have a look at my first time experince with it.

Fazit: I will use photmatix
