I agree with most of your review.

This is just my five cents

It is very easy to produce natural looking HDRs (much easier than in many other programs I have tried).

The automatic deghosting and merging is quite effective and there is a neat trick from Unified Color - to set the preferred layer to a somewhat darker image than the neutral image. There is often more detail visible in a darker image.

Some small glitches. I often want to save the result in jpg and OpenEXR formats and would like to set my preferred formats as defaults. As it is HDR Expose defaults are almost always wrong for me.

HDR Expose 3 is my preferred HDR program.

<a >HDRcamera</a> It is possible that normal photos may be lot harper than HDR photos as the camera is subject to many movements which causes softness in the image.

I started using HDR Expose a few months ago and really like their merge and deghosting.  However, I have noticed that on most final TIFFs, there is excessive noise and banding. This is true even for original files at 200 to 400 ISO.  I have sent a message to them concerning this problem, but I have never received a reply.  I have stopped using the program because of this problem.
