    Is Ver4 availabale to download again, I know the backdoor got shut, but I havent got a email or anything about upgrades? Don so a 0.3 step and a 0.7 step would = a full 1 step, so a bracket of 3 shots at 0.3 and a bracket of 3 at 0.7 steps would give you 6 shots to choose from and or layer for a overall of 1 woud that work? be way to complex? and I guess motion blur and positional shift would ruin it. just trying to get my head around some HDR concepts.

    Well, you need to know that there are two new +/- 2EV settings, in bracketing (with the new version), one is "single-shot" and the other is "continuous", where you hold down the release (you do use a wired release on your tripod shots, right? RIGHT?)

    Anyway, you hold down the shutter-release button and it fires off three shots, one right after the other, under ... yep, in under 1-second ... unless your base shutter-speed is much slower. In the case of the "moonshot", you have a 1/250th shot, a 1/1000th shot and finally the 1/60th. All under 1 second. RIGHT?

    It really does the job ... as witnessed by my submitted initial image.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    They work

    my first one broke after like a month.... found out when I was setting up for fireworks, which sucked!

    my second one, the plug was backwards, so I had to cut a notch to make it correct and fit, and now it doesn't focus half way (not that I can tell), but does take the picture. So in manual focus it's not a problem for astro pics, and for regular pictures, I use the hand or eye start AF to focus it and then snap away!

    I got the same brand, but on ebay.
