Yes, I recommend Photomatix Pro. You can find a coupon code for 15% off if you do a search.

I think here should be more steps after Photomatix. I always finish processing in Lightroom. The HDR process creates noise. I always do noise reduction, sharpen, adjust color, crop, and any other touch-up needed after Photomatix.

Whether the camera is adjusting aperture, ISO or shutter sheed for the brackets depends on what camera mode you are shooting in. I usually shoot brackets in Aperture Priority and the camera brackets using the shutter speed. Allowing the camera to bracket with the aperture may affect depth of field from one shot to another. That could get interesting, and may cause problems with alignment.

Thanks, Dave
