for HDR photography, i would not recommend lightroom. lightroom is intended for small corrections. photosop has more options if you are really in post processing. don't get me wrong. i love lightroom and i'm not making a lot of adjustment with regards to my photos. in connection to HDR photography, Photomatix is so far one of the best softwares. but if you want to try the new software intended for HDR (and really natural looking, not overly done HDR) i would suggest you try GREAT PHOTO. it is a new software and as i was looking to some of their samples, i was thinking of buying it. happy shooting :))

I am using Luminance HDR to create HDR photos. So far, it works well for me. It is free!!!

i don't use photomatix... i do all my post productions with photoshop or lightroom... i think that photoshoop is enough with it... i am not really into HDR but i did try it once in a while... but i think its a good one if you combine it with landscape photography... it does give outstanding results.

Hi, As far as I know, Photomatix is a popular software used for HDR photography. Yes, you have to buy it. But, some people can use PhotoShop to create HDR photos as well. :) As for camera, DSRL camera would be the best to capture HDR photography. There are some digital cameras that have integrated HDR features in which you can directly get HDR photos without processing it using Photomatix software. It depends on how you want to capture HDR photos. If you want more control in terms of editing, you can use DSLR and photomatix software (or Photoshop).If you want to get HDR photos fast without mush editing, you can use digital cameras with HDR function.
