Can you post some examples including the different settings? (natural, weak, strong, etc)

Thanks!

I've worked with the HDR function a little more, and I now think it is actually useful.

My earlier mistake was not setting the ISO high enough and/or the aperture wide enough for the camera to choose fast enough shutter speeds for the overexposed image. The result was a softness not produced by the alignment process, but rather from some minor camera movement.

Try it out. My experience is that the "natural" setting is a little too natural and is often indistinguishable from the original middle exposure.
