I bought Photomatix 5 years ago and from time to time I try new HDR software, I must say that in most cases I find it really difficult to come out with a photo which is not overdone. Especially with single photos. Luckily for single photos my old and faithful copy of Olympus Studio has an image filter from Apical Imaging that does wonders (I think it just applies different curves to different parts of the image, but it's automatic i.e. single click and a threshold slider).

On Microsoft releases Camera Codec Pack with RAW support article (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

kff: Why ?
- majority producers of cameras ignore universal RAW format DNG
and users choice ...
- Microsoft afraid Google's cloud computing activites ...

How it works?
No commment ... Is it integrated in the system? ... not

btw: I just found out Adobe already has a DNG codec (Labs site) so I really don't understand.

Not sure what you're trying to say here, but:

- The codecs are for the WIC framework so, starting with XP SP3, they should work in Windows Explorer (they work with my Windows 7 installation). I would say that's pretty much integrated with the system...

- About DNG support (and in general for other Codecs) I'm pretty sure they don't have unlimited development resources and have to prioritize as everyone else. I would say that a lot, if not most, consumers are simply ignoring DNG but I'm sure MS can draw better statistics from their side. Moreover, I'm not quite sure why Adobe is not developing a WIC coded in the first place if they really think DNG should be ubiquitous. Finally, they posted on the blog that they're already working on further codecs.

- Everyone is afraid about everyone else cloud at this point... MS, Google, Apple, you name it
