HDR 4 software package from Franzis

As a ‘Pentax User’ newsletter reader, I came across Franzis, a German publishing and software company, who have been in existence since the early nineties.

Franzis produce a range of software packages for the photographer, but not being familiar with this company I researched online reviews. All were favourable, but one posted by the chairperson of the Brighton and Hove branch of the Royal Photographic Society, recommended a package called HDR 4, which was discounted from £60.49 to £24.95.
