Shot on a super sturdy tripod, Nikon Z7, VR/IBIS = OFF, Z 24-70 2.8 S @ f/8, @ 24mm. NEF (0, -2, +2 stops) directly loaded into "New HDR merge", Auto align images set to Perspective, no noise reduction, Tone Map unchecked, Auto remove ghost: tried both, no difference, this is kinda not aligned:

I say thank you for forwarding to R&D - glad I could help.

FYC: I have the same/similar issue when using uncompresse ARW from a Sony 9M2 (24 megapixel, FE 24-105 f/4 G OSS, no tripod, 5 images 0, -2, -1, +1, +2) it's the same thing - but only if working on raw files: shifted alinement, + heavy chromatic aberration. If I export first to jpg (usually with Capture One (1)) and stack the jpgs, it's fine.

The Z7 has 46 megapixel.

(1) besides: please get in contact with C1 and help them to implement native support of .afphoto

Hi @Roland Rick,
Do you mind uploading the uncompressed ARW source files from the Sony 9M2 which are giving you the same issues using the same upload link please? They could be helpful to test against the new/revised code eventually. Thanks for your support.

@MEB, the ARW are also uploaded as well as the sooc jpgs. Keen on your results. FYC: the ARW protect of course much more details, specially in the highlights. That's how I detected this: first I used the jpgs of the Sony to do the HDR merge and after sending the merge result into Tone Mapping persona, I wasn't satisfied with the highlights. So, I did the same with the ARW, highlights OK, but chromatic aberration. In opposite to the NEF, the ARW are shot handheld, OSS and IBIS on and the image alignment looks to my opinion better. This is possibly because the 9M2 has 24 megapixel, where the Z7 has 46. However, the Z glass is superb, the Z 24-70 2.8 S anyway.

Hi @MEB, have the ARWs also been properly uploaded to the link you provided? Uploading the NEF I got a confirmation mail from the dropbox system, no such so after uploading the ARWs (already converted to dng, I also uploaded the JPGs sooc).

Forget the question above, just realised the 2nd Dropbox info I got in German instead of English, so searching for "upload" in my mailbox couldn't find it ("hochgeladen" in German).

Hi @Roland Rick,
Sorry the delay getting back to you (i didn't work last Friday). Yes, I have received both the DNG and JPG files, thank you. I've added them to the original report as well as some comparison tests I've done showing the output/issues. Thanks for your support. Much appreciated.
