this looks interesting

The intervalometer function in particular looks like it is a winner; automating the transition from day to night smoothly is one of the banes of long timelapse. Otherwise, not too much there for me. Not really interested in bracketing or focus stacking functions, got that covered.
One of their claims makes me scratch my head...

There's no physical way around using NDs when you want very long exposures in daylight. Well, if you want a 1s exposure simulation when your minimum shutter speed is 1/100, you *could* stack 100 shots, and deal with the fact that smooth motion will be pretty chopped up by the inter-shot delay. Or you could slap on the ND and get a better result in a single shot. I'll take the ND please.

I don't know about this software, but couldn't you get long exposures if there was a way to set the sensor ISO to 5 or so?

Yep. Or ISO 1 in my example.
Even the most capable cameras out there right now usually bottom out at ISO 50, and this is a hardware limitation. Even ISO 50 is a compromise; it reduces DR because it is really just using the headroom in the RAW data.

Well I thought a discussion on football was strange. Arsenal the " Gunners " have always been top of the league in British football
