Outdoors, yes. Indoors, a lot of shots have weird color problems, particularly with fluorescent lighting. Often, it doesn't try to auto white balance incandescent shots.

Some people have to work. I chose to work.

There is still exposure time. Indoors, or at dawn/dusk, you're going to need some way to hold it steady. A shot that would be 1/100 for a single frame, might be comprised of 1/50, 1/100 and 1/200, for combined exposure time of about 1/28 in HDR. Even if they do some sort of trickery where they don't blank the sensor and take a copy of the sensor image at certain points (I'm not sure this is feasible, just conjecture), or combine four 1/200 shots, that would still add up to a 1/50 exposure, a lot more room for shake.

I don't get it either, I cleaned up a lot of unnecessary profanity and attacks. If people want to rack up infractions, then there they go, there's plenty to go around.
