Martin Isenburg has a good blog post on his rapidlasso blog with LAStools using the point clouds derived from dense matching aerial photographs.  Make note his example is on relatively flat terrain to derive the DTM, DSM, and 1m elevation contours.  More extreme changes in elevation will produce varied results.  It is always best to test to see expected results on different slopes.
