Focus Stacking

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, a simple question for You... How do You do that... A7 series doesn't have any menu inside the software that allow to do that... Which sw, app or external tools might I to use?

My request is to have a feature like "focus shift" by Nikon, in order to simplify my daily work with macro photography... Could Sony add this feature inside the A7 sw ?

Someone has my same problem or is in the my same situation?

 

Thank You in advance!

A.

Hi - I currently go manual focus, zoom into the image preview and use the focus peaking to try and find the areas in focus. I then shift the focus a tiny amount manually and repeat. Alternatively, I use my macro focus rail I pruchased for the job.

I usually just use photoshop to combine, but find it doesn't do some stacks properly. Today I tried a trial version of Zerene Stacker and it did quite a decent job. Not sure if I would pay money for Zerene or just buy Helicon Focus.

 

HTH...

Thank You for Your answer... Of course I agree with You... I tried Helicon a couple of days ago, but Ps works definitely better.
