    Possibly not, but a/ it isn't hard, and b/ Canon do it.

    Yeah, add that to the list of things that they should just do.

    Has anybody used the focus stacking facility? It strikes me as pretty unfathomable.

    Thanks for that link Donald.

    My problem is that he didn't explain anything about the focus steps and the number of shots which is what I am finding unfathomable. It's all very well saying practice, practice, practice, but you could do 10,000 clicks and waste a week of your life trying to work out what they could have told us or at least given us a guide towards. I think Nikon should have given us a table of examples i.e. from a fairly two-dimensional butterfly at close range to a landscape shot including the same shots taken at different focal lengths. That would be better than nothing.

    @spraynpray Have you looked at the D850 Professional Technical Guide (Useful Features) that you can download from the D850 Product support page? It may have some of the information you are looking for and describes the functionality in a little more detail. I have used it and it does take a little bit of practice but once you get the hang of it is pretty amazing the images you can capture. I initial started using 100 shots, focus width of 5 and 00 for the shot interval that wasted a lot of time and shots learning the functionality. I switched to 20 and 30 shots instead of 100. I hope this helps.

    I have used the "focus shift" feature and it seems to work as described. I agree that the "stops" could have been more closely tied to the depth-of-field of the lens-and-f-stop in use. In fact, I will predict that in some future camera version the camera will consider lens, f-stop, and distance-to-nearest object to suggest a stops setting. AI is creeping into our cameras.

    Let me know if that guide helps.
  • spraynprayspraynpray Posts: 6,545Moderator
    Yes Vic, it is excellent thanks - although there is a glaring mistake in the tables for the focus shifting guide! Apart from that though, it is very good.

    Between you and Donald, I am sorted for info - many thanks.

    I tried the focus stack. My mistake was leaving the 105 2.8 macro at f4 vs f8 or f16.
    Photoshop failed at creating the stack. I got the trial version to Helicon and it did better but I'm not happy. It was a user error here but I was also randomly guessing how many steps and photos. I decided to not do anything with that set. Maybe I'll try flowers again once winters goes away.
