Not all manufacturers require the stacking to be done afterward using a computer. As you know, Olympus will stack in-camera up to 15 focus-bracketed images. If you want to focus bracket more than 15 images using an Olypmus camera, than the stacking must be done afterward in a computer. If you limit the Olympus bracketing to 15 or fewer images, you can configure the camera to stack them and if you don't like the result, you can later user a computer to stack them. Nikon has no built-in focus stacking, so their focus-bracketed images, regardless of the number of them, must be stacked afterward using a computer.Focus Bracketing is the same as Nikon's Focus Shift. Both of those require the use of a computer to do the Focus Stacking afterwards.
