Depending on the image content, the three methods might work with varying degrees of success. The manual explains clearly when to consider using one or the others. So far, the images I've captured are a best fit with Method B at least according to my understanding of the information in the manual.Try them all on the same stack.
No.Do you see any differences when you examine all areas of the full-size files at 100%?
I can't believe you stole my kind of mistake!I had the in-focus highlight set to show up yellow, and that's the color of the blossom .
I can't tell any difference Jim.This stack was made with only six images, all focused manually with my 55/3.5 AIS micro on the Z 6. I decided to try all three methods of Helicon Focus to see if I could detect a difference. If you see a difference please point it out as I don't.
Thanks Mike. Good idea!Nice composition and light, Walter.
Take a very big spray bottle!
If your weather is like ours you will probably have wind and subfreezing temperatures to complicate your picture taking.Thanks Mike. Good idea!
If I do stop again tomorrow I will use Step Width 1. I noticed while inspecting the individual images that there were areas that were not quite sharp enough. I could tell that focusing stepped just across them leaving them just a tad soft.
You are right Jim. Forecast for 34º overnight and rain, followed by winds tomorrow. Could be a chilly morning. Fortunately this picture should take all of 5 mins to capture so my exposure to the elements will be brief.If your weather is like ours you will probably have wind and subfreezing temperatures to complicate your picture taking.
