about focus stacking

Focus stacking, also known as focal plane merging, z-stacking, or focus blending, is a digital image processing technique that combines multiple images captured at different focal distances to produce a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images. Focus stacking can be used in any situation where individual images have an undesirably shallow depth of field, with macro photography and optical microscopy being two typical examples.

There are various focus stacking software options available, and Adobe Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional also provides focus stacking capabilities.

What we do

Usually,when we take focus stacking pictures,screwing the macro rail or micrometer(used in high magnification) by hand are popular in focus stacking photograph.

But it’s hard to get precise step length and sometime it’s boring if there are a lot of steps.

WeMacro automatic focus stacking rail can free you from manual works with high efficiency.

Butterfly wing scale test
objective lens :Nikon BDplan 10X and 40X
camera:Sony NEX C3
10X: step length 6 micron
40X: step length 1 micron

Theoretical value when you set 1 micron as a step it will be 0.9375 micron.It will help in high magnification.
