Our Software
  • Copyright© Brian Valentine, stacked with Helicon Focus Helicon Focus

    Focus stacking software: a post-processing technique that extends the depth of field in your photographs.To use this technique, you take several images of the same scene, focusing your lens on a different part of the object for each shot. Then you can use Helicon Focus to blend all the sharp areas together and
    produce a completely sharp image.

  • Helicon Remote

    Tethered photography for Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras: automates focus (DoF) bracketing, which allows precise and uniform steps, advanced exposure bracketing and time-lapse shooting—even all these combined if necessary. Tethered photography makes focus stacking more accurate, reproducible, and higher quality than can be achieved with manual shots.

  • Helicon FB Tube

    Helicon FB Tube is an extension tube with integrated electronic microcontroller designed to enable automated focus bracketing in single or continuous shooting modes.
    Helicon FB Tube automatically shifts the focus by one step with each shot thus producing a stack of images of unlimited length that can be rendered into a fully-focused image.

  • Helicon 3D Viewer Helicon 3D Viewer

    View, manipulate and export 3D models generated by Helicon Focus, plus export parallel and cross-view stereo pairs, different types of anaglyph images, web animations, and even videos. With focus stacking and Helicon 3D Viewer you can add an extra dimension to your photography without much effort.

Reviews

"The software is surprisingly easy to use and produces stunning results with the default settings. Helicon Focus will also allow the power user to alter the output based on a number of settings."

Craig Lamson

"Without too much fuss Helicon focus has created an image more than a little impossible a few years ago. I have been a professional film-maker and photographer for more than twenty years and I have never been more impressed by a software."

Julian Brooks

Helicon Focus is a fantastic program from Helicon Soft that was originally designed for macro photography, but it can also be applied to other types of images, such as landscapes, gardens, still-life photography, and even architecture.
