Re: Help - D500 using iPAD and USB not working

Thanks Catherin. With you help I bought an Android tablet and use USB. Works fine. Now I need to work an the adjustment factor for the number of steps. Using 1 with a D500 and Nikon 60mm Macro lens is not fine enough. I will try using the DOF calculator but may also just use .5 to get smaller steps....

Nikon Step Size

Is there a way in increase the number of steps for stacking with a Nikon D500? I find the current step size to great for a super sharp stacked image. Close but no cigar.

Thanks

Helicon Remote - WeMacro - Rail Speed

I have not discovered how to make the rail move faster when setting the Near and the Far limits (A & B) using the software in evaluation mode.
It is too slow to use in the field since I bought the WeMacro for its battery operated field capability.
Any help appreciated.

Re: WeMacro Rail - Nikon D500 - MAC

Thanks Mike
The only unresolved issue is focus peaking. Just curious if that only works if I use RAW/NEF versus small jpeg?

Re: Support for Wemacro Rail

I hope you support the WeMacro rail. I use it along with the Helicon FB Tube for field photography. Both devices work well, complimenting each other.
