Re: Focus steps too big - EOS 750D & EFS 18-135 mm STM

Have you done the essential calibration first?

Re: Helicon Focus or Zerene Stacker, which is better?

To me Helicon Focus is very straightforward to use and does the job well so I haven't bothered trying Zerene.

Re: updates

Thank you Catherine, I have now updated. It would be really nice if the Config App had a version number (the firmware has this already I see). Then it would be quick to see at a glance whether we have the latest version.

Re: Near and far point - shifting!

I have the Tamron 90mm macro (F004) and it works fine - make sure the Focus Limit Switch is set to "full" ?

updates

Has there ever been any firmware updates for the Tube or any App updates since first launch?
I ask because I cannot see any version numbers & I bought mine very early on.

latest version

I had Helicon Remote 3.9.7W (registered) When I click on "check for updates" it reported my software was up to date. However 3.9.8W was available on your website so I installed it. So the message in 3.9.7 was incorrect, which is a pity as it is a pain to not be able to trust it and have to do a manu...

Re: Fast shooting

Stas, this question arises time & time again and you have said more than once that it is the remote camera operation not your software that limits the max rate of shooting. Could I suggest that you make it clear on the website that this is the case, and what typical shooting speed can be expected? L...

Re: Issues with Tamron 90 macro

Since there are several Tamron 90mm Macro lenses, just to clarify that mine (that worked perfectly) is the f 004. The later version is the f 017.

Re: Issues with Tamron 90 macro

I don't know which version of Tamron 90mm macro has problems but I have used the 1:1 Macro SP USD Di and it has always worked flawlessly with my D610 and D750 with Remote & with FB Tube

Re: D810 Wireless hardware

Why not use a USB cable (with android/windows)? More reliable than WiFi anyway.

Re: set up for Nikon D500

As Stas says the Remote App lets you work remotely, set the near & far points of the stack and many other options. It can also be used as a sound and movement trigger and and it is a pity that these aren't well documented in the help. The FBTube is a 12/13mm extension tube so your max. focus distanc...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

The MPE65 is manual focus and would need a focus rail, but yes the Canon EF 100mm should work fine.

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Do you get the same issues with Canon lenses? I'm not saying that this the case here but there have been focus issues with Sigma lenses for years. They have to try to reverse engineer all the focusing data.

FB Tube IR signal transfer

A quick question Stas, when we transfer data to the FB tube there are 12 sets of transfers. Is it really necessary to ensure all 12 transfers are received or is there some repetition in the transmission maybe for a safety margin. Is just one set enough?
Many thanks.
