Re: Forcing new folder

I see. Didn't think the remote shutter release from Stackshot would work while USB remote control is active. Until we add support for multiple stepper devices so that everything could be done from Remote, the only thing I can think of is to add pause between stacks in Stackshot settings (if at all ...

Dust map files

I have two questions.

Does the Dust Map file have to be same file type as the stack files?
Can the Dust Map file be NEF? It doesn't seem to recognize them.

Stacks all overexposed

When I run a stack through Focus, the final image is very much overexposed, even though the individual shots are fine.The output looks the same no matter what setting I use in the creation of the stack. The attached single image is from a series shot at f5.6, 1/160 sec, ISO 100 RAW. The Focus settin...

Re: Forcing new folder

The movement is still all controlled by Stackshot, as is the shutter release. Remote is used to adjust the camera, and to determine where the images will be stored.

Forcing new folder

Ii don't know if this is possible, or if Helicon and Cognisys could work together to find a solution. I am using Stackshot3 to obtain a series of focus-stacked files. The subject is photographed with a 40 image series, it then rotates 10 degrees and another stack is shot. This continues until a full...

Re: Moving camera vs lens focus change

There is an additional potential problem when moving the camera: if you are using a camera-mounted flash, the lighting will become more intense as you approach the subject. This can lead to over or underexposure, depending on where you chose to use as the image for adjusting exposure.

Choosing 'Leave on camera' under the Preferences/Image saving option will leave everything on your SD card.

Re: StackShot3x Support

Set the camera to remote trigger Then plug camera into computer Run Helicon Remote, set the destination folder Watching Live view in Remote I adjust the start and end points on Stackshot3 and also check ...

Re: d7200 and video

This was on a MacBook Air. Once I figured out how to start the recording from the Tools bar, it went very smoothly.
