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

I can use both successfully. It turns out that to get it to work you need to do things in order. 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.

Re: d7200 and video

I just gave it a try, and had no problem, though it insisted on saving on the SD card, rather than to the computer.

Re: Helicon Remote + Stackshot Rotary Table

I would be very interested in this and to extend the control to 2 axes of rotation, so I would need to control at least two stepper motors and the camera. I would like to use the combination to created focus-stacked files to use in Agisoft's 3D rendering software. Without the computer controlling th...

Re: Some slices rotated

As a follow up. As Stas suggested, turning off the Orientation Sensor worked. The reason it was happening is that when the camera is pointing straight down for copy stand work, the sensor gets disoriented.
