Re: Nikon 7200 problem

Please reproduce the problem and submit a bug report (menu -> Help -> Report a bug). By the way, did you test 5300 and 7200 it with the same lens or different ones? Did you make sure all the focus mode settings and hardware swicthes are set to AF (or AF-S if there's more than one AF option)? Okay S...

Nikon 7200 problem

After upgrading from a Nikon D5300 to a 7200 I cannot get the focussing arrows to work. If I switch back to the 5300, all is fine. The camera settings are the same on both.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: 6.3 save to DNG not working on Mac

I only just got around to v6 for my Mac, and notice there is no option to save as a Photoshop file. Is this going to be addressed, or will the eventual fix for Nikon Raw/DNG be the solution?

Thanks

I do manual shots on a microscope, since I cannot drive the focussing. The stacks come out fine, be sure to make each step small enough that the focussed areas overlap.

Suddenly stopped focussing

I am using a Nikon D5300 105mm Macro lens connected to a MacBook Pro. Two days ago everything was working fine. Since then no new software or hardware has been added and the physical connections are unchanged. This morning, when I try a Focus stack, I get the following problem. I can use the focussi...

Rainbow scarab

I found this outside the kitchen yesterday. I had no idea such beetles even lived in Connecticut

Manual focussing

I am using a Nikon D5300, which loses all focussing and aperture control without a lens. I have used the 'show focussed' tool to manually change focus and create stacks with some success, though I am never certain if I have managed to get every layer included

Re: Best stacking method for protozoa

Thanks: interestingly each of the three methods is better in some parts of the image than others. However, Method C does seem to be the overall winner.

DOF lens correction factor

Is this unique for each lens, or would all lenses of the same type use the same correction factor? So, if I have a Nikon 105 macro lens, would all of them be the same? If yes, then maybe we could set up a list of the correction factor for most of the common lenses as a service to other users.

Best stacking method for protozoa

I am photography protozoa, which are basically transparent, and the resultant stacks are not as clear as I would like. Do any of you have experience with this, and do you haste any advice?

Many thanks

Thanks. At least I won't spend the next week figuring out what I was doing wrong.

Autofocus doesn't

While I normally use Stackshot, I decided to try focus stacking, to compare the results. After setting up, I click choose Autofocus, then click on the nearest point on the screen image. The camera briefly focusses on the chosen spot, then goes completely out of focus. Maybe I am missing a key step, ...
