Why focus at infinity?

Unread postby mjoconnell » 01.11.2011 14:14

The Helicon Focus Help says to focus the lens at infinity. I am shooting with a Macro lens and often use a bellows. Why do you recommend focusing at infinity as opposed to the closest focus setting?

Thanks -- Michael

This was written for microscopic work. If you focus with the macro lens you should focus on the object itself of course.
