Camera rail translation v. focus ring

Unread post by jedlovec » 18.05.2018 06:54

For my Canon 65 mm macro lens focus is achieved by translating the camera. The 'focus' ring merely changes the magnification. So would it be best to create the stack by translating the camera?

And, in general, what would be best, adjusting the focus or translating the camera to generate the image stack?

The best solution depends on the objects you shoot. Please see discussions in forum on these topics:
