New to Helicon - Awesome product!

Unread postby Ski » 02.06.2012 22:55

Recent purchased the Helicon products based on reviews but once I used it, awesome. Really nice and very well put together. I love macro photography but my first doing stacking. Was easy and very intuitive. Attached a photo. Any suggestions or pointers. I used 6 frames, at f14, iso was at 125 and was at 1/30. I even tried one with HDR (6 Frames each), at 6 focus points and stacked them. I thought it came out pretty good. Love the filter. Puts a really nice touch at the end.

Great Job Helicon!

Thanks, very nice shot. Have you used Helicon Remote to automate shooting?

Not yet. Need to do a little reading first. Is any additional hardware required to get started?

Helicon Remote is able to directly control most of the modern Canon and Nikon DSLRs : http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconremote.html

In this case you only need a USB cable :)

Finally got in using Remote. Another awesome product. Haven't figured how to take it outdoors so I brought a flower in to try. Nice. I would have attached but the shot I guess is to large. Couldn't get it down to 256 unless I cropped it. Anyhow. Thanks. Love the product. Using filter daily on all my shots.
