about Stackshot

Unread postby jimh12345 » 02.03.2018 18:30

I'm using Helicon Focus with a Sony and I want to automate the process somehow. I know Helicon oesn't support Sony, apparently because Sony's API doesn't include focus control. A bit of research turns up Stackshot (and a couple of cheaper competitors), which works by moving the camera on a rail. It's not exactly clear if Stackshot supports Sony, but I think they do, if you buy a $40 cable.

So is that what other Sony users are doing? Or is there a better solution?

I can't say what other Sony users are doing, but yes, that should work. Helicon Remote does support this mode of operation with Stackshot and Wemacro.
