I'm using a Canon EOS T2i with a Tamron 90 mm macro lens. I have tried using Auto Focus to set the nearest position, and the arrows to set the farthest point. I have also tried manual focus to set near and far points. I get the same numbers for interval/number of shots. When I set the number of shots and interval manually, and enter 25 shots, I can only enter 1 interval, so I get two shots, both focused in the middle of the image.
In short, nothing I have tried works. The camera just does not respond to take the stepped sequence of focal planes.
