Helicon Focus rocks!!!

Post by cybermystic » 20.02.2009 20:36

Just bought Helicon Focus a couple of days ago as I want to get into photomicrography. I have a very nice trinocular microscope on order which should do the job nicely. However I also have an old cheap stereo microscope which I dug out to have a quick look-see. Camera Canon 40D, hand held flash, 5-frames, and of course Helicon Focus. Subject is the eye area of a dragonfly larval case. To say I'm over the Moon with my very first lash-up attempt is a massive understatement!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Helicon Focus :D :D :D

Very nice indeed!

Judging from some of the other images I've seen, Helicon Focus seems to be able to make an even sharper image from sets where the focus is even more slightly changed between frames.

Can you easily change focus very very slightly with the microscope?

Thank you Noel, yes I can make very small focus changes, but you will also see from other posts that it is not always the best idea to use as many frames as possible (or so it seems).
