What is focus stacking?
Do you remember that? Even if you approach very close to an object, is not the depth of field large enough to focus the entire object? If you like to shoot with scales of 1: 1 or above, you will reach the limits of optics faster than you would expect. The depth of field is only very low when shooting at these scales. It can not be compensated without limit by strong fading, because that reduces the detail of the entire image and light is not there enough.
This is finally over. The solution is:
Take a sharpening series – a Focus Stack! FOCUS projects 4 professional then merges all shots from 3 to 1000 levels of sharpness into a single image with unparalleled depth of field. The photographed object is now consistently sharp from front to back and all without effort and in a few seconds. You do not need to press any buttons or adjust the controls. So you get sharp macros fully automatically.
Macros like from the photo magazine, almost fully automatic!
FOCUS projects 4 knows no borders. With the 64-bit calculation, Focus Boost and the significance check, professional macro photographers have access to functions that were previously unavailable to any macro photographer. The trick: inexperienced macro photographers benefit not only from all the technical finesse, but also from the intuitive user guidance, which guarantees every user a quick introduction to the world of focus stacking.
