The article describes a procedure to build a focus stacking for the EOS cameras. Only a few simple and basic instructions are required to accomplish the project. Read through to know more about this.
Focus stacking assistant is being controlled by three buttons. The first one is used for moving the focus towards the camera. The second button is used for moving the focus away from the camera and the third button would start the shooting sequence. Long press on focus move button sets “near” of “far” points. After both the points are set, shooting sequence can be run.
When the Focus Stacking Assistant is connected to the camera, it allows camera buttons to function as usual. For example, camera LCD can be turned on and zoom area can be moved to the area of interest and then zoomed in order to help focusing. The Shooting mode, and aperture/shutter speed/ISO can also be modified.
The project has been tested over the Canon 5D Mark II and XSi camera and it should also work without any issue for any Canon EOS camera (DSLR Cameras) with the LiveView functionality.
