p.1 #1 · Fenix TK 41 (flashlight)


So I bought this killer flashlight and before it got all bunged up from bouncing around my truck, I decided to document it in my own peculiar style. Since there's no board here specifically for product photos, I guess this will have to do.

A simple shot with a Canon 24mm TS-E II, shot at f/11, but with 39 focus slices merged in Helicon and maybe a bit of post. Curiously, even though the 24 T/S has virtually no distortion in normal architectural use, there was a weird distortion that appeared right in the area of heel end of of the light. Most likely caused by the movement of the floating elements and pretty easy to Liquefy away, but interesting to see nevertheless.




  24mm    f/11.0    1/2s    100 ISO    0.0 EV

Peter- This kind of photography is another of the many kinds about which I know absolutely nothing. But occasionally my board wanderings land on such things, and I want to comment.
In the absence of anything intelligent to say... how about the sincere but always trite-sounding "nice shot?"
Or the ultimate compliment: The Peanut Gallery thinks this is a swell picture.

Nice work - I find the ts-e's start to exhibit distortion when used at close distances...

That's a very nice flash light and a well done shot.

I've never been able to get my head round doing focus stacking (in practise); I take it the software does all the work?

The software does most of the work, but you have to clean up where it can't intelligently figure out what to do - like what to do with larger blur radii from a closer focus point obstructing what is behind. On a subject like this, Helicon worked quite well overall, with just a bit of clean up at some of the edges but I've done other stacks where the whole thing just fell apart and I had to go full manual and just paint everything in on individual layers in Ps. Just depends on the image and the resolution, it seems.

Eric - This is my second Fenix and this one really rocks. On the brightest "turbo" setting, it's almost as bright as my Hella high beams. Pretty crazy for something the size on an old Ray-O-Vac 2 D cell sized light. This one runs on 8 AA's, which a big plus as well.
