Excuse for those that hate boring comparisons/tests, but I would like to share this one showing a simple comparison of one shot at f/16 vs. 3 shots focus stacked at f/8.
If you need the whole flower in focus, but no distracting background, focus stacking can be a solution.


Single shot vs. 3 focus stacked shots by labecoaves, on Flickr


D7000 + PN-11 tube + Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-S EDIF + tripod. ISO 160, 1 single shot at f/15 1/50s; 3 shots at f/8 1/250s. Of course this will need still subjects. The flower had just 1cm diameter.

I'll say that again! Spectacular! Reminds me of old Life Magazine photos.

Jose, thank you for the comparison. It's an excellent procedure when shooting subjects like this flower. This one turned out beautifully!

Apologies if this is not welcome in this thread for any reason, let me know and I'll delete, but I just acquired something of a grab bag of very clean MF glass this morning and I will probably be listing it for sale (am buy/sell member). Not sure however when I will have the time to test, photograph, and list them however, so if anyone has interest in these just PM me perhaps and I'll spend the time taking pics with and of that copy first or send you some more info

Nikon 200mm f/4 (love the built in hood)
Nikon 50mm f/1.8
Nikon 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5
Sigma 120-300mm f/5.6-6.3
Tokina 28mm f/2.8
Tokina tc 2.0
Koboron 28-200mm f/3.5-5.3
Nikon FM film body (oh, man that split prism is a blast from the past - wish my new bodies would do that!)

Happy New Year all!





Test shot with 200mm f/4, MFD, wide open. Looks nice!

A few more from the D600 + 24mm f/2.8 AI combo. Pretty much all shot at f/11 using the tripod. Took these a mile or two north of Sonoita AZ. There was 4" of snow over the whole area about 8 hours before this.

Winnipeg and the Red River is host to the longest skating trail in the world.

I walked along the river for a while yesterday on my way back from the store and caught a couple people (and a pooch) enjoying the mild (-20c with wind) weather.

Monty these 2 are very clever - I think I prefer the one with you out of focus - but I don't know.
