Re: Have you ever used Focus Stacking?

Hi there,

I'm awaiting the arrival of some extension tubes and have been looking at buying some software,
Found 3 so far, bet there is many more,
1. Combine ZP
It is free but I had trouble working the program

2. Helicon Focus
Found it worked OK, easy to use, there is a 30 day free trial

3. Zerene Stacker

For me at least, worked the best, has a great editing option which will take me some time to grasp but IMHO, this was the best program, also 30 day trial

Does not have the flash screen graphics as Helicon but where "looks" fail, it makes up for it in the options and performance

Now, I know nothing about focus stackers and I'm just doing the research,
At this stage, I'm leaning towards Zerene Stacker

Will be interesting to see what other experienced guys are using
