Tamron 45mm F1.8 on Nikon Z7 focus stacked 1:1 images
3

Yesterday evening I went into the garden with my tripod and a very, very sharp "standard" lens (Tamron 45mmF1.8) to test the "focus stacking" built into my camera body. What it does is take a number of shots (completely silent using the electronic shutter) and between each shot it changes the focus just a little bit. In these examples I have stacked about 10 shots, but I did not select them all for stacking in Photoshop in the first image. So, what is the big deal? Well, especially in the last image shot at F2.8 you get a nice, out of focus effect on the background, but at the same time I have all the flowers in focus. With just 1 shot I would only have 1 flower in focus. Magic! Modern phones can do something similar, but not quite, and the resolution and colors will never match this camera, that has a huge sensor compared to a phone. There was very tiny movement of the flowers once in a while, so the stacking is not perfect, l if you look close enough.
