What is different about this instead of just setting the camera up to do it? Sorry, I haven’t don’t very much stacking but would like to do more in the future...

The biggest benefit is doing focus stacking while working tethered. Accessing (touching) any control on the camera and/or lens will risk moving it and throwing shooting sequences out of register so when they' stacked in layers in Photoshop they will need to be realigned and hope they still fit exactly. The built in focus stacking option is also not yet accessible (afaik) in Nikon Camera Control 2 utility nor other tethering software.

Note that Helicon Remote Beta version from Helicon Soft now fully supports the Z6, Z6 II, Z7, Z7 II, Z507.
