ZS70 In Camera Focus Stack Works

I've never tried this before, but I may need it, so it seemed wise to try before need.

Pretty typical--near focus is soft (fabric, end bauble), central focus (bauble) is sharp, far focus (boxes) is soft.

Stacked image has most areas in focus. The central image (bauble) is less sharp by a small amount.

Conclusion: Given the limitations of Panasonic's 4K fumbly-diddles, it works.

Note that this much processing locked up my ZS70's mouse-powered processor twice before getting the final image. This may be a problem with this particular camera. I got it for roughly half price from Amazon Warehouse. There were no visible wounds. It's possible it was sent back because the 4K functions didn't work well. I know ZS80s don't suffer from this hangup.
