  • James, thank you for your reply! I don't quite understand though why Ricoh did not implement a fully e-shutter in Live View as well (supposing that it is fully electronic in PS mode). Also, it is ...
  • Created question thread K-1, EFCS or fully E-shutter?
    I searched quite a lot, but it is not clear if the "e-shutter" in the K-1 is fully electronic (both curtains) or EFCS (first curtain electronic - second mechanical). Pentax/Ricoh refers to it as ...
  • Hi Jan, yes, I move focus for each shot. Focus stacking is the only way to get DOF and resolution at the same time when working at high magnification, avoiding to a large extent the devastating ...
  • Gotcha. Yes, that's why I bought the SDQ and I am pretty happy with the resolution and detail I get. Here is a test stack at 7.5X, same target as in the shutter shock test in this thread: I quess I ...
  • Shawn, processing time is not a problem, the issue is the in-studio/shooting time. -Macrero
  • There are no "adjustments" between shots, I just take a "step" (that takes nothing... 1 sec? ) and shoot again and again and again... 4 seconds x 200 shots = 13 minutes. It may not seem that much ...
  • Nothing is really stopping me, but I find it much more convenient to work with continuous light. It is easier to adjust the intensity and incidence of light, difusing, etc. Also, stacking is harsh ...
  • Lol, actually SPP is the least of my problems. It's not the slowest RAW development software I used. Also, stacks are rendered in batches, so I spend little time adjusting a single frame and I ...
  • Thanks all for your comments. I replied at least 3-4 times, that was more than 24 hours ago, but my messages are still not showing. I will wait a tad more and gonna try to retype all... Not sure ...
  • Hi Mike, yep, flash(es) is one of the 2 solutions for the problem. The thing is that I am "stacking", I take 100-200 or more shots per a single stacked picture. I also make a lot of ...
  • Hi Paul, I work in studio with a tabletop setup, that is micro rail - bellows - camera + lens. I tried an ole days trick, I added weight to the camera mounting a couple of lead ingots (400 gr ...
  • Thank you, Scott! Test shots are at 7.5X and at such magnifications the shutter shock impact is just dreadfull. With a "conventional" macro lens at up to 1X impact will not be that huge, but it ...
  • Created discussion thread What a shame Sigma...
    A bit of background: I am a long time macro photographer. For some years now I've been working mostly in studio at higher magnifications. Back in the day I used a Sigma SD for field macro and I ...
