Macro-photography is a fascinating sub-set of the photographic world. It brings to life detail that the human eye all too often misses. Unfortunately macro photographs often suffer from a narrow depth of field. How do photographers capture that stunning shot at high magnification and still have a great depth of field? Enter focus stacking. Focus stacking is the art of digitally combining a series of images with a narrow depth of field into a single image using a software program such as Zerene Stacker or Helicon Focus. Ideally each of these images is taken at a fixed distance interval.

Most macro photographers are familiar with using a macro rail to adjust the camera’s position relative to the subject of interest. These macro rails allow the distance to be roughly adjusted and provide a crude manual method for taking the series of shots required for focus stacking. Unfortunately there are several drawbacks. There is a lack of accuracy, reproducibility, speed, and precision. Additionally, sub-millimeter steps are difficult at best.

The solution? StackShot
StackShot is an electronically controlled macro-rail that coordinates the movement of the rail and the triggering of the camera. StackShot’s simple user-interface automates the entire image capturing process.

What are the advantages of Stackshot?
- Accuracy: Rail adjustment from 100mm to less than 0.01mm.
- Repeatability: An “automatic return” feature allows adjustments to the exposure settings between stacks captured with the same position and step size as the previous run.
- Speed: No more manually adjusting the rail position, pressing the shutter button, and hoping you didn’t bump the camera. Everything is automated and fast. This enables focus-stacking for critters that may not be willing to stay in the same position for very long.
- Completely Configurable: Just as with StopShot, virtually everything can be adjusted by the user (if they so desire). Trigger times, number of pictures per step (useful for HDR – imagine an HDR focus-stack!), maximum speed, ramp time, camera settle time, etc. It’s everything you would expect from Cognisys.
- Can be battery powered for use in the field. Check out our Li-Ion Battery Kit.
