Amazing focus (1)

nahdude812 (88157) | more than 5 years ago | (#28842997)

The focus stacking is really seamless; how did you bracket the focal point? Manually dialing the focus ring?

Makes my reverse lens macro work [flickr.com] look like junk =).

Yeah, I just stuck the camera and macro lens on a focusing rail and decremented the distance by .5mm at a time. Photoshop's focus stacking algorithm did all the rest of the work. Theoretically, it should work for your reversed lens macro approach as well...

It would also be interesting to see the photos that were eventually stacked to give better context to what Photoshop is doing.

Still and all, awesome pics!

I did an example of the stacked images as a gif for a previous post here [utah.edu]

I thought stacking only came in one type; the kind astronomers use to get clearer images through the atmosphere. Well, ok, and HDR. Didn't know there was a focus stacking at all. This is very cool.

Yeah, exposure stacking/dynamic range stacking and focus stacking... all the pieces are there for synthetic cameras. :-)

And thanks! I might do an animated gif of the frames this weekend if I can find some time.

Very nice (1)

Props on the pic and the work that went into it.

Thanks. Its actually pretty easy to do with the right equipment. Took me all of an hour to get it completed.

Ninety-six eyes (1)

Too many teardrops - for one heart - to be cryin'

That's Question Mark man!

Awesome! Inspired me to do it with my $300 digicam (1)

Com2Kid (142006) | more than 5 years ago | (#28860851)

So long story short, I installed chdk [wikia.com] on my $300 Canon digicam (SD880). I only get 1mm control over my focus, but hey considering I didn't pay anything extra, I am not going to complain! :)

The end result picture is on my blog [wordpress.com] .

Coool. With a point and shoot! (I love the SD880 by the way)

Totally offtopic, but... (1)

How are things going with the computational framework for mapping neural circuitry? Any cool follow-up work you or others are doing with the groundwork you've laid?

Re:Totally offtopic, but... (1)

BWJones (18351) | about 5 years ago | (#28906517)

Yeah, we are hoping to have a Science paper submitted in the next few weeks.... ;-)

Ah... well, I'll wait for the journal entry announcing it then!

(And hope I can understand it)
