    The results are far better. It's more work, but can be automated, though not cheap. I bought a rail from www.wemacro and was still able to use the orangemonkie foldio 360 in turntable mode to incre...

    I've uploaded my first test with Focus Stacking to sketchfab. I had to get the file under 50mb to uplaod, so it's quite decimated. https://sketchfab.com/mode…/409b28fed6c74880b4bfe5d8d54d17cf Also ...

    Sorry Götz, you're right, it's the T2I never use RAW for photogrammetry. I use an Orangemonkie Foldio360 Turntable, which triggers the shutter every few seconds, for 48 photos per 360, so the buffe...

    and you're shooting in a light tent? neutral background? I'm using the Foldio3 tent with extra halo LED strips. I've not had to use control points at all. Sounds like stacking is a lot of hassle.I'...

    Hi Steven, Does the A7rIII do focus bracketing? the rII doesn't and the Sony app is useless. Are you creating your stacks manually?I'm using a turntable from orangemonkie called the Foldio360, so i...
