Re: Lens focus stuck on f32

Yes the Tube sits behind the lens and controls it, not the camera, so you will need a lens with built in motor. Helicon Remote will work in this case though.

Re: Venus optics Laowa lenses

If the lens is manual focus only then there can be no way for any software or hardware to adjust it in camera. But you could use a focus rail with a stepper motor (eg stackshot or Wemacro rail) controlled by Helicon Remote.

Have you done the essential calibration first?

Re: Helicon Focus or Zerene Stacker, which is better?

To me Helicon Focus is very straightforward to use and does the job well so I haven't bothered trying Zerene.

Re: updates

Thank you Catherine, I have now updated. It would be really nice if the Config App had a version number (the firmware has this already I see). Then it would be quick to see at a glance whether we have the latest version.

Re: Near and far point - shifting!

I have the Tamron 90mm macro (F004) and it works fine - make sure the Focus Limit Switch is set to "full" ?

updates

Has there ever been any firmware updates for the Tube or any App updates since first launch?
I ask because I cannot see any version numbers & I bought mine very early on.

latest version

I had Helicon Remote 3.9.7W (registered) When I click on "check for updates" it reported my software was up to date. However 3.9.8W was available on your website so I installed it. So the message in 3.9.7 was incorrect, which is a pity as it is a pain to not be able to trust it and have to do a manu...

Re: Fast shooting

Stas, this question arises time & time again and you have said more than once that it is the remote camera operation not your software that limits the max rate of shooting. Could I suggest that you make it clear on the website that this is the case, and what typical shooting speed can be expected? L...

Re: Issues with Tamron 90 macro

Since there are several Tamron 90mm Macro lenses, just to clarify that mine (that worked perfectly) is the f 004. The later version is the f 017.

Re: Issues with Tamron 90 macro

I don't know which version of Tamron 90mm macro has problems but I have used the 1:1 Macro SP USD Di and it has always worked flawlessly with my D610 and D750 with Remote & with FB Tube

Re: D810 Wireless hardware

Why not use a USB cable (with android/windows)? More reliable than WiFi anyway.

Re: set up for Nikon D500

As Stas says the Remote App lets you work remotely, set the near & far points of the stack and many other options. It can also be used as a sound and movement trigger and and it is a pity that these aren't well documented in the help. The FBTube is a 12/13mm extension tube so your max. focus distanc...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

The MPE65 is manual focus and would need a focus rail, but yes the Canon EF 100mm should work fine.
