Re: slow shooting interval

3 seconds is very fast, it's as fast as you can possibly get. The only way to get faster shooting is burst shooting, but you can't do focus bracketing or exposure bracketing in that mode.

Re: Canon T7I and Samsung s7

This behavior and problem are not typical, not something we heard of before or encountered ourselves.

Could you by any chance try it on a different camera body to see if the problem persists?
Or could you try a different device?

Re: Какой метод выбрать?

К сожалению, сложно дать универсальный совет - разные объекты, условия съемки. Что касается этих картинок, нужно смотреть стек, чтобы сказать, насколько можно улучшить результат. Если у вас есть желание и возможность, пришлите, пожалуйста, мы посмотрим.

Re: Tube use.

Yes, sure. The tube is just a tool to produce a stack. It's up to you how to process it.

Re: Calibrated depth map?

We recommend to use the depth map as a primary source. Data in obj file is formed based on the depth map. Even if the first and the last frames of the stack are out of focus, the depth map is still normalized by the number of files in the stack.

Re: The Helicon Focus FB d'ont works

Please try setting the lens to AF, Full, camera focusing mode to AF-one shot. Does it make any change? Also please try setting the step size to 150, just for a test: please set the step size in the app to 150 (don’t press Save), direction to infinity, and send the configuration to the tube, then foc...

Re: Helicon tube with Canon 180 mm f/3.5 Macro

Helicon FB Tube can only work with lenses with built-in motor, so this lens will not be compatible.
As for Helicon Remote, focus bracketing will not work, but the other functionality should work fine if the camera body is supported.

Re: Какой метод выбрать?

Что касается стереобазы, теоретически это должно улучшать карту глубин, но на практике в картах глубин появляются артефакты. И если для технических задач с ними можно смириться, то для художественной фотографии каждый такой артефакт будет резать глаз. Кроме того, съемка с двух точек усложняет процес...

Re: Calibrated depth map?

Depth map can be both obtained from .obj file and saved as a black&white image (exported depth map). The min value (0) corresponds to the first image of the stack, the max value - to the last one. If you know the distance between frames, the depth map can be easily calibrated.
