Re: Focus shift

I have had a similar problem. One workaround is to deliberately set the initial end points well beyond what is needed. While it means the stacking program deals with unneeded shots, it avoids losing some in-focus shots over time.

Re: Stackshot 3X and Remote

It's odd that shots are skipped. You should send a bug report from Helicon Remote when that happens. Or do you mean that the shot is not performed by the Stackshot at all, and not that Helicon Remote fails to download the image? I am transferring directly from the camera to an external hard drive, ...

Stackshot 3X and Remote

Using Helicon Remote with Stackshot 3X Because Remote can only control one motor on Stackshot, I have developed this workaround to combine both Remote and Stackshot 3X. Disclaimer: I have only worked with Nikon cameras, but I assume Canon should work in a similar fashion. Camera : Either fresh batt...

Re: Using Stackshot

Since you can control everything using Remote, there is no need for calculations. Remote will read all your camera settings, lens, speed, f stop and ISO. Once you set the start and end points on screen the program determines how many shots are needed (you can override this if you wish). Press the St...

Are you working on a copy stand? I had a similar problem because, when it is pointing straight down, the camera cannot decide if it is in portrait or landscape mode. I solved it by tilting the entire stand a few degrees.

The latest download recognizes it, and seems to work so far.

When do you expect to have support for the Nikon D500?

Re: Dust map files

I am still not sure what I am doing wrong. Stacks created with and without a Dust Map look identical. The Dust map is shot under the same conditions as the stack.

Re: Question for Mac users

No real change, maybe 10% faster. Is this problem unique to me, or is it a more general Mac problem?

Question for Mac users

I capture my stacks on an external drive connected to my MacBook Air, and then take the drive home to process the files using Focus on my iMac. Sometimes I will process files at work, on the MacBook, and find that both machines take exactly the same time, even though the iMac should be 3-5 times fas...

Aperture stuck at zero

I am connected to my Nikon D7200 and suddenly the Aperture control is grayed out and stuck at zero. Everything was working until a few minutes ago, and no changes have been made to the system. Helicon remote 3.6.5
