Re: Techniques for shooting flowers using extended rail

Normally the number of shots can be calculated by dıvıdıng object sıze by DOF ın mm and multıplyıng by factor of 1.3 to allow for overlapping. For example, flower 100 mm / DOF 5 mm * 1.3 = 26 shots. This is rough estimation, the final decision should be made by looking at the resulting image - there should be no out of focus strips between well focused areas. I think your troubles are cased by parallax and other factors, not by small DOF.
