What is the biggest problem with MDF? …DOF
They give us auto bracketing for HDR, so why not autofocus stacking for Focus Merge?
It would be even more useful if this was available remote tethered… we have power remote auto-focus but not manual remote focus (specifying a distance, or without having to re-compose to auto-focus).
Being able to tilt the Plane Of Sharpest Focus is the main argument for a view camera or a T/S adapter… but auto-focus-stacking would largely eliminate the requirement.
For Focus Merge to work well, you need to be able to re-focus in precise steps without touching the camera, and I do not know of any easy way of doing this without using a Medium Format Digital View Camera, or moving the subject on a precision positioning micrometer table like Doug did, see Doug's Article
I am contemplating using a Velmex programmable linear actuator for auto-focus-stacking, and it would be nice (and lucrative) to be the only fotog that could do it, so, perhaps, I would be happier if they do provide this as a standard function on the H4D-60.
Is it complicated David Grover Hasselblad? …can this be a software upgrade?
