I found out that the more files you make the better final image will be. The problem is that I find Helicon Focus a bit slow when I put 10-15 Nikon D800E files to process. It's not that slow, but if you have a lot of products to do in short period of time it really slows you down.

I had thought that a Hasselblad 200 Mpx multishot with built-in autostacking would be a useful tool, but stacking several 200Mpx files would slow you down, so it seems that the GFAE CAPcam will be the only productive tool for catalog photography, and the "kit of choice" where tilt will get it all in focus.

Hi,

Not necessarily. You do need to take the correct number of shots, which follows from matching the DOF zones. This requires choosing the correct COC parameter for the calculations and step size. The correct COC is dictated by the sensel pitch. For Close-up photography, especially with a Stackshot, DOF formulas based on the magnification factor are accurate enough.

Cheers,
Bart
