Focus Stacking Articles
WeMacro, the company that produces the Wemacro focus stacker, has continued to expand its focus stacking portfolio offerings and has come out with some unique extreme macro products this year that have caught my eye, including a vertical stand for stacking and a microscope stepper. To my knowledge it is the only company that is offering accessories such as these at a price that is doable for the amateur.
Amateur Photographer approached me to write part of a feature it’s doing on focus stacking. They’ve also approached a landscape photographer for his perspective on stacking, and all in all it should make for a decent issue.
In terms of companies currently making electronic macro stacking rails, this very small number of companies should be prepared to experience some disruption this year (2017), with the introduction of a brand new DIY macro stacking rail kit by MJKZZ. This is a piece of DIY kit that provides everything required to buy a base THK KR2001 rail and to DIY it up into a fully-fledged, class-leading electronic macro focus-stacking rail, all at about half the total cost of the current class leader.
