Focus boost technology for even greater sharpness

Are you familiar with it? Even when you are very close to an object, is the depth of field still not sufficient to clearly show the entire object? Anyone who enjoys taking photographs with scales of 1:1 or greater reaches the limits of the lens quicker than they would like.

The depth of field is still very low in photographs taken at these scales. It cannot be balanced out through strong fading because the detail sharpness of the complete image is then reduced and there is also insufficient light available.

Focus Stacking – The best way to improve your Images

We have put an end to all this. The solution is: take a Focus Stack! FOCUS projects 4 pro merges all photos with 3 to 1000 sharpness levels into one image with incomparable depth of field.

The photographed object is now consistently sharp from front to back and this is all effortlessly and in just a few seconds. You don’t need to press buttons or adjust controls. You get sharp macros automatically.

News: Extended DiamondCut technology

A new sharpening process has been developed for the focus fusion feature of FOCUS projects 5 professional: Which makes the blur correction now much more precise. This makes the results significantly more accurate!

Perhaps you are familiar with this problem: When you get very close to an object with your camera, the depth of field is not enough to capture the entire object in sharp focus. If you like to shoot at scales of 1:1 or above, you’ll reach the limits of your optics sooner than you’d like. Stopping down a lot? That’s not an option either, since it reduces the sharpness of detail of the entire image. Even fast shutter speeds don’t help …

The solution to this problem is a focus series – a so-called focus stack! Shoot your macro-object with several individual images and shift the focus backwards piece by piece. FOCUS projects 5 professional then merges all the shots from 3 to 1500 focus levels into a single image with unparalleled depth of field.

The photographed object is now consistently sharp from front to back – entirely effortless and in a matter of seconds. Without needing to press any buttons or tampering around with sliders. All-automatic sharp macros.
