What actually is Focus Stacking?

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.

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.

NEW: HQ stacking with internal 64-bit calculation

With FOCUS projects 4 pro, you can count as many individual images as you like into a stack. The theoretical limit is approx. 1000 images.

And anyone who uses significantly fewer images for the stack will be happy with the much more precise calculation methods and thus more homogeneity in the images.

What’s more: as you can see, the Focus Stacking method is also perfect for ultra-sharp landscape photos!

NEW: Focus boost technology for even greater sharpness

The Focus Boost technologies of FOCUS projects 4 pro give your photos a further sharpness boost. After merging the individual images, specific image parts are gathered for repeated sharpness optimisation – thatʼs Focus Stacking squared.

 

Significance testing for your Focus Stack!

Which individual images really help and which upset the overall work of art? FOCUS projects 4 pro analyses the individual images in the Focus Stack and ignores the images that are not necessary for calculating the overall image. Your images thus contain fewer errors and the development process is streamlined
