Focus stacking is the process of capturing multiple images each with a slight change in focus. These images can then be combined in post processing for enhanced depth of field. But the process of capturing all these images can be intimidating and time-consuming.
The CamRanger makes this process easy for you. You compose your shot, set your near and far focus points, and let your CamRanger do the rest. It will calculate the number of images needed to ensure that your subject is in perfect focus.
When it comes to Macro photography, getting perfectly sharp focus is crucial. With the CamRanger, you can utilize the large screen of a tablet or computer to check and adjust focus, giving you precise control over your camera and lens.
You’ll be able to see details you can easily miss on a smaller screen, and with the CamRanger focus controls, you’ll be able to get your focus exactly where you want it for your image.
The CamRanger allows you to utilize your phone, tablet, or laptop to check composition, exposure, and most importantly for macro images: focus.
For example, use your iPhone or iPad to magnify the live view of the camera and those small details you may have missed. From there, you can capture images and adjust settings like focus, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and more, all within the CamRanger software.
“I took several photos with the macro lens to check the quality of the focus control and I was astonished with precision of the calculation. My camera took 72 pictures that I processed with Photoshop and I created one perfect in-focus image, all in one go.” – Oliver
“The CamRanger 2 is the BEST addition to my photography gear in a long time! It is it so convenient to use and has become indispensable for my macrophotography.” – Nancy
“The fact that on the CamRanger 2 you can select the starting and the ending points of a stack is the best feature of this new product for me. No more guessing. The CamRanger 2 determines the number of shots you have to take to get the subject in full focus. I really recommend it to anyone who wants to easily enter the world of full-focus macro photography.” – Alfredo
