ynot posted a topic in Fossil PhotographyHey hi Y'All, I am wanting to do some photo stacking and would like some advice on the available programs for doing it. I use an Amscope microscope and the field of view changes when I refocus. This causes the stacked pictures I have tried to be very blurred after merging. (I only have the included programs that came with the microscope.) Can You tell Me what program (s) are the best for the stacking of micro pictures? How do I compensate for the change in the field of view? Thanks for any help. Tony
This is not a review but merely my personal experience with this camera. I borrowed this camera from a colleague and there are several things I like about it. It is tough. The specifications says It's shockproof from heights up to 2.1 metres, waterproof to 15-metre depths, freeze proof to -10°C and also able to withstand 100kg of crushing force. Nice with a camera you don't have to worry about when taking it with you out in the field looking for fossils. No more worries about the camera being crushed in the rucksack because you by mistake have placed a big fossil on top of it. I also like the ide that I can take pictures without first washing the dirty sediments on my hands. I simply wash the camera afterwards if it gets dirty. It is good for macro photos. The camera have several different macros settings fx when the camera setting is turned over to the symbol of a Microscope (Super Macro) it lets you get as close as 0.4-inches from your subject. Very good for taking photos of small fossils. My personal favourite is when the camera is turned over to the symbol of a ladybug. Here the camera have a build in photo stacking function. When pressing the shoot button in this mode, the camera takes a series of photos, at different focus distances and combines them to one sharp image with a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images. Normally this is a time consuming process, that have to be done on a computer whit a program like Helicon Focus but here it is done in seconds in the camera.
