    Did a quick Test in Focus Bracketing using Helicon Focus Pro Software (supports RAW) to stack them together

    Now I have to try more different subjects and Camera setting to get a great image.

    I can use the software alone or I import photos into LR to process them and send them directly to Helicon for stacking.

    I've used many times PICOLAY ( free software) it is good but no RAW support and a bit tricky. Helicon is amazing

    I tried the three different Rendering methods


    Rendering A - weighted average

    O.K. The Helicon is fantastic. 15 shots handheld. The subject was tinier than my daughter tiny fingernail.

    Date: 2018:05:09 10:03:54 - Manufacturer: Olympus Corporation - Model: TG-5 - Focallength: 5.5 mm - Measurement: Pattern - Aperture: 2.3 - ISO: 800 - Exposuretime: 1/100 sec - Flash: No Flash

    So I just have to put the camera on a tripod and I think there will some great outputs.
