Nikon D850: 'Focus Shift Shooting' at Close Range

See my Nikon wish list and get Nikon D850 at B&H Photo.

See my growing review of the Nikon D850 in Advanced DSLR.

Nikon D850 Focus shift shooting

Yesterdays discussion and examples of the Focus shift shooting feature in the Nikon D850 led me to call it a “killer app” which made buying the D850 just for that one feature a very reasonable thing to do.

Nikon D850 'Focus Shift shooting' feature for Easy Focus Stacking

Examples of Focus Stacking using Nikon D850 'Focus Shift shooting' for Focusing

I wondered if the Nikon D850 Focus shift shooting feature would work equally well at distance and at close range. As seen below, it is impossible to get this kind of detail without focus stacking and that detail remains incredibly finely detailed right up to full 45-megapixel resolution (on the example page, above.

I reiterate my view the the Nikon Focus shift shooting feature is a Killer App. The results I’m getting using Zerene Stacker to stack the images from this Nikon shooting feature are incredibly detailed and problem-free. It’s very exciting that it works near or far.

These trout are apparently the beautiful variety from the Desert Springs hatcher. Local fishing-gear stores and county governments import these beauties which look and taste as close to King Salmon as any Onchorynchus mykiss that I’ve ever had. These fish are about 5 pounds, 4 pounds, and 3 pounds. The next day I caught two more at 5 and 4 pounds. I’ve been eating a lot of incredibly good fish.
