Fujifilm GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR Focus Stacking Examples

I’ve been shooting a lot which has not left much time for publishing, and some of these stacks take a while. Just organizing the day’s shoot takes an hour or two each day. I’m writing this before bedtime at 11700 ft ~=3566 meters in the White Mountains.

I’ve published another focus stacking example with the Fujifilm GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR, this time one at near macro range, and quite ambitious: 75 frames.

Fujifilm GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR Focus Stacking Examples, Various (GFX100)

Images presented at up to 100 megapixels resolution.

For comparison purposes, I include the single frame versus stacked frame for all the stacking examples so far. In this case, the detail rendition of the stacked image is spectacular! The GF 120/4 does not lack for sharpness.

While the Fujifilm GF 120mm f/4 just does not work with the FOCUS BKT feature for distance shots (nor does the GF 110/2), it does work at closer range. Even when FOCUS BKT works most of the way to the distance, I almost always have to shoot an infinity frame manually, and that’s true of the 23/4, 45/2.8, 32-64/4, 110/2 and 120/4 (though the latter two usually just don’t work at all to infinity). This is just ridiculous—obviously buggy and therefore poorly-tested code for FOCUS BKT got shipped with the GFX100. I hope Fujifilm gets the bugs worked out of FOCUS BKT soon.
