Fujifilm GFX100: Focus Stacking Handheld with IBIS

This page discusses focus stacking with handheld shooting with sensor stabilization (IBIS) enabled.

The Fujifilm GFX100 offers three key features that make handheld focus stacking more viable than any camera I have used before (through late 2019): fully electronic shutter + very fast exposure bracketing + highly effective image stabilization (IBIS). I wondered if I could generate credible focus-stacked images shooting handheld.

Image presented at sizes up to 100 megapixels.
