New focus stacking rail
Posted By: Nass, 06-10-2016, 11:52 PM

Just a fyi - I've done a review of the WeMacro rail, which is an electronic rail like stackshot only a lot cheaper ($300 vs. S560). I also have stackrail coming, another competitor to Stackshot, so I should be able to add a side by side review of all 3 soon.

Hi Johan

Just curious if you have gotten ant feedback on the Helicon FB Tube. I think it would be ideal for field photography.

Thanks
Bob
I've had one very positive opinion from someone who bought it, but not a detail review of any sort. By the sounds of things it sounds as if it's good though

This is my first photo with the Helicon FB Tube - also used fill flash
This is the technique I want to use in conservatories
The challenge - the tub is an extension tube which means no infinity focus - the 105mm max focus distance is about 1.5 meters. I need to find a lens that combines angle of view and max focus distance that enable a better range for flowers.
