90, 55, 35, the rest is the k-1 plus 180, 300, 50 or 100 macro, godox flash, diffuser. i can never seem to leave the house without 28lbs of gear. once in a while i'll just have the k-1 and sigma 180, and the z with the 90.

How important is camera balance to you?

it would be nice if the tripod foot of xxx lens on xxx camera was balanced so when i put the camera on a table, it's stable... otherwise, i don't understand why anyone would care about "balance"

canon's 32mp 90d is fine if you keep the lenses in a range where diffraction (or whatever) isn't ruining everything, which for canon lenses is a whole different ballgame compared to pentax (p is better). the baso iso image isn't as clean as ff though... true of every crop camera i've tried.


i'll take all the mp they'll throw at me. right now if i want a whole... say... ant in focus, you get there two ways (without stacking):


close with a tiny aperture... ruins the photo because the image gets too soft from diffraction(or whatever), so for it to appear sharp, has to be small.


further away with a larger aperture... image is sharp, but you have to crop so much the resulting image also ends up being small.

a 200mp(or whatever) k-1 would make the second scenario work... so there are benefits other than printing large, etc...

Question : Focus stacking using multiple exposures?
Posted By sculptor666
Replies: 14
Views: 745
you can stack anywhere from 2-3 photos to 10 to a couple hundred. in-camera focus bracketing (some canon's do this) is neat, but you can't use a flash... so... useless to me. this is an eleven photo focus stack, handheld... not sharp enough for me, but whatever. insects move, so conditions are rarely perfect. some people use dead ones... some use refrigeration. macro rail would be good in a studio situation, but useless elsewhere. you use camera position to take multiple pictures, not re-focusing the lens. some people get great results with dead insects and a tripod and a canon using constant lighting and focus bracketing... but not my thing. yet:D

on subjects that are far away, without the ability to zoom in through the ovf and make sure it's focusing... automatically or not... on a tiny little bird eye, doesn't seem like an advantage... you're just getting as close as you can, same as manual.


on subjects that are close, where the focus conformation box is the same as/smaller than the eye, it will be pretty awesome. even better if you can assign eye/af to a button on the camera body so you can switch from center point af to eye-tracking without moving the camera from your eye.
