  1. Which lens were you using?

    1. In this video it’s the 105 macro (AF-S)

  2. Steve, what’s the make and model of the shoe mount external monitor you’re using? Is this an Atomos Shinobi display?

    1. It’s a Ninja V 🙂

      I only use it for screen recording though – I don’t use it when I’m out stacking and not doing a demo 😀

  3. Hi Steve! I am having a great time going through your video. I have a question: When photographing a flower or any other non-animal subject why can’t we use, say, a very thin ruler or any other gizmo easy to set focus on and set it just in front of the first area of focus needed so we get a few slices of focus in front of the critical focus to insure we are not missing that first part of the subject. With some flowers, such as the one you used for demonstration it may also cut the time it takes to unsure correct focus. ??

    1. You could, but keep in mind showing you how I do it takes substantially longer than actually doing it 🙂 In the field, I get focus set almost instantly – it would literally take me longer to reach over to my bag to grab a target than it does to just set it as shown.

  4. What memory card would you recommend using with a Nikon D850 for focus shift shooting? I imagine if you are doing a hundred shots, or so, the memory buffer would quickly fill up and the process would slow down dramatically. Am I correct to assume this? Would the process of photo shifting be faster with a qxd card, as opposed to a regular sd card, or is there another bottleneck that keeps the process slow?

    1. I typically use a CF express and have never had an issue. The thing is, it’s not running at full frame rate. I think the D850 takes a shot once every 0.5~1 second or so.
