    Brilliant photo program.... must see

    Guys,

    I just started using a free program called

    CombineZM

    get it here

    http://hadleyweb.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/CZM/News.htm

    It allows you to take a bunch of images with different depth of field points then combines the images to give a depth of field right across the whole image.

    For example. I shot several images of the Conquistador manually changing the focus point from the HRV right across to the back of the bezel. Now with a very small aperture you can get a pretty good depth of field but not like this. Check the image. It is sharp right across the whole watch.

    As my old man used to say : "FnB Pete".... the B stands for Brilliant. I'm sure you can guess what the F stands for

    I don't think it's too bad for my first attempt.

    Pete

    That is REALLY SWEEEEET Pete!!! Thanks for the link!!

    One question, did you use a tripod to make sure that you were shooting the multiple shots from the exact same location, before you "pieced" them all together??
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Jason,

    yep a tripod is a must. Also each increment is very small and is actually quite difficult to do initially. I'll keep practicing, especially with better lighting but it works a treat. here is basically the same shot (I increased the light sources) and used a fairly small aperature. As you can see the depth of field is reasonably small and concentrated on the dial. I'm sure with a bit of practice I could have taken multiple shots of this one and had the software make the whole watch in focus.

    Pete
