G button C photo shooting menu
During focus shift, the camera automatically varies focus over a series of photographs. This feature can be used to take photos that can later be copied to a computer and combined using third-party focus-stacking software.
- Start shooting. Shooting will take the selected number of shots, changing the focus distance by the selected amount with each shot.
- No. of shots
- Choose the number of shots (maximum 300).
- Focus step width
- Choose the amount the focus distance changes with each shot.
- Interval until next shot
- Choose the interval between shots. Select 00 to take photos at approximately 5 fps (release modes S, Cl, Ch, and Mup) or 3 fps (release modes Q and Qc). To ensure the correct exposure when using a flash, choose an interval long enough for the flash to charge.
- Exposure smoothing
- Selecting On allows the camera to adjust exposure to match previous shot in exposure modes other than M (note that exposure smoothing only takes effect in mode M if auto ISO sensitivity control is on). Large changes in subject brightness during shooting may result in apparent variations in exposure, in which case it may be necessary to shorten the interval between shots.
- Silent photography
- Select On to silence the shutter during shooting.
- Starting storage folder
- Highlight either of the following options and press 2 to select or deselect:
- New folder: A new folder is created for each new sequence.
- Reset file numbering: File numbering is reset to 0001 whenever a new folder is created.
