Focus stacking in Camera with Olympus EM1 Mk 2

I hadn’t really tried focus stacking with the Olympus EM1 Mk 2 before so tried it out on a dragonfly that was a particularly willing subject.  It must have been the cooler weather or the time of year but the dragonfly did not mind me at all.

Both of these images are focus stacked in camera and you can see in the picture showing the whole dragonfly how much depth of field that you get.  The output is a jpeg but quality seems very good.  One thing to remember is to stay a little further away than you would otherwise need to be for a single shot.  This is because when the picture is blended, any camera movement means the end image will be slightly cropped in compared to your original framing.  This seems to depend on how much you move while taking the pictures.  I would imagine this is not a problem when using a tripod.

Leith Hill in the Snow – Shot on iPhone

I am amazed with the quality of pictures you can take on a phone now.  There is still a definite limitation when it comes to low light but even that is much improved over older phones.  When the light is good you really can get away with a phone.  The Dynamic range is also very impressive.  This is shooting into the sun and there is still shadow detail.
