Rack Focus cycle
« on: July 19, 2014, 05:20:15 PM »
Please, can you add the choice of never-ending cycle to Rack Focus? I need it to make timelapse with large aperture.

There is some example:
(1/13 F13.4 ISO3200 f300; MLV video)

The building is not in focus. ISO is in limits of usability. I had to make a compromise. If I set longer exposure, Moon woud be blur...

Rack Focus cycle is solution for me: focus to building / focus to Moon / focus to building / ...
(+ join couple of images in postproduction)

I read it. But I do not want to use shutter actuation :-( And "Full-resolution silent pictures" is not yet practically applicable.

you can use that module with silent pics if you wish

"Full-resolution silent pictures" is not yet practically applicable.
I'm not sure what you mean by that, it does work.

Yes! Silent pics is good. I did not know that you can save photo to DNG. (I used it only in release version.)
Thanks
