Getting more out of Focus :-)
« on: May 20, 2020, 11:16:35 AM »
The C19 chaos gave  me the time to create two web-based classes on focusing, that I gave to my UK camera club, and that I thought ML friends might be interested in them, as I do mention Lua scripting: http://photography.grayheron.net/2020/05/getting-even-more-out-of-focus.html

All the best and I hope you are all surviving the ‘insanity’ of C19.

Cheers and stay safe

Highly recommended, and - at least at first sight - very well explained, even for those not familiar with the topic.

One small problem (on our end): those graphs should be displayed on the camera screen, in real-time, not just on the computer monitor, in a simulation :D

@a1ex

Thanks for the feedback.

Regarding your on the cam screen comments, as you are aware, I’ve explored graphical ways of giving the user feedback, eg some of the earlier versions of my DoF scripts tried to convey the DoF blur field, however, I kept trying to work around the current Lua graphing limits.

As I’ve said elsewhere, I remain convinced that an expanded Lua API would breathe new life into ML, as it gives the likes of scripters, such as myself, the ability to add some use-case-specific value.

I’m afraid I’m ‘never’ going to get into core coding, and continue to rely on others who know what they are doing to take Lua to the next capability level in ML.

Once again, thanks for the feedback.

Cheers and stay safe
