Hello daemonoropsis :)
I'll send you my email by mp. Please contact me on it and we'll try to look at it.
Is "stackshot not connected" the only message you get or do you have another one just before?

Android MTB StackShot Controller

Hello,
Here is the android version of my Stackshot Controller :)
Android MTB StackShot Ctrl

It can do all what its big brother was able to do and now you just need to carry a smartphone or a tablet instead of a computer... ;)

I hope it will be of some interest.

You just have to give some simple parameters : - Sensor size and nb pixels - Focal Leng...

I'm adding some stats calulation when you start an adaptive Bellows sequence. These stats compares the use of the dynamic moving calculation against the use of a constant step size. Here are some results with a 36x24 sensor, pupil ratio of 0.6, DOF OVERLAP of 1 and Max COC 2.5 (2.5 pixel size) : Len...

I could take some time to document the creation of a cheppo soft bellows. Here are the photos 1 - the material (choose a thin and opaque one): http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/2933_SoftBellows_1.jpg 2 - the first hole (adapted to the Pentax K/EOS adpater) http://www.photomacrography.net...

I don't understand what means floppy. It doesn't fit? The M42 adapter would not allow you to reach infinity without machining it. The PK adapter allows it. But you're right that you have to align manually the lens. If the lens is not perfectly in the axis it's not really a problem. For the bellows I...

hello nielsgeode, can you contact me via email (support@macro-toolbox.com) ? I don't want to pollute this forum with my software support ;) Your drivers are good and your stackshot has been found. When you have this message it means that the stackshot didn't responded to it's first request. Can you ...

Hello, This Software is a result of this post of Charlie Krebs, This post made me pondering a lot on the hardware to implement, and I decided to use my Stackshot to do the camera travelling. In addition, during my experiment, I decided that I needed to create a controller to automate the calculation...

A cheap flange to go into the Canon isn't hard by itself, one of the "something" to Canon body adapters would do. Eg you could use one designed for M42, and file the threads out. The lens could be racked in and out with some light sealing material glued to the rim of the flange. There may be some m...

Hi, This thread made me think to non destructives ways to make a stack from macro to infinite. If you have a EOS camera, a nice try is to use your old M42 lenses.... The M42 mount can slide into the EOS mount and reach infinity. You can even secure you mirror by using a Pentax K adapter. The Pentax ...
