I agree Alan, the AUTO stacking feature is a big plus. I have recently been using my iPad Pro for a lot of photo import and processing and found that Affinity Photo for iPad has a very nice focus stacking feature. Did a quick little desktop test with the X100V on a small tripod, set to shoot highest quality jpegs and used the auto focus bracket mode to shoot a couple of rolls of 120 film a few inches apart. Used aperture of f/4 and the camera took 29 shots of the simple scene. I imported the shots directly onto my iPad into an album in the Apple Photos app, opened the Affinity Photo stacking app, imported the jpegs, and let it do its thing. Took just a few seconds to auto align and stack the images and the resulting composite was saved. Very neat and quick workflow.That's a fair point Carl, would cut out a lot of work but we would be at the mercy of the s/w to deal with movement/artifacts.
I am pleased they have now given us a sensible method of working with "auto", surely this is the most common sense way of implementing this feature?
