    Focus bracketing

    Some of the new cameras out recently like the RP and the 90D come with the built in facility to do focus bracketing. However, it looks like there is a lack of detail on how it works and how to set it up judging by a query on this subject by a member recently. Those that have cameras with this facility may well welcome an article that describes how it works in the camera and how to set it up.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However, we covered focus bracketing in an 8-page article in EOS magazine October-December 2019.

      So you did Robert - but the article does not adequately answer the specific question raised by BobSapey in the "Digital Cameras" part of the forum.

        It is an interesting article and I have read it, but there is nothing in it about how to decide on the focus increment which is an important part of the process. I've tried some experiments which I posted in the Digital Cameras section yesterday, but it would be easier if you were able to find out from Canon how the Focus Increment scale works. It's a pity they haven't yet published it.

          As far as I know, there is nothing from Canon on this at the moment. As a general rule, small subjects will be best shot with narrow increments (settings 1 to 5) while larger subjects will require wide increments (settings 6 to 10). My guess is that there is no 'correct' setting. Since, most of the time, you will be photographing a static subject, it will be easy to shoot using different focus increments and then choose the result you prefer.
