I realise that its not possible though if you are hand held.
I agree fully!

Hand held is a bit of a lottery as far as the focus point is concerned especially when the subject is blowing in the breeze!

I will be trying the stacking again soon, and trying to chase down some interesting subjects, even though we've "bee friendly" planted the garden we're not as lucky as some on here with visitors to the garden! So I will take the rig down the road to the local National Trust gardens at some point...

The main reason for setting this up is to try and get some decent photos from inside Cathy's beehive!

Some Olympus stuff
I didn't get where I am today...
