Nope, doesn't really have anything to do with Ultra-Wide angle,
except for how wider lenses had traditionally had a physics advantage
for being easier to achieve deeper Depth of Field (DoF) than longer
focal lengths...

....and the traditional method to do this was to set the lens at its
hyperfocal distance, crank shut the aperture (~f/22) and then lengthen
the shutter speed to get back to the desired exposure.

For there to now be new tools in the toolbox to do this under different
conditions ... faster shutter speeds, which require either higher ISO
or a more open aperture ... simply increases the flexibility and the
potential applicability for this composition technique to be applied.

And if products like Helicon's makes the workflow more productive,
so be it. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

People should consider looking elsewhere than just PS. Helicon is unsung and a great stacking program. While a few years back I watched utter crap being produced by stitching in Photoshop, a program out of the University of British Columbia produced fantastic, seamless panoramas and collages.


Commercially available as Autopano Pro - very good indeed!

That is very promising for panos, but what about focus stacking/bracketing
blending for landscapes, which was what the Petapixel article Rich posted was
all about?
