What app are you guys using for Focus stacking in IOS? I would like to see if it works without transferring to a computer.2

I honestly don't know that there has been one created for ios.  Not one that I've been able to find anyway.

There was a thread on this over at MRH on this earlier this week, and they mentioned something called Camera Pixels.  I looked it up but haven't tried it yet.

I tried Camera pixels. Says it does it, but I can't get it to work. I got it to take 227 pictures of the same thing though. :-)

You need a phone with two or three cameras first. Then click on "Mode", then "Focus Bracket". Next, go into "Set" and choose the number of images you want to take and the depth of focus you want. Take the picture, hold the phone as still as possible. After that you'll need to import the images into something that can do the focus stacking. Helicon Focus, Affinity Photo, etc. and merge them all into a single image. This app can't do the merging, but as far as I'm aware this is the first iOS app that can do the capturing, which is a good first step.

Not sure about an app, but I regularly create photo stacks on iPhone by simply touching the screen to move the focal point and create as many exposures that I want.  I then transfer to the computer for processing by Helicon Focus.  I have used this method for entire articles published in RMC and elsewhere.
