How it works

When shooting very small objects, blurring is bound to occur in the image. The depth of field becomes very small. To compensate for this, a large number of images are taken and the camera is moved forward step by step. At the end, these images can be merged again using special software. The movement of the camera must be very fine. This is where our special macro slider comes into play. Through automation with the PINE controller, it triggers the camera and moves it one step forward. This is repeated until all individual photos have been taken.

Products for the Macro Mode

For the macro mode, our macro slider is needed. Through the ball head, the camera can be better aligned to the object. If you don’t have any products from Black Forest Motion yet, we recommend the Macro Bundle.

More Applications


The automatic tracking of the camera via a motorized rotation unit can compensate for the earth's rotation to obtain super sharp images of the night sky even with exposure times of several minutes.


Multiple frames are created at a fixed time interval. If all individual images are then combined to a video, slow events can be displayed at an accelerated rate. An additional movement of the camera achieves particularly dynamic time-lapses.


For 360-degree images, the camera is rotated and panned fully automatically in all directions in the perspective center while several individual images are created. By stitching the images together, interactive 360-degree images are created that capture everything around you.
