OK, so I feel pretty sure that the answer to my quandry should be very clear to me, but it just isn't!

The topic is focus stacking for macro photography and the question is: Is it technically better to maintain the camera body-to-subject position and rotate the focussing ring for multiple shots, or to maintain the focus ring position and move the camera(+lens) along a focussing rail to obtain multiple shots.

I haven't tried either technique and I do understand that a pretty high quality focussing rail would be necessary/desirable for the second approach.

My mind is trying to come to grips with stacking images which differ slightly in size.

Will someone please put me out of my misery and educate me?

With thanks in advance,

Pete
