The ratio of the subject size on the film plane (or sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio. Likewise, a macro lens is classically a lens capable of reproduction ratios greater than 1:1, although it often refers to any lens with a large reproduction ratio, despite rarely exceeding 1:1. ALPA offers unique solutions also for the very demanding photography like focus stacking and image scales beyond life-size.
Macro equipment for focus stacking and ALPA macro lenses expand not only the horizon, but also the depth of an object in the very highest quality - Together with the photographer Bernhard Schurian from the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, ALPA developed a camera setup that breaks the standards of macro photography.
