Moving the camera in/out, as with rails, thereby changing field of view within the series of images, as opposed to, changing focus plane using the focusing ring and not changing the field of view.
Which technique coughs out the better result within a studio environment?

I think you get very similar results at least with fairly small stacks but all the hyper focus stackers seem to use fixed focus and either move the camera or move the subject.

This is interesting. I would think that at such close distances you would get a perspective distortion if you kept moving the camera. I guess not! I have yet to try any of it myself, but I can see a back-to-back comparison coming.
