Very informative article Dr. neuroanatomist. Thanks!
Although I have always had a question on the effectiveness of AFMA.
My AFMA experience has suggested that the calibration is distance dependent.
i.e., if u calibrate an 85mm lens at a distance of 7 feet, it would be vy sharp
at that shooting distance. However, if u need to be shooting at 15feet for example,
the lens won't be as sharp. The AFMA is a 1 dimension adjustment and it
seems that the Canon factory lens calibration is capable of more than 1 dimension adjustment
to make the lens sharp at all shooting distance.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
Hi, Did you use any software for Camera/Lens calibration? Is there any online tutorial or best method to calibrate. I have a 5DM3, 24-105L F4, 70-200L F4 IS USM. Any advice is appreciated
I use Reikan FoCal Pro, highly recommend it. For my 1D X, manual mode is currently the only option, 5DIII works in semi-auto (for my 7D, and the 5DII I used to have, calibration is fully automatic).
For manual AFMA, I wrote a tutorial for TDP, based on LensAlign Pro, but with a DIY option as well.
