Avoid “Soft” Images With Proper Calibration

Do you feel like your gear is letting you down by missing focus, leaving your amazing composition looking lackluster? Just bought an expensive lens, but still not impressed by its focus accuracy? Instead of spending hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on new gear, it’s more likely that you need to a calibration.

What is Lens Calibration?

A Camera & Lens Calibration is a series of micro adjustments that make a single DSLR camera and single external lens work better together. By making these adjustments we are able to compensate for the natural variations that occur during the manufacturing process. More Details

Calibrated vs. Uncalibrated: What’s the difference?

Use the slider on the right to see the difference. 

Uncalibrated — “Technically” this uncalibrated image is in focus, but much of the true detail is missing due to an inaccurate focus.

Calibrated — When you adjust the slider to see the full Calibrated image, you see the detail all the amazing details come through that make an image come to life.

The uncalibrated image lacks the polished, professional look that you can only achieve when your camera and lens are properly calibrated to focus accurately.

More Information On Calibration

Camera and lens calibration, or Autofocus Microadjustment (AFMA), is a procedure that allows a technician to adjust for front or back focusing autofocus errors. Even the highest-quality DSLR photo equipment is not manufactured to identical specifications.

Because of these slight variations during production, combinations of cameras and lenses that aren’t exactly calibrated can result in errors in focus. Additionally, after heavy use of gear, because of all the moving parts inside of your camera and lenses, perfectly calibrated camera equipment can fall out of alignment over time.
