What is Camera and Lens Calibration?

How Our Order Process Works

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 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 equipment can fall out of alignment over time.
