If you have Parallels on your Mac, you can run the Windows version fine, but if not, it may take a while. For that reason I'm reluctant to recommend it to anyone who is not already fairly savvy about in-camera microfocus adjustments. I'll start FoCal again once I learn the camera more. Vino2nite, If you have not used in-camera microfocus calibrations for your lenses before, then I recommend you begin with something far easier and intuitive to use, like LensAlign. It should have used one, but I keep trying! It takes a bit of time to get up to speed on how to use it, reading through the documentation, but none of it is difficult to grasp. Oliver I thought it was odd that you send the serial number of your camera s when you order.
The details of your camera and lens, as well as any Microadjustment you might already have set for the lens attached will be displayed. Either that, or because I changed lenses with the camera connected and software open, which I also read can cause problems. I do have to agree with you,unless you are somewhat familiar with the basics of micro-adjusting a lens it probably is not for you. Feel free to ask more if you want. Also, a test to find the sharpest apertures of your lenses is coming, and this is very powerful. To create more accurate search results for Reikan Focal try to exclude using commonly used keywords such as: crack, download, serial, keygen, torrent, warez, etc.
Thanks for the Update for High Sierra on Mac. I have ended up with two 180mm f2. Alan Horten says: Still using El Capitain Canon 1Dx mark 2 requires manual adjustment. With nearer distances you might find a standard printed target works fine for this, if the target is taking up most or all of the screen you can re-print the target smaller as needed to ensure that it still fits inside the 90% with the closest distance. As a professional photographer with very exacting commercial clients, I find this system poses the fewest headaches while getting the job done quickly. This download, when unzipped, contains 3 folders at least for my Plus version.
Thank you very much for getting back so quickly. This is the first of a few tools that will be coming to the FoCal website based on the uploaded information we have. Can someone tell me how to go about acquiring this software and the approximate cost. I started to wonder now whether the problem was in the focussing distance, or the focal length? I tried to go to the Reikan site but it keeps asking for an account name. The sweet spot is f9 on the 50D. And it gave me a 100% improvement in autofocus accuracy sharper photos over what came out of the box from the factory! The data is anonymous except for your camera serial number which we only use to group the data and we are only access the information to generate combined information like you see on this first tool.
You can perform the test at any distance, and if you often use your lens at Minimum Focus Distance, you might want to calibrate at that distance, as the results can vary, but the FoCal documentation quotes the Canon advice of calibrating at 50x the focal length of the lens. FoCal and LensAlign are two different solutions to a common objective. I have found that Nikon lenses are pretty close but some can benefit from this software particularly the 'G' lenses. I then calibrated my 24-70mm f2. I just tried and got the same thing. In my opinion it is worth every penny. Still no response after another two working days.
The camera connection is fine from the Laptop System Report. I have always heard it is 1 ½ or 2 stops closed down from wide open. You password protects your account so you should use a unique and strong password, limit access to your computer and browser and log out after you have used the FoCal License Management System. Perhaps a large road sign with text on it, or a high rise apartment block that has strong defined lines say window frames. The distance, especially for the close in distances should be fairly accurately measured measure to the sensor plane usually indicated on the top of the camera. This information is collected on an aggregate basis.
Unfortunately they don't tell you that the new licenses is there. Click the image to view details Analysis Screen I went on to test my 70-200mm f2. It's not about the quality of the gear. Where is the target that needs to be printed? Short lead, what might be worth trying and may help. Am I to assume another outlay of cash for the LensAlign? Many downloads like Reikan Focal may also include a crack, serial number, unlock code, cd key or keygen key generator. To provide some background, we have 7 High Sierra development machines here and FoCal 2.
