FoCal Pro from Reikan is purpose designed to provide a comprehensive and accurate way to focus calibrate and test most modern Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras and lenses. Included with each FoCal Pro purchase is the licence key to use FoCal Pro with supported cameras on both Windows and Mac operating systems.
FoCal runs on your computer and connects to the camera using a USB cable (supplied with cameras). Using this connection FoCal is able to operate the camera remotely, driving it to capture test images, download those images and analyse them for sharpness and detail in real time. FoCal determines the best auto focus calibration value for any attached auto focus compatible lens, setting mirror lockup and de-focusing between each test image. Proprietary image processing and predictive statistical algorithms allow FoCal to calculate the best calibration accurately and easily and with minimal input from the user.
FoCal Pro is able to automate much of the calibration process, as a result auto focus calibration with FoCal is quick, accurate and provides an objective and error free method of lens calibration.
FoCal Pro provides many totally unique functions in addition to its core task of auto focus calibration, including:
- Assisted Target Setup – Live View help for getting the target set up correctly.
- Semi Automatic Calibration – automatic control of the camera to simplify you find the best settings.
- Fully Automatic Microadjustment/Fine Tune Calibration – camera/lens calibration at the touch of a button!
- Manual Calibration Mode – calibrate from a set of image files you shot manually.
- Aperture Sharpness – find out the sharpest aperture for your lenses
- Autofocus Consistency – check out the autofocus performance of you camera.
- Dust Analysis – find out how much dust is on your sensor, and which aperture it will start affecting images.
- MultiPoint Focus Test – automated comparison of many focus points, and even full individual calibration.
As well as the extra tests above, FoCal Pro also gives you these extra features which work across all tests (where relevant):
- Report Generation – generates details PDF reports with all analysis results
- Target Optimisation – uses features of the FoCal target to optimise test analysis
- Expert Mode – allows changing of test settings, e.g. aperture and ISO
and with FoCal Pro, you get access to early beta releases and new features first!
