01 EOS CSC – PEAK­ING SET­TINGS

Press MENU and find MF Peak­ing Set­tings in the shoot­ing menus. Turn Peak­ing ‘On’ and make the in­ten­sity level ‘High’. Red is the best colour in many sit­u­a­tions, as it’s the easy to see on the back screen.

03 TURN THE RING…

Fo­cus peak­ing will over­lay a coloured high­light on the tex­tures and edges of what­ever is cur­rently in fo­cus. As you turn the fo­cus ring and shift your plane of fo­cus, you will see the colour glide over your sub­ject.

05 MAG­NIFY

If you’re fo­cus­ing on fine de­tail, or you want to en­sure that a spe­cific part of your im­age is pin-sharp, use the Mag­nify func­tion in conjunction with Peak­ing to zoom in and make sure the fo­cus is where you want it.

02 CHANGE TO MF

Once you’ve turned MF Peak­ing on, the fo­cus peak­ing func­tion will be ac­tive when­ever you go into man­ual fo­cus. So, switch to man­ual fo­cus mode ei­ther through the menus, touch­screen or but­ton short­cut.

04 … SEE FO­CUS SHIFT

When the de­sired part of your sub­ject is within the coloured area, it is in fo­cus. Now sim­ply de­press the shut­ter as nor­mal to cap­ture the im­age (don’t worry, the coloured high­lights won’t be recorded).

06 CHANGE COLOUR

If the colour of your peak­ing is blend­ing into what­ever you’re shoot­ing, go back into the MF Peak­ing Set­tings menu. From here you can se­lect a dif­fer­ent colour that stands out bet­ter from your sub­ject.
