Mod­ern AF sys­tems are pretty im­pres­sive, but when it comes to macro pho­tog­ra­phy there’s re­ally no sub­sti­tute for the pre­ci­sion of man­ual fo­cus­ing. All you need to do is ac­ti­vate Live View, and press the Mag­nify but­ton on the back of your cam­era. On most mod­els, press­ing it once will mag­nify the area around the fo­cus point 5x, and twice will mag­nify it 10x. When zoomed in, you can ad­just the po­si­tion of the mag­ni­fied area us­ing the cam­era’s D-pad. Once you’ve found the point within the frame that you want to ap­pear per­fectly sharp, switch the lens to MF, and ad­just the fo­cus ring care­fully while watch­ing the LCD. If you pre­fer to fo­cus us­ing AF, en­sure only one fo­cus point is ac­tive so the cam­era fo­cuses on one pre­cise area.

Above For ac­cu­rate man­ual fo­cus, switch to Live View and press the mag­nify but­ton on the cam­era. Then ad­just the fo­cus ring un­til your im­age is sharp.
