Do’s and Don’ts Us­ing man­ual fo­cus

Some sim­ple tips to in­crease sharp­ness when you take full con­trol of fo­cus­ing

Digital Camera World - - CAMERA COLLEGE -

Fo­cus be­fore zoom­ing

Once you’ve set your fo­cus dis­tance, avoid zoom­ing the lens as this can cause the fo­cus to shift and you may end with blurred results.

For­get your ro­ta­tion

Know­ing which way to turn the fo­cus ring to move the fo­cus point can mean you don’t miss shots in the heat of the mo­ment.

Con­sider get­ting a loupe

It can be hard to see a Live View dis­play in day­light. An LCD screen viewer or loupe can both shield the screen and mag­nify the image.

Fo­cus too quickly

Fo­cus­ing steadily back and forth across the de­tail you want in fo­cus makes it eas­ier to see where the image snaps into sharp fo­cus.
