HYPERFOCAL DISTANCE FOCUSING TECHNIQUES
Guy aims to explain hyperfocal distance focusing, a technique that’s often seen as confusing. “To find the hyperfocal distance I use Live View to focus, zooming in to x10 view that’s available on most Canon DSLRS. I can zoom into x16 on my 50-megapixel 5DS R to fine-tune the focusing. I then focus manually on my lens on the most distant point in the picture, using an aperture around about f/11 or f/16. After that I simply hold the Depth of Field button down, and dial the focusing back a tiny bit so that distant point is only just a little blurry. Then that’s your hyperfocal distance focusing point, and your whole scene will be captured in an acceptably sharp manner!” smiles Guy.
