Datacolor SpyderLensCal Camera Focus Calibration Tool Product Info

Datacolor SpyderLensCal Focus System provides a fast, reliable method of measuring the focus performance on your camera and lens combinations. This DataColor Focus Calibration tool allows photographersimage to obtain razor-sharp focusing, using modern DSLR autofocus micro-adjustment, or check to see that their lenses are working at their peak performance. The DataColor Spyder LensCal is compact, lightweight and durable, with integrated level and tri-pod mount. Performing a Lens Calibration on each of your key auto-focus lenses with the DataColor SpiderLensCal can improve the number of usable shots from a day's shooting. This rugged, portable lens calibration tool can be carried on site or even on safari, so that lens calibration can be checked and adjusted if hard use or extreme weather may have caused changes

The Data Color Spyder LensCal system lets you solve one of the most frustrating problems in photography - the struggle for accuracy and repeatability when using autofocus. Auto-focus is a great convenience, especially in fast shooting situations; but typically, the first step in reviewing files from a shoot is tossing all the images where the focus isn't quite right. One of the most frequent causes is auto-focus error. We tend to blame this on the camera choosing the wrong object, or the wrong point on the object as the focal point, but there is another possibility, one we hate to consider, given the price of the hi-end lenses we use: the autofocus of our lens may simply be off. When you take a simple shot of a flat object perpendicular to the camera, and it still isn't quite as sharp as it should be, you have to accept that this may be the cause. Many newer DSLR cameras now offer a method to correct this issue: they allow you to store auto-focus correction data for several of your most important lenses. Data Color Spyder Lens Cal allows photographers to easily calibrate their interchangeable lenses and recent DSLR bodies. There is no need to ship lenses and bodies back to the manufacturer any longer if you have the tools to do it yourself.
