    Pictures not as focused as I thought using New 200-600mm Sony lens! Help?

    Hi folks, I’m wondering if you could possibly provide some advice. I have a Sony A7ii and I pair this with a recently purchased Sony 200-600mm lens (so it’s new to me). However I’m finding a lot of my images to not be as sharp as I thought (from others images/reviews prior to my purchase) or...

    Sony A7R3 issues with keeping focus on static object (due to humidity?)

    Hi all, I’ve been having some focus issues with my Sony A7R3 and I’m wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem? This happened to me while using AF-S single shooting to focus on still sceneries or object. First the camera focuses onto the subject but then it loses focus quickly...

    Hardware/software/apps for Automatic Focus Pull Nikon

    Wide angle shot - Is it out of focus or correct?

    Hi, Two days back I shot this in my friend's wedding. I have no good experience in wide angle shot and hence tried this with curiosity (pic. attached) Imgur While shooting this, I could not focus as it was very dark out there. Autofocus kept shunting even with LED modeling lamp of Godex...

    Focusing on the subject while taking a wide angle shot

    I have a D3200 camera with 18-105 mm lens. Yesterday I tried shooting a couple in a wide angle frame (18 mm focal length). This is my general practice when I take a shot wider than 80mm: 1. Switch to manual focus 2. Zoom to 105 mm 3. Focus on the eyes of the subject 4. Zoom back to desires FL...

    Focus problem with the Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art

    Hey, ich have the Canon T6i/750D with the Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art lens. I also bought the Sigma USB Dock and tried to calibrate it. I haven't had problems with the first three calibratable distances (0.25, 0.35, 0.6) but when I shoot at distances which are further away than those like 2, 5, 10, 20...

    Nifty fifty STM - focus issues, or human error?

    I have a question for users experienced with fast primes. Today, I tried to test AF with my 700D (T5i) and my two lenses: - EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS STM - EF 50mm 1.8 STM I noticed an issue with the 50mm. When I open up the aperture to the max, the AF jumps a bit on every other photo. But...

    Question about focus (Nikkor 50 mm)

    So, I went from a kit lens 18-105 mm to a 50 mm 1.4 and I have a little problem with the focus. With the other lens there was no problem because the maximum aperture was 3.5 so it wasn't hard to make things focused. But with the 50 mm I am struggling to make the focus right, like I think it's...

    Canon EOS 1N

    Hello all, Recently I purchased an EOS 1n. I receive it today and tried to use it with no success. The auto focus goes to minimum focus distance then to infinity then the in focus indicator just flashes. I haven't been able to find any help on this. The only error I see online is the BC error...

    How can I improve focus?

    One thing that plagues me are photos that appear ok in the viewfinder/LCD (even when I zoom in) but turn out to be quite a bit out of focus in post. I tend to use the auto focus just about any time I'm not on the tripod, and almost always on spot focus. My technique is to center the thing I...
