A Quick Test with the Spyder Lenscal at Photo Plus Expo

by Chris Gampat on 10/28/2010

While everyone was busy having fun at the tweetup, I was stuck writing you this posting about just how awesome the Spyder Lenscal is and uploading videos to a server. So here, while you weren’t at Photo Plus Expo 2010, I was able to check out the product and saw just how off one of my lenses was.

So at first, I thought I’d just take a photo of the unit. Then I though, “Hmmm, why not try it out myself in a quick test?”

So I shot the flatplane and realized that my lens was backfocusing. Then I went into the Canon 7D’s custom menu and microadusted the lens.

Then the rep and I realized I was microadjusting the wrong direction.

Then I went three mm in the other direction and was able to achieve pretty darn tack sharp focus.

Once again, this was a quick test and we’ll be requesting a review unit sooner or later.
