Reikan Focal

Reikan Focal: Bring Autofocus to life!

Gadgets Jon recently joined us recently to talk about all things camera work! He spoke very highly of a piece of software that helped him out a lot. It’s called Reikan Focal, is designed to help calibrate a users autofocus.

Reikan Focal: Calibration

Calibration is what is being done to the camera, simply attach a DSLR to a laptop that has the Reikan Software installed on it. Then let it do it’s thing for 90 seconds to 20 minutes. So, attach the FoCal Target to a wall. Place your DSLR on to a camera. Connect it to a camera. Consequently just simply follow the instructions and set up guide step by step. So there’s no hacking required! It’s literally the minimal of interaction from you. Therefore, it simply is the piece of tech you need for all the camera enthusiasts out there.

Yet, as cool as this is, the Reikan Focal will not just calibrate your autofocus. Therefore, it’s even easier to unleash your camera’s abilities! Reikan Focal can also analyse, Aperture Sharpness, Autofocus Consistency, MultiPoint Focus and Dust Analysis.

However, there are two different price points for the calibration software. Each with differing features, while there is a £20 difference between the two.
