|What is LensAlign™?|
|You're a journalist capturing the speaker at the podium...
You're a sports shooter targeting the chest of a speed skater...
You're shooting glamor up close, really tight DOF, and that lead eye better be tack sharp...
Almost all cameras and lenses are mass produced. Any mass produced product, even very expensive DSLRs and high-end lenses, is designed and manufactured within certain allowed tolerances. The sensor and the focal plane, the autofocus mirror assembly and the focus sensor, and the myriad of other critical tolerances are not all perfect. In combination, these manufacturing tolerances can degrade accurate focus performance.
If a focus problem exists, before you can fix the problem, you need to accurately measure any focus deviation. Now you can.
LensAlign™ is a patent pending hardware-based tool for precision focus analysis of camera and lens combinations. Photographers and camera repair facilities can use LensAlign to determine if the focus system of the camera (auto and/or manual) is working properly with each and every lens. In other words, using LensAlign, one can assess whether a specific camera body and lens combination is capable of attaining the maximum sharpness for that pairing. Having a LensAlign system in your studio or home is like owning a factory-quality calibration system providing quick, accurate and repeatable results.
And now, when used with LensAlign, many of the latest DSLRs allow you to adjust the auto-focus for each lens using their menu accessible Micro Adjustment or AF Tune feature.
Precision and Certified
LensAlign is designed to achieve all of these criteria in a simple, compact and easy to use measurement tool. LensAlign PRO and LensAlign PRO PLUS are individually laser tested and certified for accuracy.
Fast, Accurate, Repeatable
Now, You Are In Control
Shipping your body and all of your lenses to the manufacturer is expensive and time consuming. Having your own Focus Test System gives you the ability to make the adjustments you need to achieve precise focus, or to provide the evidence that the service facility requires to effect a repair or honor a warranty.
