While some of my rigs are spot on, others have needed front- or back-focusing corrections as high as +/- 12 units.

      Ever since the introduction of digital camera bodies that feature micro-adjustments for individual lenses, folks--including me--have been searching for a quick, easy way to make those micro-adjustments. When I was working on the 7D and the Mark IV User's Guides, I worked hard on developing a make-it-yourself cardboard rig that was a big improvement on the original version. But in reality, it did not offer the needed precision. And in addition to the extremely low cost, the rig took up lots of space--heck, it was huge, and using it was tedious.

      Hi all,

      We've had an overcast couple days here in NJ and I was getting some serious cabin fever so I headed out to a local wildlife preserve.

      Hi Guys

      A couple of Wandoo (White gum) I though worth a shot. Wandoo trees are common locally, their timber is a wonderful hard dense wood
