Due to the slight variations in production or after heavy usage lenses can fall out of alignment revealing itself most commonly with front or back focusing issues. Our calibration service will return your equipment to its optimum accuracy.
For Sigma lens owners we are now able to offer a unique Sigma lens calibration service which goes beyond the methods offered by the camera manufactures. Sigma however allow for calibration settings to be applied at multiple focal lengths, this facility is unique regardless of which mirrored DSLR the lens is used with.
This facility is only available with specific lenses. To verify if your lens is included please go to the Sigma Calibration page.
Once your Sigma lens calibration has been completed we will supply a full test report for each lens.
Please note in order to undertake our calibration services our software based solution requires access via the camera’s USB port. Please ensure this is fully working before instructing Cameracal to undertake any calibration (applicable to Canon & Nikon models only).
Please note – Test results – Before & After may not initially show vast improvements. This is often due to the fact the lenses do not always resolve the optimum quality when used wide open as in the maximum aperture. Significantly sharper images can be obtained by stopping the lens to a smaller aperture
If during the test, we find this to be the case we will record images at a smaller aperture to demonstrate that sharper images can be obtained by taking comparison shots before and after calibration.
We also offer a lens optimum test in which we can identify the best aperture in which to shoot at (often referred as the lens sweet spot) and the point at which diffraction occurs.
