Calibrate most Canon and Nikon cameras and lenses with FoCal Pro Lens Calibration from Reikan. In addition to the software license, a 150mm standard hard target is included to provide the most accurate calibration. The straightforward software runs on your Windows or Mac computer for added convenience. Using your camera's USB cable, FoCal Pro connects and operates your camera remotely, capturing test images, downloading and analyzing each image in real time.

In addition to the auto focus calibration, FoCal Pro supports focal lengths over 400mm, focus consistency, aperture sharpness, analyzes for dust, and compares your results with other FoCal users around the world. Calibration and test results are stored and archived for later review.

Setting up the calibration is easy; simply attach the included FoCal Target to a wall with your camera set up on a tripod set to live view for accurate alignment. As soon as the target is set up, the automatic focus calibration process takes over providing a quick and error free result for up to 5 cameras at the same time.

FoCal's software at the moment will not support Canon cameras running under macOS 10.13 High Sierra, but will have full support in the near future.

    Pro Lens Calibration is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides Very Useful Information The product requires a somewhat more meticulous setup than I would have thought. Once you get it setup correctly with good lighting the results are very useful and repeatable. The calibration made a noticeable difference in the sharpness of my images. I had my fine tune adjustment set to -5 initially using one of the cheaper ruler targets but once I ran the calibration software my fine tune was set to -16. I was surprised by the difference between the two methods and equally surprised by the excellent results. The software was very consistent too. In summary, not so easy to setup, but once setup correctly the results are totally worth it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Focus consistance only fair I purchased this to help semi automate my focus calibration of my Sigma lenses with Sigma Dock. I found the consistency of the result a bit erratic. Some times I could dial in the offset and retest and get a zero recommendation...which is what should happen yet other times I would get a new recommendation of a fairly large offset. I could tell when this was going to happen because only about 20% of the time was the initial focus picture as sharp as I would have expected after entering the offset into the lens. I was using two incandescent light fixtures to illuminate the target so I don't think that light was the issue. I ended up reverting back to the angled ruler method and achieved repeatable results. The techie in me so wanted this to work out but I spent way too much time playing with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product - a little tough to setup for Nikon Very helpful product. A little difficult to setup though. Specifically, the recommandations on how to setup my Nikon camera left me fiddling for around 30 min every time. (And I am one of those rare people who actually read the Nikon manual). If this instruction issue was resolved, I would have given it 5 stars. The program is very good for measuring center sharpness, however, to my knowledge does not measure corner sharpness. Still a useful buy. And in my opinion a must-have when you are buying 3rd party lenses which do not have the track record and quality control of Nikon or Canon lenses.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Customer Service???? Not sure if it even exists. I've had this software for a few weeks. I tried testing my Canon 24-70L f2.8. I successfully tested at the 24mm fl but when I tried testing it at 70mm the software crashes, every time. I opened a support ticket with Riekan, but even after a few follow up contacts on my open ticket I have still not received a response from their support. At least telling me to buzz off would be better than no response at all. Ridiculous. I'll be looking to see if B&H will take this back.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Update To My First Review I normally don't change my review drastically but this company's product and not enough support has made me to update my first review. With original version of the software I had trouble calibrating my Nikon 28-70 f2.8 lens when focal length was set to 28. I contacted the company and mentioned about the error massage I was getting, they got back to me within reasonable amount of time and told me that they were working on a fix and a software update would fix the problem! and yes they came up with software update about a month later (Version 2.08 M for Mac) which fixed the issue with Nikon 28-70mm lens but now software behaves very erratically and comes up with lens correction that is not confirmed by images taken with that correction!! For example on my Canon 24-105mm lens with 5D3 comes up with calibrations -5, -6, -7 at 105 mm focal length but when I set the camera to average correction of -6 images taken at -6 is not as sharp as 0 calibration setting. I contacted the company through their support web page and all I got was an automated response! so far it has been a month since I contacted them and still no response. I should mention that I followed all the requirements for the test and still ended up with bad results. Now I regret giving them 5 stars on my first review.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I purchased this product and installed it on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit machine that is otherwise rock solid. I attempted to calibrate 3 Nikon lenses to my D800E. The software gave consistently inconsistent results, when it would stay running. The software crashed on a very regular basis while attempting to calibrate all 3 lenses. In the hours spent trying to interpret what results I could get with the software, it showed very significant focus offsets needed for each lens. I had zero confidence in these results, so I opted for a much more simple and straightforward approach. I purchased from B&H the Datacolor SpyderLensCal Calibration Aid. Using this product was extremely easy and straightforward. Using this approach showed that all three of my lenses required no focus calibration offset whatsoever, and since I was using my own eyes to evaluate the focus results, confidence was high. B&H graciously allowed me to return the FoCal product for a full refund. Your mileage may vary, but I can not in any way recommend this product. B&H on the other hand, receives my full endorsement as does the Datacolor Spyder product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessive Compulsive? Not me. I shoot with the D800E. My go to lenses are the Nikon F2.8 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 and the Zeiss Apo Sonnar 2/135. I like sharp high resolution prints. I print with the Epson 3880, with the majority of my prints at 17 X 22. Now that the FoCal Pro is available through B&H, I decide it was time to buy the software. It was some of the best money I have spent. I took my time getting acquainted with the software. I read the manuals and viewed some of the training videos. I then picked a primary lens, my Nikon 300m F4.0, and played around with the software and settings until I knew what I was doing. Once I was comfortable I set out to calibrate all my lenses(8). The entire process took under 3.0 hours. Three of the lenses were zooms so I calibrated the long and short lengths. For example, on the 70-200 I calibrated 70 and 200. A lot of the time was spent changing the lighting and target distance for each of the lenses. Once the target was acquired the software did the rest of the work. Make sure you are real clear on target acquisition. That is the hardest part. Once you get it, it's a breeze. I ran the calibration a few times on some of the lenses to make sure I was getting a good read. Did I mention I was obsessive compulsive? One of my lenses is front focusing a lot. And I mean a lot. I know so much more about my lenses and how to work with them to get the sharpest images possible. That makes me happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than using targets This program is an excellent value. I've found targets to be very difficult to work with for any degree of accuracy and repeatability. I bought the Pro version and use it on a Canon 7D and 7DII and several Canon lenses from 10-22 mm to 100-400mm. to include the 1.4 extender. The program provides a great deal of information fairly quickly once you get it set up. I had a problem with the older 7D and FoCal responded by email in two days and it was a simple camera setting. The program is fussy about setup as you would expect - I went to an old survey tripod to provide a stronger base and if you are really serious you might want to attach the camera to a solid bench. So far I've run all lenses through twice to check on repeatability as well as field testing for the past three weeks. I was really pleased with the results particularly the 100-400. I had a good idea what was going on by target tests but this program really put the lenses spot on . . . (except for temperature and a host of other variables that may affect focus). In short, my focus quality took a big step forward thanks to this program.
