Vello LENS-2020 Reviews

Well made, Works

To get the readings you see in the adds you need to use an incredibly low F-stop setting. But after a quick session with several lenses I am convinced my camera was focusing well with all the lenses. It's nice to know that any Pics out of focus are my fault not the camera's

Overall Good

This calibration tool works as it is supposed to. I like that it can be attached to a tripod. The overall layout is simple and straight forward. The issue is setting it up. It doesn't slide out intuitively, and the locking mechanism behind the ruler is difficult to engage. I'll worried that it will break as I force it.

Target with ruler and tri-pod mount is great

By Jeff
Rated 4 out of 5

Pros: + The target in combination with the ruler is great. + Having the 1/4 tripod mount is very useful to hold it steady during usage which is very critical. + Comes with a bag to keep it clean and protected. + The hinges are two part cupped not single piece flexi type that break off. Cons: - The grey card falls right out holder as there is only a very small lip at the bottom and nothing to hold the card in slot. Have to put the unit in upside down so the card does not fall out of the bag also. - In order to latch close the unit, you have to squish between the face, which is right over the ruler and the back of the unit. The problem is you don't want to be touching the ruler and getting it dirty. Neutral: Have no use of the bubble levels as even if you make it level in both directions, and your camera is perfectly level, that is no guarantee that with the target in the center of the image that the target and camera are perfectly squared up (needs to be with in 0.5mm if you want the ruler measurements to mean anything.

Inexpensive way to test your lenses.

A bit flimsy but it works just fine for an occasional lens test. Plus it comes with a nice size plastic Gray Card for setting your White Balance.

Once I have the number on the ruler, how do I compute the micro adjustments on my canon 5d MK IV?
Asked by: Larry
In your camera's menu, find the AF Microadjustment settings and adjust the numbers to compensate for the front-focusing or back-focusing of your lens. Essentially, it's most accurate if you go back and forth between testing on the Vello LENS-2020 and adjusting (throughout the range of the lens if it's a zoom) in order to make sure your lens isn't front/back focusing.
