Re: Inconsistent Sharpness Issue withCanon 5d Mark iv

Yes, pattern is evaluative metering mode.  I use one of either a single point or one that looks like a cross with the center square being the most common but able to move to the outsides of the cross as well.

Re: Inconsistent Sharpness Issue withCanon 5d Mark iv

what program did you use to look at the focal points and focus information in these images? Would love to know how you did this. I have often wondered after the fact where the focal point was located.  Thanks for sharing this.

It is a free plugin for Lightroom.

As a test, try shooting some portraits like you posted using One Shot AF and see if you are getting the same problem.

 

I am always looking to learn from others. I noticed that you convert your Canon RAW files to DNG. What advantages have you found?

To be truthful, I just import them into LR as DNG since it is adobe's format and I use exclusivley adobe products.  I wish I had a more impressive reason!! Smiley Happy

I also exclusively use Adobe products (Lightroom, Photoshop, Illustrator), but I keep the RAW files as-is (Canon RAW).   In that manner, I know that I have the original data as saved by Canon.
