This sounds a great quick/easier technique, without keep taking pics & going back & using your PC/monitor. 8) Basically focussing manually using LV.....switch to AF to see if the green dot reckons focus is ok. If not adjust & try again. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/50774257

Edit. Video explanation;Dot-Tune; http://forum.nikonrumors.com/discussion ... er-methods

Interesting, thanks for sharing. Unfortunately it only works for Nikons :(
Still pretty nice for any Nikon user :)

Thought this technique would work for all cameras with AF adjust/fine tune? :?

Do Canon's not have a visual confirmation `dot/arrow...` for focus?

Well at least entry-level cameras like mine don't have AF fine tuning, but I think a camera like the 60D and the more expensive ones do have it.
And while Canon's do have the confirmation dot, they lack the arrows that indicate front/back focusing.

So yeah, I actually think it might work, but it would be a little harder to adjust.
