RX100 M3 focus peaking blues
Jul 7, 2014


I often prefer manual focussing (and maybe the DMF in RX100).

Then you need focus peaking. A very nice feature. But, the implementation on RX100 is very annoying.

It works just fine when focussing. Then the camera zooms in and the focus peaking works just fine. But ... when the camera turns off magnification, then the image is just loaded with peaking edges, Lots and lots and lots. Everywhere all over the image. There are two problems with this

  1. The peaking info totally covers the image. You can hardly see what you are doing.
  2. It is simply wrong. The image is not in focus where you see the peaking info. One example - even if the thing in the centre is unsharp - and there is no peaking info in the magnified image - the unmagnified shows "in focus" nevertheless.
