Re: Obsessed with the idea of focus peaking. (4 imgs)

Well done, Ron!

Actually, I have a K-30 and for the life of me, I haven't been able to figure out focus peaking. I admit I haven't tried it much, but when I have, I have had no success.

I think where it will really come in handy is on a tripod for landscapes. I usually manual focus for those shots anyway and it's almost a necessity to use live view, and I believe with the camera stabilized on a tripod, focus peaking will be easier to deal with. I just find it very awkward trying to hold the camera still while watching the live view and turning the focus ring. Maybe I'm just inept.
