R5: eye AF box and what's displayed in DPP (4.13.x)

Hi

I just received my R5 a few days and am learning its AF's capabilities. Below is an unprocessed picture that I took with eye AF engaged. Note that the red box displayed in DPP is off the eye.

Is the focus a little off? Or is there a bug in DPP when displaying the red box? BTW, I normally stop down (f/6.x or even f/8) so minor issues like this does not matter to me.  I am just curious.

Thanks

Duy

Hi Duy,

Not sure what's wrong with the upload, but no image is being shown.

I don't use DPP much, but you can set your R5 to show you the focus point(s) used during playback which may either help in the first instance, or to check against DPP.  (See below).

Not sure what happened. Let's try again:

DId not show again.  Is that a JPG or  a RAW file?

I copy a portion of the DPP's screen and then pasted it in.  It showed for me.

Hi Duy,

What I do is - capture a screen shot (on my iMac it gets saved to a *.png file), then use the [Insert image] tool from the forum's [post toolbar] to select/ upload the file into your post.

That should work.

Yep, as it happens I've used that technique in Facebook Messenger just this morning. However I don't think Dpreview supports it, you have to use the "Insert image" button.
