I am often asked about reviewing focus points in Lightroom, until now it hasn’t been possible. Canon’s own DIgital Photo Professional (DPP) does provide the feature but in general DPP doesn’t provide nearly the power or efficiency that Lightroom provides.

Chris Reimold has created a FREE plugin that now allows you to see focus point information.

Can be useful for diagnosing focusing issues or satisfying your curiosity.

 The Stars above Vis Harbor. I loved the town of Vis and the island of Vis - lovely quiet little place off the coast of Croatia. See more of it including an animation of this star stacking AND one angry hooded crow that really wanted to take out my drone! http://photorec.tv/croatia Captured with the #GH5 and 12-60 f/2.8-4 Lens | 41 exposures of 60 seconds in length - done in camera - the GH5 allows up to 60 second shutter speeds. Nifty!
 Trailer park girls be like… Part of the Sony set for shooting last week at #SonyKandotrip Thanks to @artbyadelaide for being awesome. Captured with the #Sony #a9 and #2470Gmaster
 Sony has announced two new lenses and I have had early access to both, shooting on an a7RII and a9 and have sample photos and thoughts on the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G Ultra Wide-angle. Watch by clicking on through my profile link or visiting http://photorec.tv/sonywide

  1. This is also available in Aperture, with no plug-in. Too bad that Apple decided to abandon their photographers. It would surely been a serious competition.

  2. This is exactly what I need right now! I usually use ZoomBrowserEX, but it doesn’t show focus points in anything but JPG. Lately, the bird shots I’ve done have been in RAW only, because it doubles the burst rate compared to JPG+RAW. So, I’m assuming this works for RAW? I’m going to download it and try it now.

  3. No Photoshop plugin? Maybe this is because it only works on RAW images? I am a PaintShop Pro and Rawtherapee user and don’t really want to use Lightroom. I’m surprised that this plugin isn’t available in a Photoshop-compatible version.
