The focus peaking isnt displayed like Ive typicaly seen it on other monitors.

 

Instead of displaying some sort of color indicator telling you what is in focus, its weird. No defined color. Its just REALLY oversharpened.

 

I was able to eventually find some info. I guess this is the way it is designed.

 

Now Im just trying to figure out if the part of the image I WANT in focus actually is. When I was testing it, it appeared as through just about everything in the frame had this heavy sharpening effect.

I've not used a FOCUS, but the 702's have 2 seperate modes: focus peaking, and focus assist. Peaking is the sharpening effect you're seeing, and assist is the sharpened color overlay that you're seeking. I'm fairly certain it's the same way for the FOCUS's.

Yup it has both. But I was referring to the focus peaking that has an actual color you can choose, that appears around the edges of the object when it is properly focused.

Thats what I was hoping. But no color option. You can change the intensity though. I dont know. Its just kind of odd working with it.

 

 

Oh sorry I thought you could change the peaking color too..

The SmallHD user guide for the FOCUS I linked seems to show a color option. Are you on the latest firmware, OS3? Maybe it's a newer feature.

Only the focus assist has color.
