    5d mkiv dual pixel mode

    I was trying this evening to get some bird pics to try the Dual Pixel Raw Mode but they did not cooperate...a nice deer did step out of the woods near the bird feeder so this is what I was able to get.....
    This was 1000mm as I was using the 500mm + 2X TC so I was forced to be at f/8 and I was only perhaps 25 feet away @ ISO 3200 and 1/200 sec

    The dual pixel optimizer in DPP really does have an effect

    If you look at the fine hair around the eyes and nose I was definitely able to see these come in and out of focus as I moved the optimizer backward and forward.

    I would say the focal point could changed by a few millimeters.....could be enough in some circumstances to make a difference

    It was very much like making an AF micro adjustment in the range of 3-5 steps I would guess.

    These are images of a Lens Align device to show the effect of adjusting the dual pixel optimizer in DPP.

    The optimizer tool has the ability to go from 1 to 5 steps forward and backward from the starting point and the overall strength of the effect is adjustable from 1 to 10

    For these images I used the 500mm f/4L @ f/4 and I set the strength of the optimizer tool to 10

    I used the baseline image and made gradual adjustments with the optimizer tool and then saved each one as a separate jpeg. To save time and space I did mostly "front" adjustments moving the focal point closer and just one back adjustment moving the focal point farther away. Again, this was all done in post processing starting with the baseline image.
