Previously I have posted details of my Landscape Focus Helper, which now allows a 'novel' way to control infinity focus via dynamic LV access to blur data.

This beta version 3 introduces another feature to help you with focusing, namely a focus bar.

The script has all the info you need and here is a screen view of the script in action.



The script has been testing on a 5D3 and can be downlaoded from here: https://gist.github.com/pigeonhill/cd1dbe0191ca1264fc0aa07aaafb515d

This is a beta version, ie I'm still playing with ideas, so I welcome any feedback on the approach and any thoughts on making it better.

Cheers

Garry

Spotted a silly mistake and took the opportunity to add a distance to the focus bar.
