Auto Focus Calibration:

This plugin allows you to do Auto Focus calibration without those expensive tools and jigs which can cost many 10’s of thousands of dollars. 

 

Here is what you need:

  • Build a sturdy test bed.  See our ‘Help’ files.
  • A good quality lens.  
  • 3D Auto Focus Targets which are provide with the software

 

SPT Software can:

  • Create a compensated 3D Target to create a test lens.   Although we recommend a 100mm / 2.8, we do offer other choices - use our ‘Help’ files.
  • Check the camera’s AF Sensors output.
  • AF Calibrate the camera body’s Auto Focus Sensors using our 3D Graph and Compensated 3D Graph included in our software.  
  • You may also manually calibrate individual sensors using Enable Sensors and AF Shift.
  • AF Shift professionally tunes individual lenses to the camera body.

 

 

Shutter Calibration: 

Shutter Adjustment is A MUST DO when replacing the shutter on this model. You do this using our software, a light box and the camera’s histogram.  

 

You can also adjust the X contact Timing, Shot (shutter) Count, Mirror Count and Total Shot Count.  In addition you can see both Shutter and Mirror Box replacement history; last 3 changes as well as the Count and the Date when they were Replaced.

 

 

Auto Exposure Calibration:

Our software allows you to backup AE data separately which is a great feature if you make a mistake or wish to return to the starting point.  Troubleshoot quickly by letting you check / adjust the AE Temperature as well as see the output of each AE cell in real time.  You can quickly calibrate the AE cells using your light box and our Calibration function.  You are also able to adjust the light meter reading and auto exposures using AE Shift

 

 

Main Board Replacement:

Replacing the Main Board requires initialization!  During this process, information from the rest of the camera is imported into the new Main PCB …  required on this model

 

 

Outstanding Help Files!

Just click 'Help' in any function and your Help window automatically opens to that section .. perfect!  

 

We have used many Help files in other softwares only to become frustrated trying to find the right section and then trying to understand the what it means.  We give clear directions with help sections linked to their functions.  You are also able to access all areas of the help files in any function.

 

Evolving Error Codes and Free Updates!

All are part of your software package!  SPT software starts with all known internal error codes and their possible cause(s).  But as the camera repair field links internal error codes to additional causes we add that information to software updates.  Free updates also allows your software to adapt to changes in both hardware and firmware.

 

Lots of horsepower under the hood. Our user interface remains simple and intuitive but there is allot of extra new code under the hood keeping it that way.  Among other things, all this extra code insures that you won't need an incredibly expensive interface tools when doing adjustments.

For many years I have been changing EPROMs to get replacement boards to operate correctly. Having purchased the 40D advanced software for a camera that had been brought in with 10 lands torn from the main PCB by incorrect orientation & forceing of a CF card, I found that this software has reduced my repair time by about 5 hours. It enabled me to download all data from the old board, initilise the new board & load the software. Not only was it a time saving experience, it also enabled me [...read more]
