Other Information

  • The Testing Guide is somewhat out of date and we are planning a rewrite shortly.  The general concepts are still very valid, but the operational information towards the end of the guide relates to older versions of FoCal.
  • The File Camera functionality in FoCal is no longer being maintained.  FoCal 2 Test Release 2 implements a new form of File Mode which allow analysis of files for AF Calibration, AF Consistency and Aperture Sharpness tests.

How do I get it?

If you already have a license for FoCal, you can download the software at no extra cost from the License Management System – you’ll see the link to the download once you log in.

If you don’t own FoCal, you can purchase FoCal Standard, FoCal Plus or FoCal Pro from the store.

MAC: The software is available as a disk image (DMG) file for OS X, containing the software itself, the target images and documentation in separate directories.

WINDOWS: The software is available as a ZIP file, which contains the software, the target images and the documentation in separate directories.

Installing on OS X (IMPORTANT!):

FoCal for Mac uses the Mono framework and this must be installed before using FoCal.  Please see this post for complete information on how to ensure your Mac is set up correctly to run FoCal.  If you do not follow these instructions, FoCal will NOT operate correctly!

QuickStart Guides

There are short guides available which help you through the installation, connection and first use of the software available for Windows and for Mac on the Document Downloads page.

    • Hi Jon.

      There’s no change to the Canon operation for shutter count display in 1.9.11, so for certain cameras (e.g. the 7D) the shutter count still won’t be available. The problem was due to a change in the files provided by Canon – the shutter count is not an officially supported function and they’ve disabled it for some cameras. We do have experimental builds of FoCal which can report shutter count, but there are some side-effects that we need to work on before we can release the software to reinstate shutter count across all cameras.
