HOW TO FOCUS: The best way to get a sharp image is to place an item in the SharpStudio Master. (1) Zoom the lens all the way to the largest magnification. The zoom adjustment is the middle ring . (2) Set the aperture on the lens to the f16 setting (this controls how much light gets into the camera. (3) Set the focus ring to middle position on lens, this is ring closest to the bottom of the lens, it has numbers representing distance in meters. (4) The item will likely be out of focus now, so to focus the item loosen the camera mounting bolt and move the entire camera up or down to get the sharpest focus. (5) Once the item is in focus the camera height is now correct, you can now "fine tune" the focus using the focus ring on the camera. (6) Once your are satisfied with the focus you can move the zoom lever out to set the desired size of the item.
