Peaking Mode for Manual Focus

Peaking Mode is an manual focus tool offered in Sony’s newer alpha cameras. It will outline in a selected color the “in-focus” areas to greatly speed up manual focus.

Now peaking level, peaking level is a tool that allows you to see when things are in focus or not. What peaking level does is it takes the plain of focus and lights it up in whatever color you want. So for example right here I have a peaking color of red. I choose that because it happens to stick out quite a lot. But if you’re shooting roses, you’re not going to see the red because it’s going to get lost in the roses. At that point you would then choose yellow or white. But red really does stick out, and again, this is really only for manual focusing.

Now there’s different levels of peaking. If you want to do very critical focusing, put it on low and it’ll show you only the very, very most crisp part of the image that’s in focus. If you have it on autofocus, you can turn peaking level off because this is really a manual focus tool.
