Still trying out my new Helios 44M

Here you can see the focus peaking ( the red lines around the glasses ) of my Fuji

Had to look up focus peaking because I am new to the photography world in comparison to you Peter, so this post was definitely a learning post for me and I thank you. The more shots I see from your Helios the more tempting it becomes. smile

Focus peaking in combination with constant live view works great for manualfocus. Do not know if Nikon has it. The Helios is growing on me,love its bokeh and his use of colors.

Apparently the D750 does have in its "effect"mode but they don't call it focus peaking they call it color sketch. It doesn't work in RAW but from what I read you can set it up and then go to manual mode to shoot.

It is not an effect,it is a tool to help you focus manual. What is in focus will be ref,blue or white ( depends on the color you select ) outlined. I have 3 different tools build in to help manual focus, split screen, magnifying glass and focus peaking.it really helps,manual focus is not always easy when you have glasses.

Yes I understand it is not an effect, but just like you said Nikon is not keen into having the focus peaking built into their cameras. In order to  go around that someone is suggesting using the "color sketch" in the effect mode as a focus peaking tool. Once you have adjusted the focus then turn to manual mode and shoot. It's basically a lot of steps that might work or might not. I think in the case of Nikon the best bet is to use the live view and adjust ones focus using the magnifying (zoom in) glass and then once it is locked, shoot.

That will probably work best
