Using the Local Picker in the Histogram
One of the most popular and important features on the Leaf Aptus-II back is the Histogram tool. While just about any camera may have a Histogram tool, Leaf Aptus-II digital backs are unique in their use of a local picker tool that enables you to check contrast in especially dark or light areas of your image. An additional unique to Leaf advantage is that the Histogram can be resized to cover the full screen while still allowing you to see the image.
Step 1: Access the sub-menu with a long tap anywhere on the image.
Step 2: Display the Histogram for the specific image on your back by tapping the Indicators button.
Step 3: Enlarge the Histogram to cover the entire image by tapping the appropriate button as displayed below. Please note that this stage is optional meaning that the local picker can also be accessed without enlarging the Histogram.
Step 4: Tap the local picker icon
Step 5: Tap anywhere on the image to access the reading for that specific point.
Example: Shadows Display on Histogram.
Example: Highlights Display on Histogram.
