Is it possible to see the focus point that was used to take a picture when playing back picture on the camera? (like in the picture below)


For example, if you are taking a picture of yourself with a tripod and want to check where focus was made to be able to adjust.


Or if you only want to understand why focus was not as expected let's say.

Sould be! This is a great idea. Like hundreds more that can be implemented in digital cameras and photography, which unfortunately don't get into camera and software makers, just because the engineers don't have the practice and their senior advisors are only asking for improvements in features that they are used to in their old-fashioned career.

Canon also shows the focus spots in their proprietary software. It's a useful tool to have sometimes.

To some extent, Sony is still learning what photographers want and need in a camera system.

For stills, DxO Optics has a feature that identifies the sharpest areas of the photo. It will show where focus actually is, but not where the camera thought it was.
