In order to obtain a sharp image, several parts of the camera must be properly aligned and adjusted.
Critical Focus Calibration means taking time to make all necessary adjustments, at time of service, so the point of focus does not deviate beyond a Circle of Confusion figure of 0.03mm across the film plane.
