Is that the only program that will tell me?

Actually, there is no guarantee that it will tell you where you actually focussed. All you can tell is which focus point was used. If the camera moved, at all, between focussing and the shot being taken, such as focus and recompose.... Zoombrowser will not show you on what/where you originally focussed.


Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.

Not trying to hijack the thread here but this is something I was wondering as well about Lightroom 2 will it show you the foucas point used? And will LR2 let you zoom in to a photo without going all the way to the editor?

Lightroom 2 cannot show Canon focus points. The only programs I know that can show focus points are ZoomBrowser, Breeze Browser (based on the Canon SDK), and PhotoMe.

To the original poster: There is no indication that any focus points were activated in the posted photo.
