Sim­pli fy your fo­cus

NPhoto - - Lead Feature -

Ac­cu­rate fo­cussing is vi­tal, but there are sim­ply too many op­tions with most cam­eras. I like to sim­plify ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing my fo­cussing set­tings. I like to use Con­tin­u­ous-servo AF (AF-C) and sin­gle-point fo­cus through the shut­ter re­lease but­ton. I move the fo­cus over the part of the im­age I want in fo­cus, such as the eyes in a close-up por­trait. If the fo­cus point is out­side of the sen­sor area I can fo­cus and re­com­pose by hit­ting the fo­cus lock but­ton with my thumb. This will cause the cam­era to be­have as if I have se­lected the Sin­gle-servo AF (AF-S) set­ting. The only vari­a­tion I make from this is to use one of the more dy­namic area AF area modes if shoot­ing a fast-mov­ing sub­ject.
