E3 AF target selection . .
Apr 17, 2008

I need some help with selecting the "AF target". I think the choices are single point (L/S), and 11 point, and . . .

I've been asked to do some shots in a dimly lit hall of people receiving awards. The photo will be a portrait view of two people (the award giver and award receiver) and my concern is getting both in focus. The "line" of folks receiving will move briskly . . . so, I won't have much time per shot.

I've read on this forum about the E3 "front/back" focus issues . . . hence my concern.

Which AF target would be the best choice for this task. . . and, why ?

Please help if you can and THANKS in advance.

Vancouver, WA . . . (USA)
