How do you activate Af?
Oct 20, 2008

Hi

This is a general question for pro (and non-pros) out there using xxD cameras. How do you prefer to activate AF? Do you use the half-press shutter button method, or do you prefer to assign AF to a different button?

I'm just asking while experimenting with my own technique. What I'm trying to avoid is any likelihood that 'snatching' a photo will introduce (some) shake into the shot. Do you find taking AF off the shutter button reduces your tendency to 'snatch'?

And if you do use a custom button for AF, do you find this slows you up when trying to catch fast action or a special moment (unlike the half-press technique which just seems more intuitive)?

Cheers,
gL
