How do I lock focus in Live View mode?
Apr 19, 2009

I feel a bit stupid, as I feel I should know the answer myself. How do I lock focus using Live View?

With the hinged screen on my E-30, I use Live View a lot more than I used to.

Normally I only use the center focus point and recompose after locking focus. But in Live view it dont work that way. I lock focus, recompose and press the shutter. But the camera insist on focusing again, often destroying my shot. And by the way, I know manual focus is great using Live View.
