Front-focusing & Back-focusing...Can someone please explain?
Dec 3, 2009

Hi all,

I am sort of new to digital photography, having acquired my very first DSLR (a Canon 400D/Digital Rebel XTi) back in 2007. I frequent this forum a lot, and saw a lot of discussions about front-focusing & back-focusing. When I tried to search for threads that deal with this topic specifically I found nothing. Can someone please kindly explain what front-focusing & back-focusing actually mean?

Thanks,

Alan
