A55 Wedding Settings--Autofocusing & AF Area
May 27, 2011

For a wedding with the A55, I am thinking one would use AF-A for Autofocusing and for AF Area, probably "Wide," but not sure about that...since if I am not careful I willl let the camera focus on people in background instead of my intended subject(s) whenever I use Wide. That happened to me yesterday, but I noticed I accidentally had Face Detection on, so I am wondering if that was a factor.

But for group shots, I think I will have to use Wide for AF area, and maybe for Autofocusing I should use AF-S. What about, though, when shooting just two people?

I would like to hear your comments.
