X100 close focusing tips? Particularly portrait tips.
Apr 17, 2012

I've had my X100 for a few months now and i'm really loving it, especially when I get up really close to do some portrait work. The problems is that I'm having trouble locking focus at those close distances and it can be really frustrated for me and the model when I have to refocus multiple times just to get it to lock.

Does anyone have any tips to get my focus to lock better? I'm using Af-s with the focus set to the center and I am using the smallest focus box.

Where do you guys aim your focus to get the most consistent lock? I traditionally aim it at the eye but lately i've been trying to aim it at the edges of the face because it seems to work a little better.
