Canon 5d Mark iii Help with focusing
Jan 20, 2013

I seem to have difficulty getting a focused picture when there are two
or more people in a shot. Two people I might get lucky once in a
while. Three or more, I have no chance. What happens is, the camera
focuses on a particular spot and the rest is somewhat blurry. I have
tried a few settings and gone to automatic at times-and I still miss.
Can someone shed some light and point me to a particular setting Or something I am missing. I am sure Depth of field has a role in this.

My equipment is the 5d Mark iii, 85mm 1.2, 24-70 2.8, 50mm 1.2 and a
70-200mm 2.8. They are all Canon lenses.
I know each lens would pose a different set of settings but if you
could pick one, I'd appreciate it.

My last outing was last night-my nieces sweet sixteen. It was a dark
club but I used the 600ex-rt flash.

please break down the steps and terminology as best as you can!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III
