A55 autofucusing on moving animals
Feb 4, 2013

Hi - I've had my A55 for over a year, and I feel  like I'm missing something in the settings I should use to actually focus on a moving thing. I see magnificent bird pictures, and I don't seem to be able to get anywhere as the camera needs to latch onto the object , then focus, and by then, the object is out of view.

I'm looking for basics on settings that people use to get the best results.

thanks in advance
