Re: What is Back Button Focus all about?


Excellent examples of applications for the Back Button Focus.  Just one additional thing.  Once you hit the back button and lock your focus, can you take your finger off of the back button; since the focus will be locked no matter what other settings (aperture, ISO, shutter speeds) you might wish to apply?  If so, how do you reset the the back button for other shots?  Just hit the "*" button?

Based on your samples, I think I'll try it out.
