Digital Camera focus idea
9 months ago

Can someone tell me if it is possible to set a focus distance electronically on a camera?

So for example, you set your camera to be in focus at, say 4ft and then when you switch it on you just shoot in manual and now 4 ft is in focus? I want to avoid AF for the kind of shooting I am looking to do (fast moving social photography), yet at the same time am not worried about critically accurate MF with focus peaking etc etc. I just want to know 4ft is in focus. Thanks
