XT1 - how to enable focus tracking?
7 months ago

I can't figure out how to enable focus tracking on my XT1. Although I found no mention of tracking in the manual I was under the impression this feature was one of the things that set the XT1 apart from the other X models. On my other cameras (D800, RX100 etc) I can set the focus rectangle on a moving object, enable tracking and have it follow that object even when it goes offcenter .

I typically shoot in single shot mode. When I set the camera to continuous focus no matter what autofocus area I choose I can't get the focus rectangle to lock on and follow an object.

Can someonee clue me in on what I'm missing here or am I  just dreaming that XT1 can do this.

Thanks for any ideas here.
