  • Use frame rate L (6fps) and never H (11fps). The concept of C-AF does not fit to frame rate H at all (where only the first shot has AF and AE lock) .

Why do you say so? Logic suggests that with H frame rate you would get more frames to choose from compared to H, all within the same focus and exposure settings. That independently if H or L works better for the particular application, that's another story.

If you have your camera set to L frame rate while using C-AF, the camera will continue to perform C-AF while taking pictures, and it will do this at up to 6.5 frames per second. If you have your camera set to H frame rate, then the camera disables C-AF while your shutter button is depressed.

So it depends, really, on if your subject is changing distances on you during the captures.
