Re: Idiot question alert - 52 focus points

I get out with a lot of new photographers.  if asked, i tell them all to set the camera in Aperture priority, select an iso appropriate to the light and worry about composition and getting pics of what they like.  if they have auto-iso, even better.  i suggest they set it to give 1/fl or faster.

i.e.: when i drive to florida, i'm not learning how an engine works. i want to get to my destination.  in photography, pictures are the destination.  later when they need to, they can learn a little bit of manual.  no rush for that.
