Re: Ming Thein found the same thing about AF-C

I want to express this lurker's appreciation for those who contribute to these AF-ON threads.  I have been following them since Ray Soares first made waves. I have tried the suggested techniques and had some success with them.  For the time being, at least, I have settled into using AF-C all the time (landscape and action).  I buy the argument that AF-C compensates for the photographer's motion as well as subject motion.  And there's something intuitive about letting the little black box fly around the viewfinder until it settles down.  My hands are still steady enough that it generally does settle down.

I have continued to use the half-press, however.  I'm comfortable using the Fn button on the front of the D600 for focusing, but unless I'm going to focus and recompose I don't see the advantage vs. using the half-press.

I'm still reading and learning.
