Re: Release Lag Time, C-AF lock, and IS

Release lag time pre-cocks the shutter in some way and holds it open using battery power (electro-mechanical latch or something?)  I have tried it but not seen any real difference in lag in my work

CAF lock on the other hand I do have positive experience of and always now have it set to Normal when shooting BIF or other action with a confusing background

If you look on my website at the Hawk conservancy trust galleries you will see several shots where small and large BOP have been followed through, in front of and behind obstructions whilst keeping focus lock (I have tried it in High but haven't spotted any noticeable difference in results, others may have more experience of this they are willing to share?)

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
