Understanding X-T2 Auto Focus settings
1

I have trouble understanding the way my camera (Fuji X-T2) AF works. There are three basic settings (single, continuous and manual - last one I understand obviously) and first two of these three have additional modes in the camera menu (from 1 to 6 presets number, with varying options for each of these). In addition to that there are face and eyes detection option. There is also a back button focus. With all of that it is really hard to understand what options should one use to shoot clear shots even in simple conditions (for example, subject being baby playing on a bench). I've a lot of shots that are clear, but not on the subject, sadly, most of them focus on background, some of them on random things in the frame.

How to wrap one's head around that? How continuous AF works, do I have to press back button focus before every shot? Or will it track my subject and do it automatically? Or would it only do that with face detection, and then I don't need to press the back button focus to get my subject face (or eyes) in focus?

I'd love if someone could clearly explain it all
