Hi all

Now only sony's has animal eye AF. Does it just gimmick ?

For Canon and Nikon without animal eye AF does it hard to shot dog or cat ?


It works well, particularly at wide apertures in continuous focusing when the animal is moving towards the camera.

That said, people have been photographing animals with traditional AF controls for decades and I am sure you would learn to adapt on a competing camera without this feature.

AF features are just tools that reduce the effort in some shooting situations. That does not mean it is difficult or impossible to capture the same photos without those features, it just means you may have to put more effort into planning your shots and being intimate with the other AF modes of your camera.
