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 ?


People have been taking great animal pics for decades, some without AF at all. Does that answer your question?

Very true.  I am sure Canon and Nikon photographers will be fine without it.  But can they use it if it is available?  I think so.

The Eye-AF is just like other automation tools that have help photographers to achieve better results with less effort, things like reliable AF in low light, AI-Servo (AF-C) tracking in sporting events, MF peaking and histogram, just to name a few.

Can one shoot without viewfinder and back LCD? Can one shoot with manual focus lenses without any focus aid?  Yes both are achievable but it would not be without trial and error.
