Autofocus Strategies
1

I've been playing around with various autofocus settings on the XT3. My current fav is setting the camera to manual focus but having a button programmed to autofocus on to be able to switch to back-button focusing but also having access to Peaking.

This works great especially when the subject is relatively still...

subject is still AF works great

But I still get a fair amount of out of focus shots when shooting people walking, or dancing, busy street photography scenes etc...

Lately, I've been experimenting with "Sport Mode" and Continuous AF, also with face detect/eye detect on...I practiced this with my daughter running and jumping at the playground and while I did get some cool action shots, there were still quite a few totally out of focus shots.

Does anyone care to share their 'bulletproof' AF strategy?

mildly out of focus...blurry teeth (could because I'm at F1.2?) sports mode CAF

One of the few shots that were totally in focus (sports mode continuous af) also at F1.2
