Pro Capture - suggested enhancement
3

I would like to see Pro Capture be made available through a back button press.

I find it difficult to hold a shutter half-press for long periods. For this reason, I use back button focus for CAF (which also has the advantage of activating syncIS) while focusing on a sitting bird waiting for it to launch.

When in the Pro Capture mode, holding the half-press is difficult and inadvertently moving into a full press results in a large number of unwanted exposures. With silent shutter it is hard to notice that one has done this.

If one had the option to have a single back button press-and-hold to activate CAF, IBIS, and Pro Cap it would be easier to control when to transition from buffering to saving images by a full press of the shutter.

I would think this might be possible through a firmware update.

What do forum members think?
