Re: Real World Back Button Focusing?

Afternoon All,

Over the last few months whilst learning photography, I have read & seen a lot about using Back Button focusing (EAL/EFL button), particular with wildlife/bird & some macro photography.

Now up to now, I have been using standard focusing/exposure using the normal button with half push ect....

What Im looking for, is some real world recommendations/thoughts, as to whether using Back Button Focusing really is worth setting up & if so why in real world terms?

(For ref I'm using Olympus OMD E-M1 Mark 3 & do do wildlife & bird (not BIF) and macro)

Many Thanks

Shoot every day for a week with BBF and come back and tell us why YOU will never go back to the old way again. I don't know any heavy use photographers who aren't using BBF.
