1D MK IV AF servo
1

Hi guys,

Just bought a new to me 1d MK IV and am trying to figure out the AF servo tracking. When I watch the Canon videos it says that I can half press the shutter button to focus on the subject I want to follow then the red square should actually track the subject without me having to move the camera. However, when shoot action it is not doing this in the viewfinder. The red focus square is just staying put where I focused.

Any tips on settings? In the official canon video I see the red square following skateboarders, surfers, etc. quite rapidly and the guy is not moving the camera at all, just half-pressing to tell the camera what subject he wants to track and that is it.

Canon EOS-1D
