Re: a7 iv tracking too slow?

I just viewed the famous Mark Smith youtube , he never uses the tracking. he still uses the traditional DSLR AF-C.

I also found post #6 in Sony A9ii AF Tracking - FM Forums (fredmiranda.com)

so, basically according to AGeoJO's comment :

1.if using tracking , the initial focus has to be stationary , then it will track well even subject moves later.

2. if the subject already moved, the tracking will not work well. in this case, e.g. BIF, he prefer use the traditional non-tracking

further search I found another person (arbitrage) does not use tracking for moving subject, Which AF mode for tracking small birds with A9? - FM Forums (fredmiranda.com).
