Back to Basics: Focusing


In this video, we discuss the basics of focusing and talk about the different focusing modes on your camera. Here is brief overview:

One shot/single focus: Focuses once every time you depress the shutter release
AF Servo/continuous focus: Constantly focuses when the shutter release is depressed (good for moving subjects)
AF Auto: Camera tries to guess at whether or not a subject is moving and will switch automatically between servo and single when the shutter release button is depressed

For manual focusing, it can be helpful to zoom in from live view mode
