So I am starting become more and more familiar with the X-Pro1, which admittedly hasn't been too difficult since the X-Pro1 feels like a larger X100s.
As I dive more into, I found a few blogs that discussed the benefits of back button focusing. So I thought I'd give a try:
1. Switch to Manual Focus
2. Press AF-L button to focus lens
3. Take pic
So pretty easy, and pardon me for my newbiness, but am I doing this correctly? I still can't quite differentiate if there's a real boost in accuracy, but do see a boost in efficiency from the first shot to subsequent shots. My limited experience so far has shown that back button focus locks focus rather quickly for a second third fourth etc image of the same subject using the same focus point. With regular auto focus, the lens will shift back and forth to refocus even though the all the shots are of the same subject with the same focus point. So it feels like a mini burst mode with back button focus.
Thanks for sharing your experiences to eager fledglings like myself!
