AFC zone tracking

Recommended Posts

It isn't clear exactly what the question is

Can you be more explicit as to what settings you are using and what you are trying to achieve?

Normally when you focus and recompose (either using AF-S or back button focussing) the focus doesn't change - that is the whole point of focus and recompose.

I would be surprised if it doesn't change in afc, that is the whole point of continuous focus tracking.

 

Question is, does afc only track what's inside the box/zone? What will be in focus if the subject moves out of the focus zone while keeping af on pressed?

That depends on your AF Custom Setting - Tracking Sensitivity controls how long the camera takes to switch to a different subject within the zone.

But eventually if you are using AF-C and the subject is not in the zone then the camera will switch and focus on something else.

OK, so you need to pan the camera to keep the subject within the zone, of you need to switch to wide tracking mode, right?

Be aware that Wide/Tracking is contrast-detect only, at least on the 16- and 24-megapixel Fujis. I don't know about the 26-megapixel models.

What does that imply?
