Action Photo Autofocus Tips - Squirrel running up a tree

Check out my blog at www.fotoinusgrobler.com

When taking action photos using the center focus point usually yields the best focusing speed. Focus points are sometimes referred to as AF points they are the dots inside the viewfinder. You can have a variety of AF points, from a single point to multiple points and even having the camera select the points automatically.

I find that the camera’s ability to choose AF points not very accurate. Most of the time I select the points manually. Most DSLR cameras have that option. It varies from camera to camera on how to select the points. Normally you will need to push a button located somewhere on the back of the camera and the turn a command wheel or toggle to move the points. I use the M-Fn button on my Canon and the command wheel to move the AF point/points around the frame.

The user manual will definitely explain how to choose an AF point. Some camera have lots of autofocus settings that can be complicated. My Canon 5D MkIII has loads of settings and options that can take hours to figure out completely what every option and setting means. Some basic DSLR’s have very little options.
