hello phil, i do wedding photography & i have problem when the bride is walking towards me..while the camera is focusing then the subject already moving towards us..then camera is snapping absolutely out of focus..i don’t think the way you show on this video can apply in this situation because in wedding we don’t have much time to manually focus..please help me 🙁 love from MALAYSIA 🙂

PolarisVideos says:

awesome information Phil. I thought a new how to use “focus and recompose” but now i understand more about how it works and why it doesn’t always work!

zhch15 says:

Don’t! Your focus will shift as you zoom…

igetsmart says:

nice video – Sony offers focus peaking for those who like manual focus – keep videos coming

PbVeritas says:

Is it smart to zoom onto your object, focus, and than zoom back out (to frame the shot)?

tramyead says:

Hi Phil – after auto-focussing, and then you switch the lever to manual focus, does the camera stay at the auto-focus distance even if you let your finger off the shutter release while switching the lever?
Congrats for the SIMPLICITY of your explanations.
Warm regards from Mauritius

Christopher King says:

Yah man I’m going to have to go there on the microphone…. I am working a 60D right now, it does the trick in most circumstances…. but on the microphone what are affordable alternatives to a Sennheiser… looking to move up from my Rode SVM (in situations where I don’t have a hostile subject at least LOL).

Aya Tawfik says:

Very useful… Thank you 🙂

missbeans says:

This was incredibly helpful, thank you! Last week I upgraded from a point-and-shoot to a Canon Rebel, and have been struggling with auto-focus, and wondering what those strange little dots in the viewfinder are! Do you by any chance have any tips for focusing on a dog running around? I love getting action shots of my dog, but it’s nearly impossible to predict where she will be, so pre-focusing doesn’t seem practical and I’m a bit stumped at how to get the clear focused shots I would like.
