Ok, AI Servo mode...selecting a center 5 or 8pt cross type focus on my moving subject. lock focus, why don't the points track the subject outside the middle of the view finder? another words...In all the tutorials I have watched(simulated I think) It shows the the focus points tracking your moving subject all around the view finder.
In the manual it states to manually select a focus point in 61 pt focus mode? If you go to 61 pt focus mode you can then toggle to individual focus points but once again you never see tracking leave that area.. What am I missing folks?
Thanks for posting.
If you are using AF point expansion or selecting a zone in the center, the AF point will not track outside of that expansion area or zone. To have the AF point track all over the viewfinder area, you need to set the AF Area Selection Mode to [61-point Automatic Selection AF], then set the starting AF point. To do this:
If you switch the AF Area Selection Mode to [Single-Point AF] and select a point, it will only track on that point. You must set the AF Area Selection Mode to [61-point Automatic Selection AF], then use the <Multi-Controller> to set the starting point to accomplish what you are trying to do.
Also, keep in mind that focus must be achieved at the manually selected starting point before it will track elsewhere.
