I apologize if this subject was already covered.
I recently upgraded from a Canon T2i to an 80D. The T2i allowed me to use autofocus even in the manual modes. I have been unable to figure out the 80D and if it will allow for autofocus to occur while in Manual, TV, AV, or P modes.
Is there a way to set the camera to where I can autofocus while using Manual Mode?
Solved! Go to Solution.
That's what I thought as well, but I have a EFS 18-135mmIS lens attached to my 80D camera now and the lens is set to AF and when my camera is in Manual mode, Tv, Av, and P it does not autofocus. I have to manually focus my lens to get the subject in focus. My lens autofocuses just fine when it is set in the other modes, C1, C2, Auto, etc...
I'm hoping it's a setting in the camera that I am unaware of, but I am not certain.
I solved the problem. In the C.Fn III: Operations / Others Custom Controls the Shutter Button half-press was set to metering start so I switched it to metering and AF start.
Thanks for the replies nonetheless.
What tripped you up is the customary setting if you're using back-button focus, because you don't want the shutter button to override a focus setting obtained via the back button.
