EOS R randomly moving focus point

Going crazy on this problem: when I let camera hang from neck, when I raise it up again and screen turns on, the focus point has moved. And if I move the camera, focus point blinks and erratically moves from center to new position.

Re: EOS R randomly moving focus point

Do you have a copy of the full instruction manual? If so, have you read and understood the AF system?

I ask because you have not described the AF settings when this behavior occurs.

"I don't rent software. I use Photoshop CS6, ACR 9.8 and Lightroom 6.8 ."

Probably set for continuous AF in the menus.

Re: EOS R randomly moving focus point

It sounds like the Touch and Drag function for AF point movement has been enabled and when you dangle the camera on your chest from a strap, the system will swap to EVF mode and enable touch and drag. Under these conditions, the AF point can move due to the touch LCD being active and bumping into your chest.
