    Reason No. 8 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Continuous AF selected

    When to use Continuous AF

    Continuous AF mode is enormously useful when shooting moving objects and provided the subject is under the active AF point it can also be used to shoot stationary objects.

    However, if you use the focus-and-recompose technique the camera will refocus the lens as soon as you recompose the image.

    So the simple rule is, if you are going to focus and recompose, make sure the camera is set to single AF mode.

    Reason No. 1. Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Shutter speed too low
    Reason No. 2 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Camera shake
    Reason No. 3 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Vibrations from touching the camera
    Reason No. 4 Your Photos Aren’t Sharp: Mirror-slap
