    Fixing Bad Pictures: how do I focus on moving targets?

    Fixing Bad Pictures: how do I focus on moving targets?

    Are you using AI Servo?
    If your subjects are moving then you should switch to the AI Servo AF (autofocus) mode and leave it to your DSLR to adjust the focus as your subject (and its focusing distance) moves around in your frame.

    YES

    Have you set an AF point?
    Don’t rely on automatic AF (autofocus) point selection to achieve focus on your moving target. Pick a single AF point for more accurate results.

    YES

    Is Drive mode on?
    Use the high-speed Continuous Drive mode to increase your chances of getting the shot. An EOS 450D offers 3.5 frames per second, for instance, while a 40D rattles off a machine gun-like 6.5fps.

    YES

    Fixing Bad Pictures: manualy pre-focus

    Manually pre-focus
    If you know where you subject will appear, try switching to manual focus and pre-focus on that spot – whether it’s a branch a bird might land on or, as above, the high jump bar. Then just press the shutter button at the right moment!
