Today's latest digital cameras are equipped with astoundingly smart, sharp and swift autofocus systems. Take the latest Canon cameras – the Canon EOS R10 and EOS R7 APS-C mirrorless cameras that have been equipped with one of the most amazing AF systems for tracking moving subjects, taking much of the AF capability from the Canon EOS R3

Autofocus with this much ability is brilliant, but you need to make clear choices for AF settings. Even the commonly used single point in the middle aimed at a subject has been given a new way of working by default.
