in this case I want to be in the shot
Seems to me that the simplest answer is to just let the camera run. So you've got a few extra seconds of you walking from behind the camera to the set -- so what? Just edit out that part.
I think the 5D Mark III can do spot metering everywhere (all 61 points) in single shot mode can't it? I can't remember. AI Servo is different.I was wondering about this. Sure it has the 61 point AF, and I can select any of those points, but is the one I select
I use AF on my 5D Mark III. In the manual you'll see that you can choose ONE of any of the 61-AF points if you like. I still use only one point, but I move it around the viewfinder. Sometimes I'll use 4 point expansion (top, left, right, bottom) but mainly I move the AF point around where I know or want my subject to be in the frame. I actually haven't had a photo yet where I missed focus. Like the poster above said too, watch your DOF. If you need to use higher ISO with a narrower aperture, do it! The camera will handle it nicely.Thanks. OK I saw that and had tried it, allows me to frame the subject where I want it.
