5D III / 1DX : How to directly select AF point with joystick ?
« on: November 01, 2012, 12:17:14 PM »
Hello,

There's an option I was fond of on my 50D body that I can't find on my new 5D Mark III. I was able to directly select an AF point by flickering the joystick towards it without having to press the AF button first. It seems that on 5D III, you have to enter this mode first to be able to use the joystick.

Is this possible or am I missing something ?

Cheers,

The quick way is to hit the "Q" button on the back and select the icon that looks like the back of the camera with 3 lines to the right of it.

The navigate to the bottom right icon and that will be the multi-controller options. The only options will be off or AF selection.
