Great tutorials on 5DIII and 1Dx AF system
« on: April 07, 2012, 02:24:21 PM »
Canon's own Rudy Winston has posted some very helpful tutorials on how to maximize the AF systems found on the 5DIII and 1Dx. I found them much more helpful than the instruction manual, and wish I had read them before taking the 5DIII on my first shoot. There's a great explanation of cross-point AF sensors, too. The new AF system is probably an easy transition for 7D users, but for people stepping up from 5DC/II's and xxD's, there's much to learn. I'm not sure if these have been posted yet, but here goes:

+1  I'm reading the manual, but finding it a bit vague.  Hope to learn from these links.  Thanks for posting.

Thanks!

Enjoyable :)

Now, what would you choose for small kids running around? I can think of at least two-three cases I needed to work at the same time...
