I guess I never noticed it with all the Canon cameras that I've used but now that I also shoot a Nikon D800, their "Joystick" to move the focus point is continous. If you hold it down in one direction, it will auto repeat. In fact it acts just like both cameras act when moving the focus box around the live view frame. Is there any way to set the Canon 5DIII to auto repeat in the viewfinder mode just like it does in live view?
ditto on this, may have to poke around the manual again to see if there is a setting for that.
On mine, the joystick is really easy on the first move, but it is touchy and just kind of figured it's something I will get used to in time. When I try to move the Af points across the screen it's real easy to mistakingly push down on it, and poof its off to the center point -
My Joystick has not fallen off but I would welcome helpful advice on programming the AF home setting.
Currently when I push down on the joystick, AF returns to the center sensor and a second push switches back to the previous AF sensor which drives me crazy. I want the AF home setting to work every time, not every other time.
Can it be programmed that way ?
I hope the sensitivity is in fact just something to learn and get used to and not a sign that my joystick will pop off. what batch?
