Question of Laziness 1DX related.
« on: September 20, 2012, 10:32:53 AM »
I shoot primarily surfing with my 1Dx. I was using a 30D and had it set up for back focus. I have the back focus custom function on the 1Dx now but would like to turn off focus with the shutter button. What function is this that I need to turn off?

Menu C.Fn5 Operation.   Go into Custom Controls Menu and under the first choice change shutter button half-press Metering and AF start, to Metering start, which is the middle choice.

Awesome, thanks so much. Probably should have done some exploring. Not going to be entirely necessary from land but once I get this thing in the water I rely so heavily on back focus.

Awesome, thanks so much.

You're Welcome!

I just shot the "Right Coast Cup" Surfing Competition in Long Beach NY, using the 1DX, 500mm II with and without the 1.4XIII.  I'll post some shots in the Sports Section when I get I get a chance.
