So that's why views on my short video went up.
Thanks for sharing @killswitch :D
No, thank you. I have been using your trick and it works like a charm. Baffles me why Canon didnt think of this or anyone else for that matter. I have a 19 month old who loves to be active, and I am able to track him consistently using the trick on your video. So, thank you =D

1st part
Continuous AF - set to DISABLE
No, I’m talking about when continuous is enabled. I just quickly did a “C2” mode for this eye-AF workaround, and seemed logic to pause AF when I’m doing settings via the screen etc. I want continuous AF for the “hack” but the option to pause like video AF(y)

Sorry, in that case it's best to wait for firmware updates and hope that "the hack" will be obsolete :) (fingers crossed)
