Thats exactly how to do itI don't have the camera yet, so cannot confirm myself.
But I guess you can do it in two steps:
1. set back button AF to AF-on button and
2. set another button (e.g. star button) to start eye-tracking.
In this way you can select AF point by pushing the AF-on and moving it with joystick to any place you want and then push the star button to activate eye-tracking.
Yes ! This is a nice way to do it. You can set the center point as the starting point, position that point over your subject, and then recompose at will once the tracking initiates.
Yeah once it is locked on as long as the objected you locked onto is in frame it will stay locked and in focus.This is OT so apologies but i don't have the camera to try, once tracking has initiated can you rotate the camera 90deg and maintain the same tracking? Just curious
I have those settings. However:
