R6 AF setup for video


EOS M6 Mark II
Mar 31, 2016
Hey guys,

I'm interested in knowing whether there is any work around to be able to switch to video mode without starting AF instantly, but being able to start AF during the recording without going back to the menu (to enable continous af from the menu).
If continous af is disabled, I can switch from photo mode to video without worrying that the R6 would misfocus just before recording starts. On the other hand, I have not found a way, to engage af when needed, once recording has started with continous af disabled.

Being able to start video recording with no AF enabled, but then having the option to engage it during the recording would make lot of sense in my wildlife videography.

How do you guys work around this issue?

Thanks in advance.
