Default Re: Back Button or Shutter button?

Yup... that moment when you lift finger off shutter button, camera stops tracking. And the moment you press it half way, camera starts to track. But because of this short break in between, it's all like you would start tracking from beginning, which you actually do. So it takes some time, before camera calculates everything and tracking is long enough to have sharp photo again. I agree this interval is short, but sometimes it's long enough for you to miss whole action... or have it out of focus.

Ok, I figured that's what you were referring to.

Only from last seasons... for this season, if everything will be fine with weather and snow, first shots of her will be in our on-line archive on 22nd of October, when World cup will roll on with first race on Soelden glacier in Austria.
Otherwise here's link to this what we currently have:
