you must disable the af from the shutter button or your refocusing as you pull the trigger which is not what your looking for. I tried one shot once.. then I switched back to servo. once I start shooting I never lift off of the AF on button and only work the shutter watching where my focus is on the animal and shoot when is where I want it.

I know some dont like the deer down but thats the wild life.

Absolutely that's wildlife. For a dead animal shot it's very clean, hardly any red, no guts hanging out...

quick question for you wildlife people. Do you use a polarizor filter while shooting wildlife?


Cheers,

I don't. Really no need.

Did you read my thread I started about having the shutter button enabled while using back button focus? It seemed to be mixed opinions. I did disable it. I haven't shot enough yet to make up my mind. I am getting my kayak out this morning and taking my camera along. I have some open water below a dam where I can get on the river as the current is keeping the water from freezing. Hopefully, I will see some stuff to photograph. That is a beautiful capture of the fox. I have been using case 2 but I may experiment with case 5

I do not use filters at all, or a flash for that matter. I am not a fan..

To me if you have not disabled the shutter button your not using back button AF.... your only running the af while your tracking or looking through the viewfinder. Completely not the same thing as being in focus and the shutter firing as you ask it to. Your asking the camera to reevaluate instead of fire.

I looked at the thread but there is a lot of confusion and word evaluation going on.. And yes ....I call it a trigger from time to time. Its a actuator for a firing mechanism .... Trigger

Joe if you are from a warm climate you'll need anything from light to mittens or even electric... Its all about your tolerance. I use light to medium weight gloves down to say -30c then I use a truck with a good heater lol

I use a two-layer setup that’s been good down to about 25F before you start to feel it. Lightweight liner, with one of the thicker, wind-proof glove that has the mitten cover that flips over the fingers.

Allows for more dexterity if you’re needing it, and full cover when you’re not. If anything, I’d want to step up to the thicker version of this glove, but fear it might be too thick to effectively handle the camera.

If you have a glove with a band around the wrist, put a hand warmer there on the wrist side. Heats the blood up, keeps your hands more warm.

EDITED to Add: if you live in the arctic circle, you'd need a much warmer setup. My area is cold, but not that cold. It's 45F out today, last week it was in the mid-high teens, but normally it's around the 25-30F mark.

Good advice... I've been known to look 80lbs over weight in the cold weather. Good boots and good gloves can make your day.
