Are we adjusting tracking sensivity or tracking speed here ?

I thought this is for adjusting the amount of time it takes for the focus to move off the target if something passes in front or you loose track. Or does it actually adjust how fast you're lens focuses ?

It also changes how fast the lens focuses if the object you are shooting is moving at a high rate of speed and your relative distance to the object means your chances of losing the prime target area can fall away.

If I am shooting super slow... I dumb it down a bit to slow so the camera doesn't second guess me. If I am shooting a 3/4 pan like I did in the F1 car shot where the car is coming at me at 140+ mph and up a hill where I only have a fraction of a second to react with the shutter button, I have it set to fast so the focus will instantly track to that target and hit it. My experience this past weekend proved that the focus speed adjustment works WONDERS on capturing the object when the least amount of time possible is available to do so. I tried it on both the 7D and the 1DmkIV ... and in both situations the faster focus worked on 3/4 & better angles coming at me or going away.

One of the disadvantages of shooting with a (relatively) large sensor and long lens. A P&S would handle these situations much better. ;)

Hey Tango - i am absolutely blown away at the quality of these images and how vastly the quality has improved over the past month since i first saw your work online. there is hope for me! i admire your absolute stellar focus and complete determination to master your craft and not let the machine conquer you, since i know of the initial issues you had in the beginning with the 7D.

you still inspire me!
thanks for sharing.


:D

You know what... you are right. At the media meeting today for the Formula Drift event at Road Atlanta, the media director for the event asked which photographers were given credentials by their company or the track... and then he asked to see our equipment.

I held up my cellphone and told him in front of 20 people I have a YouTube page. ROFLMAO!! I thought he was going to burst!!  :o

However... he had already seen my work and the track management had requested me. LOL!! So everyone else not "in-the-know" was shocked! He did pull credentials from several people who did indeed come with Rebels and Kit lenses. His statement was that this was a "Professional Marketed Event" and being a Professional requires an Investment in Professional Grade Gear. So I think I am going to dig up my Old Rebel and throw on the 300mm 2.8L for laughs.

The funny thing about those 45 points... with the IV you can select two bundled together which works great for shooting cars. Really. Otherwise... the remaining 45 points are all spread out just like the 19 the 7D has. So if you are not shooting some static object and absolutely need framing and focus for a particular object, I cannot see the value.

Another point is that anything higher than F/5.0 aperture... the focus points are not cross linked like they are in the 7D. So unless you are using super fast glass and NOT trying to dumb slow the shutter like I do to get the "Hypo-Sharp" (The All NEW description for Tango's Shots that are sharper than just being "tack sharp") image of the entire subject and not just part of it... then the focus on the IV is slower to achieve the same results the 7D gets instantly.
