To be honest I've only had the camera a few weeks and I haven't played with the custom functions for auto-focus yet. I was using zone focus for the first time (usually single point) and it did great for tracking. I did find that the lens had a tough time keeping up when the birds were flying right towards me, so may play around and see if it helps. It's not the quickest focusing lens in the world, but I've found it to be very accurate.

Glad to hear that the zone focus tracks well. I have not had the opportunity to try it, but will be going back to coast in a few weeks and intend to try it while there. None of my other cameras have it, so I am anxious to give it a try.

Here's a personal example of 'abstract' macro. This one's subject is more obvious than Gus' though.

Hi.Have anybody experience any autofocus failures on the D70?

Welcome to the 70D thread,

I think it has happened on various cameras of mine - but sometimes a weakness of a lens like the 50 f/1.8, but regardless - focus hunting or failure usually occurs in Low Light or Low Contrast subjects

For the 70D, go into the C.fn II: Autofocus (6) Lens drive when AF impossible

choose if you prefer either 0 : Continue focus search, or 1 : Stop focus search

Some from the weekend. I get cool angles, but shooting through the windows at this highrise makes for some funky color cast and sharpness loss...

I'd suggest cropping much of the top and some of the bottom for a pano effect look? I like the shot, but you could always darken the lower closer detail so attention is not drawn to it

I think they look good but since you have Lightroom you can do a few things. The noise slider could be pushed to 25 or 30 easily, with Detail slider just surpassing it a touch (season to taste) - or - set slider to 18 and then use the brush in behind on the first shot and paint in some noise reduction and leave everything else. For the B&W - well B&W is an excellent option for high noise shots (but B&W does not always suit)

Took what you said in and tried my best - also tried to remove the umbrella using only LR4 with the clone/heal

Liking the focus on #1 Gus - very well taken that one.

And thanks for the comp. :)

Paul.

Thanks Paul, it took several shots to get the angle and the focus just right, glad you like it.

Cheers
Gus

I actually really like #2. "Abstract" macro like that really appeals to me.

Thanks Jeremy, I was actually shooting a small flower to the right a little, but afterwards, noticed something was poking in to the frame and catching the light and was drawing my eye more than the main subject .. So, cropped and made it the main subject instead, I like it too, so a happy little accident that opens the mind to new things :D

Cheers
Gus

I can see my EXIF using Photogene on my iPad but anything else I am unable to see it.
