I was out shooting with my new (refurbished) 70D this weekend at my kid's soccer game. I absolutely love the camera (at least compared to my T2i).
Question about AF Drive and Selection. I had my camera set to AI Servo and single point AF selection (used center point). I've read through the manual (both short and long) but still have a question about the two.
One option for the AF is the 19-point with "tracking." According to the manual (although I haven't tried it) - you can select 19-point focusing and also select the individual focus point you want the camera to "start" with when focusing.
Is this a better option to use for sports shooting that the method I used? If I am burst shooting - and the kids are moving around - it seems like I would lose focus if the left the center AF point. Should I be using 19-point / tracking - and selecting the center point to start focus?
Everything I've read suggests to get off the 19-point and use single point.
