I find AI Servo quite accurate on static subjects with the modern bodies.

I only shoot people and events now. Only because this is what I have finally landed on what I really enjoy the most.

My issue is I only need to go to servo occasionally. So when I change it over I often forget to change it back to single shot. I know this sound pitiful and trivial, but it puts me off in my shooting and I do not always have the time to change it back when I am in the thick of it.

As an aside I still think I get a better focus hit rate in single shot. It’s probarbly a technique flaw on my part

The snow has been gone for just over a month... And I want it back already !!

Either Canon or their rep used to state Single shot AF was more accurate, Servo prioritised speed slightly over accuracy. This was around 2007 though.
Until recently I used AF-ON to activate Servo, while being held on. I have changed to AF-ON as focus, * used to toggle between Servo and Single shot AF.
There are many good application for back button AF for Single shot AF use:

In a dark environment, you may have option to light the scene temporarily, make use of temporary light not under your control, or use the flash focus assist beam to achieve AF, but not at the moment of taking the photo. Back button AF prevents AF being missed when at time of actual photo.

Soccer goalie in a penalty shootout. Achieve AF once on the goalie, all following photos will be good.

Perched bird with lots of decoy AF objects around it.

I take photos of owls at night. A quick torch illumination, achieve AF, then any photos after with the bird in the same perch will be good.

etc

Trying out some higher ISOs. This one at 25600. Taken in Nova Scotia, Canada from my cottage dock. Mars on the lower left, Jupiter on the upper right. The lens was a Rokinon 14mm 2.8. It didn't appear in the list of lenses for EXIF, so I used Samyang, which I think is the same lens.

Yes. Access the Q screen and press the camera icon. Scroll down to AF-ON and enter that menu. When it that menu press the Info button and the "Detail Set" will appear. Here you can instruct the camera so AI Servo will activate on when you press the AF-ON. Also you will see options for Case numbers, AF mode and AF start position (which I never use). You can also set up the * button the same way.

Thanks again... just set up my cameras as you suggested. Works great and now makes more sense to me from a shooting workflow perspective.

I see what you mean though.... how awesome would it be to say assign the exposure lock button in the same manner but with burst mode as well. To me that would cover the 3 main things most would want to achieve.

I really should read the manual properly one day.

I'm still just getting to know the camera but am really pleased with the upgrade from the 5DM2 already.

I am doing an engagement shoot for a couple and the lady is heavily pregnant.

I told them I have never photographed a pregnant woman before. They still want me to do it.

I guess I will just do it like I would anything else.

Just don't pat her on the belly. They hate that (or so I've been told). :mrgreen:

So drawing a smiley face on the belly is a no no? -?
