Hi Wedding/event photogs I have a question. I am mostly on a 5DM4 and 24-70 f2.8 or 70-200 f2.8 for most of my events. What are the AF settings that you have currently configured on your 5D4 bodies and do you change AF settings constantly during the course of the shoot.

Please let me know your workflow/settings/how or when you change etc for an event/wedding setup. Thanks for all the help.

I'm sure you'll get a number of different workflows. For me, I like the 5D4 for its customization. With most event photography, I'm using one shot and try to have easy access to changing to different point selection modes (like that there's now a AF area selection button). I also like controlling ISO manually, and have the set button set to ISO. If the scenario changes to me needing to track people, I have tracking set to scenario 1. I also have the * button set to switch between one shot and AI Servo (under custom controls settings and the * button, you can set One Shot => AI Servo to hold each mode if you hit info and select "Hold").
