Chris,

You typed in " L+Tracking AF mode "

First off, I do not own any L lenses. Does that make any differences in the search?

Then you said: "find the answer much faster using the "don't do evil" company"

"don't do any evil" You lost me totally on this I have no idea what you are saying with this.....

I simply put: " L+Tracking AF mode " into google -

Takes you here:

https://sg.canon/en/su​pport/8202226300 (external link) and here:

https://support.usa.ca​non.com …page=content&id​=ART116400 (external link)

or here's a thread on DP Review: https://www.dpreview.c​om/forums/thread/37542​06 (external link)

basically It's a live view shooting setting...

You can get into the menu and turn it off...

You can always restore all factory settings if it's confusing/past the point of extreme frustration...

Anytime you have a question, chances are - someone else has also had the same question - so I'd just do an online search as you may find it on here, but you're likely to find the answer much faster using the "don't do evil" company :-D

Google is the "do no evil" company. It's their motto, or something. Quite ironic these days. Results from marksec's Google searches explain the L + Tracking Autofocus setting.

The L in this case stands for Live View. Don't mess with those settings right now. If it's wrong, let the reset put it back. When you learn about settings and find you should use (or not) L + Tracking Autofocus for the kind of pictures you take, you can go back and set it deliberately.

A little bit more on settings. I mentioned in an earlier post that, before you do anything else, spend a few hours watching a tutorial video or reading a book about your 90D to familiarize yourself with all the settings and what they do. Start with the defaults and only change things for a reason. Those reasons will become apparent as you learn about the system.

Your 90D is a sophisticated piece of machinery. If you want it to, you can set it up to make all the decisions for you, and it will do a pretty good job. Most of us want more control than that so we can add our human skills and intuitions to the final result. But to be honest, even though my cameras are fully customized, 80% or more is still at the factory defaults. So don't get too wrapped around the axle by the complexity of the menu system.

I also mentioned "C" modes. C1 and C2 are places where you can save sets of custom settings and recall them fast. A year ago or so I started a thread to poll users on what they keep in their C modes.
POST 19233671

I went back and looked at that thread and noticed how simple everyone's configurations are, including mine. A half dozen different setting changes define each custom mode. You don't have to make it too complicated.

Those C modes are just starting places. You can change settings on the fly as necessary to make the shot you want. If you get lost and turned around, you can start over.

A black swallowtail showed up today. Only got a few shots because the dogs decided to play chase throw the bed and scared it off.

It's a truly great camera. So underestimated.


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.
