Thanks Luta. Servo tracking? One or all focus points?
I always have camera in: AI Servo, Continuous (6D is slow enough that you can get one shot control with quick press), back button auto-focus, and single focus point (point varies depending on compo). I use this setting almost always even though 75% of my shots are stills/landscapes.
Also, If I do happen to be shooting an event or sport, I will use the excellent high ISO performance of the 6D to my advantage. I will set the camera to Auto-ISO with a minimum shutter speed of, say, 1/250. Then I will set the Auto ISO range to between 200 and 12,500. I then place the camera in Aperture Priority and go to town. It doesn't matter how light conditions change as I move around or the event lighting changes, the camera will not take the shutter below 1/250 and will let the ISO 'float' around as needed below 12,500. I control only the Aperture and just keep my focus on hitting targets with the active focus point. It is fast and accurate and keeps me from fumbling around with the camera throughout the event. Keeper rates are awesome and all photos in-focus are usable in that range.
