Stumbled upon this PDF doc over at CPN Europe.

Not sure if there's a 5d3 resource section on POTN. Mods feel free to move it to such a place as necessary.

Link: 5d3's 61-point Reticular AF Guide (external link)

Incidentally it's the same doc as the 1dx version. Cool.

It is the same guide as the one for 1dx.

I wished switch to registered point could be done with more buttons like * or AF-ON. Right now only LENS and DOF button allow it. On my old 1dmk2 I could do it with the home button (left of * button).

Err... since the 7d, one can switch to the registered HP by pressing the joystick on the 5d3 (and 1dx?). It toggles b/t HP and the last AF point.
You activate it in the Custom Controls menu using the INFO button. Bah... check the manual.

Most of this is covered in the Manual, but here it is shown with a easier to understand language.
Great! Thank you! ;)


Photography is about GEAR and not talent or practice. Practice won't make you a better photographer. Expensive equipment will. =D

Yup. But the manual is so.... dry. Nothing beats examples with images. Also like the tips section.

IIRC CPN had something similar for the 1d4/7d AF system too.
