Kicked the tires on my new body this morning... unfortunately two times my center focus got moved off-center... not sure how...

The back top right button controls where the focus point goes but I'll be darned if I know how it got moved twice...

I never purposely move it, my shutter is metering only and use BBF for recomposing sometimes...
Anyways, a few offerings from this morning ~

Your joy stick moves the AF point in any direction you like. To BBF correctly make sure to turn AF off on your shutter button or your defeating the purpose of the BBF. I'm betting you moved the focus point while trying to move through menus,...

ah ok, well I might have to re-assign its function since I don't like moving AF points... but that explains it thanks - I was playing with EC for the first time so must have nudged it while pulling the lever (around the joystick) which I assigned for EC.

Mine is set so the large wheel moves EC so if you have the Q button on the EC meter active. so I push Q then roll large wheel to dial EC

I think most of us use the joy stick to move AF point, It all gets easier after you've had the camera for a short bit. The one thing I will add is metering will always stay on centre point regardless of AF point used so at times you will be metering off the back ground with AF and subject point say far right. One of my pet pev's

DP and others, what's your best/fastest method for switching cases?

I've gone back and forth with between going into the Case menu and picking one of the preprogrammed cases, versus having the 3 individual parameters as items in the custom menu and tweaking each individually. But both take time. I wish case selection was in the quick menu, or we could assign it to one of the wheels.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Good question, we have such splendid customization at our finger-tips but custom case parameters would be nice to adjust quickly.

I have my M-Fn button set to cycle through the drive focus mode, ISO settings, EC, etc so that I can make all adjustments without taking my eye off the viewfinder. It would be ideal if the ability to change cases could be added to that menu so that you can easily cycle through the cases and pick one in an instant.

yall went crazy with this... ITS GREAT!!!!

so I did more testing...

I tried case 1, 2 and 6 and also 65 point AF.. I had intermittent issues getting AF to lock on who I wanted it to, in addition when it locked it still bounced all over and didn't ignore some objects... was frustrating but I got some good stuff...

soccer just get out and play.. they cancelled our games which stinks.. our 2nd game cancelled and weather isn't that bad.


I really like this pic of my kid.. it is a SUPER CROP!!!! to which I show below.. and the focus points in DPP are not on my kid!!!!

That is tough environment for 65 point. Too many moving targets. It is just a computer trying figure out what we want to do. For that I'd use more precision tracking methods.

^^^ well since I had my t2i I was always that centerpoint AF AI Servo guy and just caught the moments.. you can see them in my flickr go ways back... and it worked..

I thought the 7dm2 would be light years better and could get away to the single AF point and go 65... I can use center bracket section which I did today at times.. but since players run left or right and can change direction it is just too tough to setup to use say right bracket.. then ball stripped and switch to left bracket... so you always have player with room in front of them...telling the story of where they are going.

I may just go back to my old ways.. yes the 7dm2 is a very nice camera over my t2i but for my needs it doesn't just overwhelm with benefits... still love the camera and with this tammy I'm stoked and enjoying it..

I have yet (prior to the new lens) to enjoy the full bennies of the 7dm2 as the first day I just didn't feel like... WOW THIS IS SO AWESOME.....

Well, getting Ken Block's car to replace your Camry isn't going to make you a better rally car driver overnight. In fact, in the beginning, it may only give you lots more ways to kill yourself. ;)

Give it time, read, ask questions and more than anything, practice, practice, and pretty soon, you'll learn to use and to appreciate everything that makes the 7D2 a beast of an action camera.
