Cracking shot but Jeff mate, 100mm! Please tell me this was from a truck window or something!!

Mmmmmm ya no not from the car. I was on foot and he moved right passed me on my right, he knew I was there and made 0 aggressive movements so I was moving back as he casually walked by. As I hit the stops at 100mm he filled the lens and I wished I had the 70-300mm on for about 3 seconds as it is a solid performer as well but the 100-400L is so good.

New owner! Mine arrived today! Wow! It is so totally different than my 6d! Was a little worried about the image quality coming from a full frame, after a few minutes with this beast, don't think that's gonna be a problem, lol! Definitely a learning curve as far as set up & functions &... Well... Just about everything, except BBF, THAT, I got covered! Any tips, hints, settings to guide me thru would be appreciated!

You probably know this but you can set the multi controller button to move your AF point/s around. The AF lever is a new thing. You can set that as well the custom functions to cycle through the AF modes. A great little feature

Also the you can program sub menus in the custom functions for both BBF and * buttons. 4 sub menus. I set the * to activate AI servo and case 6 zone for quick shots just as an example. Just press the info button when you are in there.

A few other tips

iTR ā€“ Intelligent Tracking and Recognition

ITR executes AF by recognizing faces and colors. This can be located on the AF4 (purple menus) screen and can be enabled or disabled.

In AI Servo mode, the camera remembers the color at the position it is focused on first, then continues to track and focus the subject switching AF points to track that color.

In one-shot AF mode iTR basically looks for faces.

The manual states that when activated it will take longer to acquire focus. Iā€™m not sure if a person could even tell as AF happens in milliseconds. It also states that if a face is too small in the frame it may have trouble finding it.

AF Area Selection Modes

1. First there the standard single point and spot focus point modes.

2. Followed by two expansion point modes to choose from.

- the first one enables an additional 4 AF points

- the second one enables an additional 8 AF points

NOTE: All above AF points are active at all times. You can't see them switch on and off while tracking in AI Servo.

3. The 3 zones.

- zone ā€“ enables 15 AF points.

- large zone ā€“ enables the centre or either outside cluster

- All 65 points

NOTE: All above AF points are not active at all times in the zone grouping and 65 point. They will switch on and off while tracking.

If iTR is enabled (on the AF4 menu screen) it will activate in "all 3" zones only. So you may want to keep this in mind because if you go from expansion to zone it not only activates iTR (if enabled) but the AF tracking characteristics change as well.

First, I am not a fan of creepy crawly things. So the advantage is I was shooting with the Tamzooka which has a MFD of about 9 feet. So this little Cicada was quite a ways away. He apparently just got out of the dirt and was crossing the sidewalk heading for the trees.

Thanks so much! I'm going to have to read that a few times to let it sink in, lol! I usually always shoot in AI Servo, I have iTR AF set to "on". In the same menu area, right above the ITR setting, Initial AFpt, what should that setting be? One more quick question, tracking sensitivity, minus or plus? I'm in case 1 for now, at least until I get a feel for this thing!

Yep. That takes a few reads to sink in. Normal learning process.

Case 1 is the bread and butter. It can handle most shooting situations and a great place to start in your learning curve. Instead of changing TS in case 1 switch to case 2 and the TS factory setting is -1. That is the only change. This helps prevent the system from dropping your acquired target for something else in the frame. I shot with TS at -2 for 5 years with my 7D so I set case 2 to -2 and left case 1 at the factory settings.

Of course you try all kinds of stuff. You can set case 1 to -1 and case 2 to -2, etc and test it out. I try to change as little as possible from the factory settings if I don't have to however it is easy to go back. There are markers indicating factory settings for each parameter.

Initial AF pt is only applied in 65 point zone AF. You can let the system locate the closet object where it picks a random AF point or points to lock on and track it. So there would be no initial AF point. Or you can manually select an AF point to start AI Servo tracking. You focus on your target using that point just like you do with single point and then the system takes over and tracks using the 65 AF points.

page 127 of the manual shows different options.

Thanks so much, again! Was a little nervous ordering this camera, worried I wouldn't be happy with IQ as compared to full frame... I'm sooo over that now, lol! This thing is a beast!

Your going to love it Lisablue85, don't look for the perfect setting...there is no perfect one. Just go out and shot and have fun learning the 7DII.

I like the clarity on these. Not today other members are not achieving that. Lots of great shots. Nice PP.
