I've been reading quite a few camera reviews lately and it seems like AF features get brought up frequently. The ubiquity of this subject has led me to believe I'm doing something wrong, or at least missing something. My usual photo taking process, once the scene has been assessed and framed by eye, preliminary camera settings have been set, and the camera has been brought to my face, is as such: adjust my body position to roughly frame the shot, spot meter and lock exposure on what I want to expose for, if this is not already set, then move the single AF square in the center to where I want focus to be, half press to set and lock focus, reframe (possibly wait for the opportune time) and fully depress the shutter for the snap. If the subject is moving towards/away from me I try to pre-focus (usually on the ground) where I think it will be when I'm ready to take the picture. I realize this may seem like amateur hour here, but I feel like if I miss focus or exposure, I'm at least partially if not mostly to blame, therefore I can probably prevent that problem in the future. AF algorithms can't be altered as easily. These new AF features though, seem completely foreign to me and I can't figure out how to integrate them into my shots without shoehorning them in. The latest feature I read about was the ability to drag around the AF point on the rear screen while looking through the viewfinder. It's a neat trick for sure, but how many of you would or do use this in practice? I can definitely see using the screen to select an AF point that's off center if you're mounted on a tripod, but I can't fathom tracking a subject while dragging around the AF point to match it with your thumb. That's patting your head while rubbing your tummy territory! I remember setting up my E-P5 and seeing all sorts of options that made me say 'Oh, nifty!' and then I promptly forgot about them, such as separate right and left eye detect AF. It seems like digging into the menu to swap eyes would take longer than focusing on the eye you wanted, then reframing the shot before pressing the shutter all the way. I'm not saying these are useless features or trying to go old school with a "back in my day" troll. They seem like they could be powerful tools that maybe I should learn to leverage. My question: Which of these types of features do you use, when, and what does your shot process look like? Since can't seem to integrate them into my process, I have the sneaking suspicion many of these advances are geared towards professionals, so if you do (or don't) use these features in your job, what do you shoot for a living? Are any of you as suspicious of these features as I am, or how did you learn to trust your camera?
