Canon DSLR cameras come populated with numerous factory default settings. Many of these settings can be changed to customize the camera to our own personal shooting styles and preferences. 

Autofocus settings have defaults too. One of those default settings is Autofocus - Case One. This setting works well ninety percent of the time, but there are instances where a change in the response of the autofocus system to certain subjects may be desired. 

Join photojournalist and Canon Live Learning instructor, Dave Henry, in a program designed to specifically help you in understanding how your autofocus system works. 

This will give you the tools to make decisions that will allow you the flexibility to customize autofocus cases for your specific use. 

Developing better shooting skills and becoming more familiar with the characteristics that may affect autofocus is essential. Customizing autofocus cases isn’t a magic bullet that will cure lack of shooting skills, but it will help you better analyze your subject and the characteristics of each focus case. This class can help you become more proficient in achieving a higher degree of focus accuracy with action images. 

What you will learn: 

• New menu options for autofocus customization 

• The difference between all six focus cases 

• The differences between focus points 

• The differences between focus point groups 

• How Back-button focus can help with action 

• How to customize focus cases 

What is provided: 

• Canon notebook, pen and lens cloth 

• Water and light snacks
