1DSIII * focus question

Recommended Posts

Hello !

 

i've just traded my old 1dII (housing and cam still for sale btw) for a 1dsmk3 in a seacam housing.

I really love this new cam on land, and i'm flying to the indian ocean in a few days to try the underwater setup

 

i have been used to * focus and then use the shutter just to take the photo, but on the mk3 camera,

 

When I set it to use the * button for focus, the focus function on shutter isn't deactivated, and the camera will sometimes re-focus when I recompose and press the shutter. THis might be very annoying for manual focusing.

 

i am sure i have set up something wrong ^_^

what are your C FN settings for this ?

 

Thanks

Alex

Alex,

 

Try this: Go to C. Fn IV.....switch C. Fn IV #1 from 0 to #2 which reads "metering star/meter + AF Start" then hit the set button..... then go to C. Fn IV #2 and switch the "AF-ON/AE lock button Switch" from disable to Enable and push the set button....I have been using mine like this for a few months and I think thats all that is required to use the * button W/O the shutter re-focusing.... if it dosent work let me know and i'll keep looking in my menu....
