Back Button with Canon G11

Recommended Posts

I shoot 98% macro with my Canon G11 using several diopters. My question is is back button photography possible wit my G11. If so, how? Thanks in advance for any replies.

I read this soon after your posted it looking for some answers because I was interested in doing it on my G7. And I guess it's been in the back of my mind because it just hit me.

 

Unfortunately I'm on the road and I won't get to try this for a few days, but maybe you can let me know if it works.

 

Would you be able to assign "manual focus" to one of the buttons on the back, maybe the Ring Func button? (The G7 has one, I don't know about the G11).

 

Then you could half press the shutter, and once it focuses, press this other button and activate manual focusing. At that point the shutter button wouldn't refocus when you press it.

 

It may be necessary to turn off the option to fine tune focus automatically when in manual focus.

 

It's not exactly back button focus, but it could be a passable substitute.

 

I'll be really curious to find out if it works!
