Hey can you guys help me troubleshoot? I have set my camera up to us the " back button focus". (AF On in the setting for the AF/AE button. I use AF-c single,point in the hopes I baby moves it follows her. I toggle until the focus point is over her eye. Then I hit the back button to "lock focus". Funny thing is, I never hear a beep to indicate focus is locked like I hear in auto mode. Even if I think I see the focus indicator showing focus. Also. If I move the camera or she moves, I don't see the focus point follow her, ever. If I switch to AF-a, 39 point, I get the same results. I am shooting with natural light here in the Midwest from a window. Using 1/250, f2, and a high ISO. Is something wrong?
I just started using this method but I will say I am not very smooth with it. I am finding it cumbersome to have to initiate focus with the back button, toggle and then go back to the back button. Perhaps this gets better with practice / muscle memory.
