Hello Murali Sir,
Thank you for the article. I wanted to start using the back button to lock the focus from quite sometime.
Now I have started using it focus after reading this!
I would like to share the settings I use on my Canon 760D. I switch between these two settings depending on the situation.
- AE/AF, no AE lock
Focus using back button.
I’m mostly on manual mode so I set the exposure myself.
- AE lock/AF
Focus using back button and lock the exposure using shutter button.
This is when I want to use Shutter/Aperture priority and I want to lock the exposure manually, which is by using the shutter button, I go with this setting.
Seems to be difficult in the beginning as we are used to the default setting but this really helps in most of the situations!
