Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L

Post by MikeCT » 18.10.2016 15:28

Last week I was visiting my son and tried using his camera with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L. The results were strange. Any attempt to use the focus arrows lead to complete loss of focus, so stacking was was not possible. I don't use Canon, so I wondered if there was something I was doing wrong?

Probably wrong focus mode (servo or continuous or AI was set instead of single-shot).

Thanks. I had explicitly told him how it should be set, but I am not sure if he really complied.

Worth mentioning is that there's a separate live view focus mode in all recent Canon bodies, so one must activate live view and only then adjust the focus mode.
