Hello, fairly new member here. I have built my photography skills from the basics.. developing and shooting BW film myself in High school. Honed manual focus, learned exposure properties and now look for composition. I moved to digital and have been shooting with the rebel line since the XT. Dropped it, and a 17-40L in a river. Replaced it with a T2i and began taking on entry level shoots.. (mostly dinner parties, 40th bdays, Dance videos) spread by word of mouth and pretty unofficial, but it helps fund my hobby.
I am interested in buying a used 40d for stills. For the right price. Then using T2i only for video. One advantage (of many) is that 40d has all cross type focus points... however I dont know how often they would be used. Would they significantly help me with image composition? Is it common to change the AF point setting?
I have been reading these forums for a while now and hear the importance of Cross type focus at all points in the VF. How often do you change the focus points? I usually focus and recompose using AI servo because only my center point is cross type.
