| p.1 #19 · 5D3 Back Button Focusing Question |
How do you back button focus while metering with the shutter release? The "AF-ON" button will focus and meter but I want it to just focus with metering with the shutter release. I'm sure I could do this with my 1D2n. Thanks,--Eric.
Gosh I wish I had my camera with me. I can't remember whether you can select just the AF and not metering on the AF-ON button. If it can be done, it would be via the CFn2 Custom Controls menu. I know that you can assign the shutter button half press to be just metering. I'm just curious why you would care whether the AF-ON button, besides focusing, would also does metering. When you press the shutter button to take the photo, the camera will re-meter anyways if you set the shutter button half-press to metering?
Edit: I verified that the AF-ON button cannot be programmed to just focus. It focuses and meters. I'm not at all bothered by that, though.
