| p.1 #1 · Need help with AF options for moving subjects on 5D3 |
Okay, so my daughter is 21 months old now and becoming a lot more mobile. I don't have much experience shooting moving subjects, and so far my keeper rate has been very low, so I could use some advice. A typical scenario might be we're outside and she's running toward me or past me, and I want to track her and take a series of shots that are all in focus.
I have a custom setting with AI Servo, aperture priority, minimum shutter speed of 1/250, auto-ISO and Case 1 in the AF config tool. I've tried using f/2.8 and haven't gotten good results; is it unrealistic to expect the 5D3 to be able to focus accurately on a moving target with such a narrow depth of field? (I realize it depends on the lens; right now I have a Canon 24-70 II, 50L and Sigma 85/1.4.)
Would a different Case (i.e. Case 2, or maybe 4/5/6) be better?
Any tips you could offer would be appreciated. Thanks.
