Focus Modes

Since I shoot Canon, my camera has spot, AI Focus, and AI Servo focus modes. I guess Nikon cameras only have single servo (AF-S) and continuous focus (AF-C) so this doesn’t really apply. Here’s a fun tip to remember about the focus settings:

  • One-Shot is for when neither you, nor the subject, are moving.
  • AI Servo is for when either you, or the subject, is moving.
  • AI Focus is for when neither you, nor the subject care if your focus is accurate.

Ha!
