Hi,

I was wondering what AF settings do you use when shooting in the studio, especially vertical full body shots.

As we all know the perfomance of the far left and right AF points is not the same as the center ones, so I was wondering if when trying to get a perfect focus on the subject head, when shooting vertical full body portraits it would be better to use one of the center AF points and recompose, or use one of the far right AF points without recomposing?

I assume AF-S works better than AF-C for studio shots, doesn't it?
Your reply will be appreciated.

Regards,
Peter
