Shooting moving subject with focus mode set to AF-A

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

In AF-A mode, the camera automatically recognizes whether the subject is moving or not, and switches the AF mode between AF-S and AF-C accordingly.

When shooting fast-moving subjects with focus mode set to AF-A, sometimes the AF mode cannot switch fast enough and the camera may not continue to focus on the moving subject.
In such cases, we recommend setting the focus mode to AF-C.
