Does the greater number of focus points mean more will be in focus?

Often asked about Nikon having 39 focus points vs the 11 from Canon and relatedly I had someone comment that they always use all the focus points so that everything will be in focus.

  1. interesting take on the AV mode…I am in the process of stepping out of auto into AV hoping to get into M in a couple months.

  2. Ditto AV mode. I normally always use it – I’m aware of the caveats about metering for 18% grey and adjust accordingly. But only today while practising with my new 70D, I found myself clicking away and hadn’t noticed I was overexposing as my ISO had been set too high. Maybe time to slow down and use manual.

  3. I think the reason slr’s aren’t selling as much is because technology hasn’t advanced enough I know a pro-tog using 5 year old cameras who says there isn’t enough of an improvement in the new cameras to justify another £1500 for a new camera.

  4. I’ll be heading to Europe for 2 months this summer and could really use a travel tripod! My Dolica AX620B100 is just too large and heavy for traveling!

  5. I really enjoyed your mish-mash this week. The part about the 70D and the AV mode were really interesting since I have been taking a lot of images in AV mode. Av mode has worked fine for me but you must be aware of your shutter speed. I have a 70D and I haven’t noticed this issue until it came up on the internet. I still can’t tell if my camera has this problem, but it will be interesting to see how Canon responds. Keep up the great videos

  6. Chimping refers to the sound that you make when your shocked to realize you have the correct exposure. When in Africa be careful when you do this because it is been rumored that it is similar to the mating call of the male chimpanzee.
