With those capabilities come some complexity, however, so if you are new to photography, check out this great video tutorial that will show you the ins and out of autofocus systems and settings and how to choose the right option to get the best results.

Coming to you from Beyond Photography, this helpful video tutorial will show you the basics of autofocus systems and settings and how to choose the right options for different scenarios. Modern autofocus systems are quite advanced, and the options you choose can make a big difference in your keeper rate. For example, when I first got my 1D X Mark II years ago, I was missing more shots than I expected, but after I took some time to dive into the manual and tweak the autofocus settings a bit, my keeper rate skyrocketed. It is well worth taking the time to do the same with your own camera. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
