    Default Newbie question

    hi all,

    well this is about the dslr AF TTL points.. as we see AF is auto focus, what if i'm more into manual focus is the AF point in used or the AF points are on my hand in control? (manual focus)

    Thanks all for the help!

    Regards,
    RenesisX

    When you switch from AF to MF, AF is disabled. There will be no AF points selected when u half-shutter (at least for my Canon). You are to manual focus with your focus ring.

    If you are in manual focus, the AF points are not in use. In AF mode, the AF points can be manualy selected though.

    They are only effective in AF mode.

    But the metering will still work for the point selected.
