Thread: slow AF??

  1. #1

    Default slow AF??

    today I was taking some photo with my A40. my friend has a G2 which both of us are snapping together. I realise that his G2 seems to be able to get AF really fast compare to my A40. is it really the case that his camera can AF faster or just I am not good at taking photo?

    *but as a matter of fact, I am very new to photography*

    Think the G2 is definitely faster. But how can you compare with a camera double the price? Not a fair comparison, really.

    And there are people out there complaining about the AF being slow in a G2!

    last time I tot the mathod of AF is the same, so there will not be too big a time diff. I tot the price different is in other functions/lens/etc and not so much of the technology to get focus.

    contrast AF requires quite a bit of processing power... I guess G2 has a faster processor... By the way, holding the camera still will improve focusing speed and accuracy.
