AF lock on canon


#1
Hi guys
Is it possible to have AF and AE lock?

I used the centre AF to focus then I pressed the AF/AE lock. Only the exposure is locked. But not the AF. Then I re composite. The AF never refocus... I had went through the manual and still not sure what went wrong

Do you mean you want the AF to refocus once you recompose? If that is what you want and your settings are default, then it is simple. Just use AE lock to lock exposure, and after you recompose, half press the shutter button again to refocus. Alternatively, you can just set to AF-C and don't let go of the half shutter press when you recompose.

Suggest you read your manual again. Just hold down AE-Lock then half shutter to focus again. It's just camera basics.
