Hi ,

Why we can not select the AF Points mode in the live view LCD screen , for example if i want to choose AF Points Zone or AF Point Spot ?

I'm only know that the live view only used one square box AF that we can move up , down , left , and right .

Use Quick mode in Live View if you want to use the AF points. Live mode in Live View doesn't make use of the focus screen.;)

is it a good thing?

cause my experience so far seems to point that using liveview focus is actually more accurate than focusing screens...:think:

anyone can confirm?

I think it's more a preference.

For me, I don't use Live View much except may underwater. Don't like the way needed to hold the camera for Live View. Also difficult to see screen in bright daylight.

What camera are you using? If it's a Canon or Nikon, yeah, you won't get the AF points since in LV mode those cameras don't use the normal AF sensor.

If we need to focus two objects placed in different location for example left and right side ,

because in the live view mode only provide one square bracket so must choose only for one of them .

Thats why , i don't understand why i can not select all multiple AF points mode in the live view LCD screen ?

There is no way you can focus on 2 points if they are not on the same focal plane. If they are on same focal plane, focusing any 1 point will make the other in focus too. So what's your point?
