Thread: Sports Photography Using Dual Pixel Auto Focus in Live View Mode. Thoughts?

  1. #1

    Default Sports Photography Using Dual Pixel Auto Focus in Live View Mode. Thoughts?

    Has anybody tried shooting sports in live view mode with a Canon camera that has the dual pixel auto focusing?

    I was wondering how it compares to shooting sports through the viewfinder, i.e speed & accuracy etc.

    Thanks.

    Not tried live view for sports, it is fine for static subjects, landscape, macro etc but for anything that moves where of course you need to use panning, I would think that nothing beats the viewfinder view.

    I would agree with that. I believe that you would also loose the AF tracking and focus point switching options if they are available on your camera so the performance would be inferior.
