Moving now to a mirrorless camera workflow, I decided to revisit autofocus.  This of course has nothing to do with my aging eyes.  One of the many “new” features some of these powerful cameras have is a feature called Autofocus Tracking.  Autofocus tracking, simply means you lock onto a subject and the autofocus system holds your focus right on the selected subject as it moves around the frame.  While this is a powerful tool when it works right, it is a complete nightmare when it doesn’t.  As with all feature tools, I use it sparingly due to experiences exactly like this one.
