Here's a presentation that will hopefully uncover some of the mysteries that, to many SLR users, lurk in their Canon EOS SLR camera's Autofocus system. We'll begin with a non-technical explanation of the fundamentals of AF operation, along with practical, everyday applications for the different settings on your camera. Some common "problem" situations, and tips on how to get the best results when you're confronted with them, will be discussed, too. We'll then dive into some of the different options, and even Custom Functions that are available in some EOS models, that can be used to change how AF works, allowing users to work quickly and tailor the camera's AF system to the way they like to shoot.

You'll come away with a better understanding of your camera's settings and capabilities and more confidence that you can step-in from time to time and really optimize the AF system in most EOS cameras for the subject matter at hand. If you've ever really wanted to have greater insight into how your AF can be used to its maximum potential, this evening's presentation is a potentially a big step in that direction for any Canon EOS SLR owner.

    Or these can be web seminars. That takes traffic/drive/parking out of the equation.
