The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is an update to the classic 7D model, widely regarded as an excellent APS-C sensor DSLR, aimed at the serious enthusiast. The new model boasts faster burst shooting, improved autofocus, and a much broader lSO range, contained in one of its best-built camera bodies. For stills photographers, the Mark II offers an all cross-type, 65-point AF module that works in conjunction with a 150,000-pixel RGB + IR metering sensor, offering the latest version of the "lntelligent Tracking and Recognition" (iTR) focus system featured in the EOS-1D X. With iTR engaged and an initial focus point selected, focus can be initiated with a half-depress of the shutter-release button, leaving the camera to track the subject as it moves across the frame. The camera's continuous shooting rate is 10 frames per second, previously limited to pro-grade sports cameras.

Autofocus changed the way photos are taken, making it easier to capture and keep the subject in sharp focus. Since autofocus was first introduced, it has become much more complicated, offering different focus modes, focus types, and focus points. What started out as a way to simplify the photo-making process has turned into a complicated endeavor with numerous choices and settings. A Photographer’s Guide to Focus and Autofocus: From Snapshots to Great Shots is here to answer all your questions about the focusing system in today’s cameras and their various autofocus modes.

Then he discusses more advanced topics, including autofocus sensor types, back-button autofocus, and focus for DSLR video.
