From Canon Professional Network: Canon has produced a new version of its AF Setting Guidebook for the EOS-1D X DSLR designed for smartphones and tablets, which is now available for download on CPN.
As well as being designed specifically for smartphones and tablets this latest version of the Guidebook has been fully updated in line with the EOS-1D X firmware update Version 2.0.3 that enhanced the camera’s AF, exposure and customisable options.
The 1D X was the first camera to feature menus which described the AF functions in detail, including example uses for each function, thus making the complicated task of setting up the AF easier. The 138-page guidebook explains all of these menu settings and is packed with illustrations, menu screen images, photographs and AF point overlays, so it’s an invaluable guide for photographers who want to get the most out of the sophisticated and customisable autofocus system within the EOS-1D X. Now you can take it everywhere with you on your smartphone or tablet.
The in-depth guidebook offers detailed explanations of how to use the various high performance features of the camera’s 61-point AF system, including introductions to the features of the AF system of the EOS-1D X and AF setting operability.
The guidebook is also separated into dedicated ‘click-through’ chapters (and sub-chapters) for: AF Configuration Tool (Presets), AF Configuration Tool (Parameters), AF area selection modes, EOS-1D X 61-point high-density reticular AF cross-type points, Release property settings during Servo AI, Utilizing the AF point setting and registration and Using ISO Auto.
