A practical photography tip on the importance of play and fun as tools for creativity.
I read with great interest your article on Back Button Focusing. I have a XH-1 and the assigned BackButton button is marked AF-ON (not AF-OFF). The pictures in your article shows a XT2 (I think) and the button is labeled AF-OFF.
Please explain the difference and how to set it up on my XH-1.
Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.
Hi Myron. Thank you for your comment.
To set up Back Button Focus on the XH-1 is even easier than on the X-T2 as you only need to follow the instructions up to step 6. As you correctly point out, the XH-1 has a button at the back which is designed to be used for Back Button Focusing and is marked “AF-ON”.
All you need to do is disable the shutter button from focussing which it obviously does by factory default.
Go to: SETUP MENU > BUTTON/DIAL SETTING
Select: SHUTTER AF > AF-S > OFF and AF-C > OFF
To double check that the “AF-ON” button at the back of the camera is set correctly check your “Function (Fn) Settings”:
Go to: SETUP MENU > BUTTON/DIAL SETTING > FUNCTION (Fn) SETTING (you can also get here by pressing the “DISP/BACK” button for about 3 seconds). Scroll through to page 2/2. The second to last function button is “AF-ON”. Make sure it is set to “AF-ON”.
You are good to go!
I hope this helps!
