    1. Thanks, it's actually out of necessity, I have the focus point in the center. Posted 2 years ago
      1. Did you ever try the recompose technique: 1) center focus, hold release button halfway down 2) recompose whilst holding button still halfway down 3) press through. Not sure how/if that works on your specific camera. Posted 2 years ago
