How to do: Auto Focus vs. Manual Focus

I know, ” AF is better!”… but sometimes AF sucks;) If U think „no, no, no…manual focus is not for me”, U have to try it.

Set focusing distance on x [cm], now look in the viewer in Your camera and move Your body (with camera in hand of course;)
 forward and back (with shuter buton presed in 1/2). When object in viewer is sharp pres buton stronger. It’s really good method. It’s easier take a sharp photo, and this metod is faster.  Often, AF can’t pip in good point, what is very important,  extremaly, in macro photography.

Remember, when U’re looking for camera for macro, U need manual settings of exposition and manual focus. Without this things will be hard…
