Default AE-L with AF Locked / Link AE to AF Point

Hi all,

Hey, I read an interesting but short blurb in a English photo magazine about the subject of Auto exposure and its relationship to Autofocus.

My question is what do many of you (K7) users do... K7 allows one to customize user settings, (See C1. #5, AE-L with AF Locked) and (C1 #6 Link AE to AF Point). Just curious as to what you use and what is the best setting.

Many thanks.

Ned

Hey, Ned.
That's one of those things that is pretty much determined by the conditions of the shooting you're doing at the time. if it works for you then go for it but, its not something you want to use all the time in all situations.

I keep thinking of changing it to lock the exposure at the same time the camera locks focus, but never quite get around to doing it. I somehow think it could turn out to be more limiting than I'd want. I leave it at the default, where exposure is locked when the picture is taken. If I want to lock it at the same time I lock focus, I can always use the AE-L button to lock exposure. I'm used to doing that anyway when shooting sunsets and sometimes flowers.
