Canon 7D Auto Focus Issues

Learning how to use the new AF system of the Canon 7D is critical to take good photos, in the beginning many of my photos were out of focus, after a couple of weeks I thought that there was something wrong with my camera or my lens. Here are some tips to take the full advantage of the 19 point AF system of the Canon 7D:

1. Read the Canon Instruction Manual. Don't just glance through it read it!
2. Watch the Training Videos developed by Canon
3. Set you AF Mode to AI Focus
4. Set your Metering Mode to center-weighted average metering
5. Practice several shots with still subjects until you get good shots 

Once you have reach the point of satisfaction with the focus quality of your photos, you can move on to other AF modes.
