Autofocus changed how we take photos, making it easier to get and keep the subject in sharp focus. Since autofocus was first introduced, it has become much more complicated, offering different focus modes, focus types, and focus points. What started out as a way to simplify the photo-making process has turned into a complicated endeavour with numerous choices and settings. This book is here to answer all the questions you might have about the focusing system of your camera and various autofocus modes.

From Snapshots to Great Shots: A Photographer's Guide to Focus and Autofocus covers the simple basics of focus: manual focus compared to autofocus, the best focus modes to use, how focus works in regular DSLRs and mirror-less cameras, and the more advanced subjects like: autofocus sensor types, back button autofocus, focus for DSLR video, and what to do when the autofocus doesn't work properly. There is a lot more to autofocus, and focus in general, than just pushing the shutter release button down and hoping the image is sharp and in focus. This book is here to help you pick the right focus mode for all occasions.
