Al Servo

Normally, the autofocus locks onto the subject (or what you are taking a picture of) and stays locked. But, with Al Servo or Continuous autofocus, the autofocus continues working. With a single autofocus mode, if the subject (or the camera) moves, the shot will be out of focus. With Al Servo or continuous autofocus, the autofocus system will continue focusing until you take the photo, so the subject is still sharp, even if they move. This camera setting is essential to understand for photographing moving objects.

I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer with a big passion for photography who loves to take pictures. I’m always aiming to learn new photographic skills and would like to spend more time out in the field or on a photo shoot with my camera.
