[WONTFIX] Movie autofocus like t4i
« on: July 16, 2012, 12:49:20 AM »
Now that one of these cameras has a movie auto focus ability is it possible to port the ability over to other models? And to allow normal lenses instead of the STM lenses?

I'm not a Dev. I was just wondering if its on anyone's radar for future projects.

I would think there would be a way to lock shutter, aperture, ISO, and WB and have the camera search for focus.

maybe if we figure out how 650D does it. I don't see why its not possible as ff already works. Just auto  focus in live view for me really sucks.

Hmm... maybe have it work like track focus + follow focus ability.

User controlled
Press focus in one direction with variable speeds.
Focus stops when highest focus/edge sharpness is achieved in the box.

It was there, was unreliable, nobody used it, nobody was unhappy when I've removed it.
