Software manual focus mode?
« on: December 22, 2014, 01:52:56 PM »
I have a  550d and a lens that can be manually focused in auto focus mode and the manual/auto switch is messed up and really hard to switch. Is there by any chance a way to switch to manual focus with the camera rather than the lens? Basically, just tell it to not focus when I release the shutter? I don't believe there is anything in the stock firmware, and I can't find anything in ML, but maybe I missed something.

Read your camera manual.  Your looking for the custom functions.
