Our modern cameras are like computers with so many features that can help you take better photos. But how much should you trust the camera to do the work for you and how much control should you retain? In this video Adrian Cho talks about how he uses his cameras for wildlife photography. He shoots fully manual exposure, rarely uses tracking autofocus, and considers many of the “auto” features of the camera to be helpful but not to be relied upon. As he acknowledges, this is just his approach and not necessarily for everyone and it’s clear that this approach also requires a lot of practice to hone technique which he does mention.
