okay, we've discussed back button focus before, but it's been a while. I tried it and couldn't make it work.
well, thanks to Krissy, I re-read my camera manual a few weeks ago (she had a tips thread on ILP, and that was in it, to read the manual again). turns out that I didn't have BBF set up right. so right then and there, I set it up on my camera, the right way. now that I'm doing it, I can't believe I did it any other way. it's so easy!
so, who else is using BBF?
and if you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a link that explains it: http://www.usa.canon.com/dlc/controller?act=GetArticleAct&articleID=2286
