Focusing in Live View

Focusing in Live View: Shooting with the Canon 5D Mark III

The autofocus sensors in your camera are disabled in live view because the mirror must be moved out of the way to allow in light. The Canon 5D Mark III makes up for this by using a different type of autofocus. Focusing in live view is slower than when shooting normally, but there are additional modes you can activate to help alleviate this problem. Learn how to activate these modes and how to focus in live view with this online tutorial.
