i take it its not a good thing
it's when you camera doesn't focus properly. say you focused on a person, and instead of them being in focus, a person in back of them is. hence "back focus"
so i take it front focus is the opposite
so what's the deal when i set the AF point to the left part of the meter..... and the point i want to focus on is on the left and i push the shutter button to focus and it focuses to the right meter.... i have to push the shutter button like three more times to focus on the point i want to focus on
Actually "back focus" is a term used to adjust a video camera or motion picture cameras zoom lens. If the back focus is out of adjustment the picture won't remain sharp throughout the zoom. Adjusting the back focus is a focusing alignment that must be done whenever you change zoom lenses.
This man speaks the truth.
I work at my high school's RTVF (radio, tv, film) program, and back focus is often the overlooked PITA that can ruin a show.
