In a major firmware update for the Lumix G9 there was this focus mode called Animal Detection. I haven’t really used it much since I don’t do much wildlife, but I’m starting to so I did some reading and tested it out today. It tracked this little chippie through branches in the side yard and stayed locked on pretty well. I was crouched in the driveway watching with the Leica 100-400mm and got this shot without refocusing. It missed a few, but it got more than it missed for sure. I came away impressed.
Has anyone played with it on the G9 or one of the other Pannys that has it? I assume other brands might have something similar. Do you get more keepers using it or do you use a single focus point and AF-continuous?
