Camera: Canon 700D
Lens: EF-S 55-250mm STM
So far I have been shooting still subjects. But recently I wanted to photograph moving people (skaters).
I changed the AF mode to AI-Servo (as skaters are obviously moving all the time) and started taking photos.
To my surprise, the green focus confirmation dot that normally appears at the bottom right of the viewfinder did not fire up at all! I read the camera manual and this is a known feature. The focus confirmation light indeed does not work in AI-Servo mode.
I am a bit puzzled now. How am I supposed to know if my shot is in focus? Am I supposed to "spray and pray" that I get good shots?
Or there is some other camera setting that I am not aware of?
Update: By "focus confirmation dot" I am not talking about the red focus points. I am talking about the green confirmation dot that appears at the bottom right of the viewfinder that says to me "focus has been achieved".
