Understanding Canon Autofocus (AF) Systems

Canon EOS R Mirrorless and Canon DSLR Autofocus Systems Overview Canon EOS R Mirrorless and Canon DSLR Autofocus Systems  Overview

Canon autofocus systems are so easy to use and so effective that many photographers rarely switch to Manual Focus or MF (not to be confused with Manual exposure mode, denoted by M in the camera menu and on the mode dial, if your camera has one). But how do they work, and what do the different options mean?

When you use autofocus, there are a range of settings and options available, which may vary from camera to camera. For easier menu navigation and setting, all the AF settings and Custom Functions are grouped into one menu tab, so there is no need to jump into different menu areas to make changes (Source: Canon Europe)
