Is this the birth of a new rumor or what???
QuoteOriginally posted by house Quote
Having "intelligent" af only in green mode (scene analyze auto) is imho a very bad idea if thats really the case.
Subject recognition through OVF is available when using Auto AF Points and Zone Select (these are two of AF Active Area settings). At least that's what Wakashiro san told me when I asked (K-3 III "online touch and try" CP+ event open for registration. I'll attend. - Page 2 - PentaxForums.com), and that's what Wakashiro san said in one of the seminars later (Tanaka san - Wakashiro san online seminar about K-3 III (CP+ 2021) - PentaxForums.com), so I believe this to be the case.

Wakashiro san was not talking about Capture Modes (Av, TV, M, AUTO etc.). You can use Auto AF points or Zone Select in any of the Capture Modes except that AUTO (Capture Mode) forces you to use Auto AF Points.

Are you sure you read that? Or perhaps you read kwb's post from the previous page, where he was able to find out that the AI-based recognition is available in "Auto AF Points and Zone Select"?
Do you know what those modes are?
You beat me to it, I too suspect that house (or maybe another poster who wrote the post that house read?) might have been confused by my posts.

That's excellent then! As I said it makes not sense having advanced AF only in green mode.

That's good. It made no sense whatsoever to develop these advanced subject recognition modes that would greatly enhance widely varying types of shooting, with very specific settings needed for each, but then limit the use to very basic green mode shooting.


I'd want to set up, say, f/7.1, 1/1250th shutter, TAv, high-speed shutter drive, AND some type of subject tracking for sports... but then the camera is going to make me pick just one of subject tracking or my settings? I hoped/assumed that wasn't the case all along because you might as well not have the feature if you can't optimize the settings.
