    Hi guys,

    I'll be taking the fuji x100 on a family holiday and I want to ensure that I have all the settings setup in the best way for 'quick fire' spontaneous family photos. The last thing I want to is get a load of out of focus shots or faff around with the settings while people are posing.

    don't get me wrong, i will no doubt have a little play with settings for some nicer photos, but for snaps of the kids and family, which is better AF-S or AF-C? From what I understand, AF-C is mean't to continuously re-calc focus on a subject as it's moving but I didn't notice any differences when testing it yesterday.

    thanks!

    Just use your iphone camera David, like the rest of us....... Wink

    The last thing you want is "photography" to get in the way of spoiling a holiday....

    Trust me, photography will not get in the way of enjoying the holiday. Plus, I have a 'no phone' policy when on holiday.

    I will be brining a compact camera as well, but you just can't beat the quality of shots you get from a proper camera. I know its capable of quick fire shots.

    Or do like me and leave all holiday snaps to the missus.
