Re: Focus point indication during playback

I get this on some of my C-AF sequences of bird flight shots. I assumed it was because the camera did not get focus on any points on some of the shots even if it started with focus. My C-AF release priority setting is off but I think that only affects initial C-AF lock when using sequential-L drive. I am tending to use the 5x5 block as the all-points will more often select off the subject if there is stuff in the background. I also use the focus limit settings to prevent going off-subject with back and foreground stuff.

I thought the Olympus Workspace / viewer software used to also display the focus points as that is easier than the tiny view you get on the camera playback, but I cannot find this feature in the latest version of Oly Workspace.

Maybe if you post your settings we can all compare?
