Well, for my limited experience in street photography, everything is pre-set.I really just cannot see how one can do quick focusing for street work. - marcmarc
I focus by moving closer.
With the Rolleiflex, I meter my hand, to get facial tones, then prefocus to 10-15ft,
and set the speed [at least 1/30th] and aperture [f/11 or higher]. With the 7ii/43mm,
I set the focus to 10ft -> infinity, f/11 [using the DOF markings on the lens - easy with
the 43mm], and let the camera set the shutter speed. Out of ten rolls I lost about 5-6
shots to camera shake and bad focusing. I lost 0 shots to under/over exposure problems.
I lost shots by being too far away to make an effective composition, and I lost shots
to timing. I couldn't blame the camera. Note, about half the time, I didn't raise the
the camera to my eye [with Rollei, it's even less].
Whatever works, do it. This camera is awesome, a joy to work with and produced
great results. I, or others, could say the same about, 15 other cameras.
It's no Magic Bullet, and neither is a 'blad, a leica, a rollei, a bessa, etc.
