Probably need to know what camera, along with your definition of "messing"...

as you rightly figured, i pointed out a setting to a friend regarding Marcels use of the function 4 setting for moving images, he set the function, played around a bit, but then couldn't remember how to get it back to auto focus fixed now (thank god)
dont think we'll try that setting again, i'd rather use AIServo.
thanks guys

Try turning it back on, I've noticed an improvement on my sports shots.

I have learnt with my camera its a little like meddling with the computer.

With the PC if all goes belly up just reset all the bios defaults..

With the camera just load all camera defaults (that includes the special functions)

99% of the time it works.
