@withaveeay I run Magic Lantern (not the spyware, lol) on my old Canon.
One of my favorite features is that it can render dots on sharp contrast changes, which lets me manually focus quickly even if my own eyes are trash at the moment. Just sweep the focus until you get the dots all over the subject!
@draeath I've now found a manual focus option, but it's harder to work than just leaving the thing. Centre-weighting, continuous AF and setting it to a sort of semi-pre-focus help, but it's still hit and miss. Both these pictures required several stabs at the shutter button.
