This video is floating around all the major photography blogs/sites. If you've ever purchased one of my tutorials or watched any of my videos you know I'm all about efficiency. (I'm even writing a book about it.) I thought this video by Mike Hagen explaining why he thinks back button focus for Nikon is more efficient was pretty compelling. While this is not a technique I regularly use I think some shooters, specifically sports shooters, may find it really useful.
While lower end Nikon's don't have this particular feature, don't worry he shows us how to create a setting to copy the same technique to achieve same result.
