pre-set focus

Definition: Technique of setting focus of lens to a point at which photographer expects movement or action to take place e.g. racing cars coming out of a corner or at goal-mouth. * This avoids the time-lag involved in checking focus accuracy. * Used even with auto-focus lenses: in fact, professional auto-focus lenses may be able to memorise pre-set positions.
