I am going to try back button focusing with my D7200 and understand their are 2 steps to do this under "Custom Setting Menu":

(1) f Controls - f4 - AF-ON

(2) a Autofocus - a4 AF activation - AF-ON only

Before shooting using BBF I mostly used AF-C and switched between the Release & Focus options. Does it matter if a1 AF-C priority selection is in Release or Focus when using BBF.

and release for AF-S so I can focus and recompose when nothing is moving.
??? Set to "focus" for AF-S, you focus, and focus locks when you hear the beep (if turned on). then you can recompose and shoot with the original focus locked. With focus for AF-C, you might miss shots which may be marginal. I've always used release for AF-C, especially with the D5, D850, and D500 whose AF systems are very quick and reliable.

When I got my D7200 few weeks ago the first thing I changed was BBF. Why? I used to shoot the D5100 and the D7000 and I loved it.
I watched this VDO to help me to do it correct
