"Cannot access all 5 AF functions on Canon 90D."

Hi Ray,

Sorry that you're having an issue with setting your auto focusing modes with your Canon 90D. I'm not sure I'm exactly clear on what specific issue is facing you, but I'll try to help.

Feel free to comment back when you get a chance.

How To Set Auto-focus mode on Canon 90D

See the photos above (click to enlarge). There are 5 simple steps to select which of the 5 auto-focus modes you wish to shoot with. With your camera power on and "awake" do this

1. Select the "Q" quick menu button on the back of your 90D.
2. Select the auto-focus mode button on your Canon's LCD screen. It's at the bottom, 2nd from the left.
3. Touch it again or hit the "set" button and the 5 options will appear at the top of your 90D LCD screen.
4. Select the option you want to shoot with by touching it.
5. Customize the area or spot location on your LCD screen that you want your camera to use to focus on your subject.

Once you've selected the specific location you want to use then gently touch the shutter button and you're ready to take you next photo with the 90D auto-focus option set the way you want.

I hope this helps, Ray!
