Which setting to use to take boxing pictures????????
Needs more question marks IMO...
Autofocus Continuous mode would be my choice, meaning that the camera will shoot a shot whenever you press the shutter release firmly; there's not much worse than having an AF-Single or AF Focus Priority custom setting turned on, and being forced to watch a potential photo opportunity go by because the camera's AF system thinks the focus is not 100 percent dead-on.
Different camera makers refer to this mode using different terms. I suggest AF-C in Nikon, with the sub-menu in more advanced cameras set to Release Priority, not Focus Priority. That way, whenever you want to press the release and shoot, the camera will shoot.
al servo is the continuous mode as mentioned by Derrel for canons
i'd stick with his advice but since your talking canon i thought i'd help translate
the AI focus is like a mix between the one shot and the AI servo.. But for action shots i've read Stick with the Servo mode
AI servo for moving subjects
Oh yeah and note that it AI (ai) not AL (al). Artifical Intelligence, not Alan.
