Basically, yes, with that shot. I have it set on pause by default in the photo mode settings. With wildlife shots i'll enter photo mode and then pause/unpause and zoom around, up and down looking for the shot i want. Sometimes you need to spook them a tiny bit to get the heads up for the shot.
Using a smaller fov will generally give you a better looking shot in camera mode unless you are trying to capture everything like my first two map shots. The eleventh pic with the hunter aiming the gun is fov nearly all the way in. That 50% camera perk also really helps with bird shots and then unpausing/pausing to get the wings where you want them.
