How to set focus when taking a still picture (AFS/AFC)
Select the focus mode.
• Normally use the [AFS]
“AFS” is an abbreviation of “Auto Focus Single”.
Focus is set automatically when the shutter button is pressed halfway. Focus will be fixed while it is pressed halfway.
“AFC” is an abbreviation of “Auto Focus Continuous”.
This mode allows you to compose a picture more easily by continuously focusing on the movement of the subject while the shutter button is pressed halfway.
When taking pictures of a moving subject, the camera predicts the movement of the subject and focuses on it. (m ot ion predict ion)
• It may take time to focus on the subject if you rotate the zoom ring from Wide to Tele or suddenly change the subject from a distant one to a nearby one.
• Press the shutter button halfway again when it is difficult to focus on the subject.
• When the brightness is not enough, this will work the same as [AFS] .
• For the [AFC] feature, please see page 19 for a list of compatible lens.
Set the focus manually by rotating the focus ring.
