Shooting with the AF lock
using Center AF
If it is difficult to focus because the subject
is not in the center of the frame, you can
focus in this situation using the AF range
finder. For example, when you are shooting
two human subjects, and there is a gap
between them, the camera may focus on the
background visible in the gap. In a case like
this, use AF lock to ensure the subjects are
in correct focus.
• When you are using AF lock, you can capture
an image with the correct focus even if the
subject is at the edge of the frame.
a Compose the shot so that the
subject is centered in the AF
range finder, and press the
shutter halfway down.
First, the focus for the subject you are
aiming at will be adjusted. When the
AE/AF lock indicator stops flashing
and remains on, and there is a beeping
sound, focus adjustment is completed.

shot, and press the shutter
When you hear a beeping sound, the
image will be recorded with the proper
focus for the human subjects.
• You can carry out the AF lock adjustment
process any number of times, as long as you do
it before you press the shutter.
