∫ When you want to take a subject out 
of the AF area (AF/AE Lock)
When recording a picture of people with a 
composition as the above picture, you 
cannot focus on the subject because it is 
out of AF area in usual operation.
In this case,
Aim the AF area at the subject.
2 Press the shutter button halfway to fix 
the focus and the exposure.
• When the subject is focused, the focus 
indication lights.
3 Keeping pressed the shutter button 
halfway, move the camera as you 
compose the picture.
Press the shutter button fully.
• You can repeatedly retry AF/AE lock 
before pressing the shutter button fully.
∫ Tips for taking good pictures
To take pictures without blurring:
• Hold the camera gently with both hands, 
keep arms stationary at your side and 
stand with your feet slightly apart.
• Make sure that camera shake does not 
occur when you press the shutter button.
• Do not cover the photo flash or the AF 
assist lamp with your finger or other 
objects.
• Do not touch the front of the lens.
1: When holding the camera sideways
2: When holding the camera vertically
A: Photo flash
B: AF  assist  lamp
• Especially in the following cases, the 
shutter speed will be slower. Keep the 
camera still from the moment you press 
the shutter button until the picture appears 
on the screen. We recommend using a 
tripod. The use of the self-timer (P41) 
prevents jittering caused by pressing the 
shutter button when you are using a 
tripod.
