∫ High speed AF (H) mode
• When you select 3-area-focusing (High 
speed) or 1-area-focusing (High speed), 
the auto focus is activated in high speed 
and you can focus on the subject more 
quickly.
• When you press the shutter button 
halfway, a picture may become still for a 
moment in the condition before being 
focused. However, it is not a malfunction. 
If you do not want to make pictures still 
during the auto focus, use the AF mode 
other than 3-area-focusing (High speed) 
mode and 1-area-focusing (High speed) 
mode.
• When using the digital zoom or when you 
take pictures in dark places, the AF area 
is displayed on the center of the screen 
with a size wider than usual.
• When multiple AF areas (max. 5 areas) 
light at the same time, the camera is 
focusing on all the AF areas.
The focus position is not predetermined 
because it is set to the position that the 
camera automatically determines at the 
time of focusing. If you want to determine 
the focus position to take pictures, switch 
the AF mode to 1-area-focusing mode or 
Spot-focusing mode.
• The AF mode cannot be set in simple 
mode [
], [FIREWORKS] (P62) or 
[SELF PORTRAIT] (P64) in scene mode.
