On-Screen Frames
In [
] mode, a variety of frames are displayed once the camera detects 
subjects you are aiming the camera at.
A white frame is displayed around the subject (or person’s face) 
determined by the camera to be the main subject, and gray frames are 
displayed around other detected faces. Frames follow moving subjects 
within a certain range to keep them in focus.
However, if the camera detects subject movement, only the white frame 
will remain on the screen.
When you are pressing the shutter button halfway and the camera 
detects subject movement, a blue frame is displayed, and the focus and 
image brightness are constantly adjusted (Servo AF).
Try shooting in [
G] mode (
frames are not displayed around desired subjects, or if frames are 
displayed on the background or similar areas.
