AF-Area Mode
AF-area mode determines how the

mode (
0 90). To select the AF-area 
mode, rotate the AF-area mode 
selector. The following options are 
available:
Mode
Description
K
Single-
point AF
User selects focus point manually; camera focuses on 
subject in selected focus point only.
 
Use for relatively static 
compositions with subjects that will stay in selected focus 
point.
I
Dynamic-
area AF
• In continuous-servo AF (0 90), user selects focus point 
manually; if subject briefly leaves selected focus point, 
camera will focus based on information from surrounding 
points. Number of focus points used can be selected from 
9, 21, and 51 using Custom Setting a3 (Dynamic AF area
0 296). If 51 points (3D-tracking) is selected for Custom 
Setting a3, focus point will be selected automatically 
using 3D-tracking.
• In single-servo AF, user selects focus point manually; camera 
focuses on subject in selected focus point only.
H
Auto-area 
AF
Camera automatically detects 
subject and selects focus point.
 
If 
type G or D lens is used, camera can 
distinguish human subjects from 
background for improved subject 
detection. In single-servo AF, active 
focus points are highlighted for 
about one second after camera focuses. Active focus points 
are not displayed in continuous-servo AF.
