The camera automatically detects the person’s face. The focus and 
exposure can then be adjusted to fit that face no matter what portion 
of the picture it is in. (max. 15 areas)
When the camera detects a person’s face, the AF area is displayed.
Yellow:
When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the frame turns green 
when the camera is focused.
White:
Displayed when more than one face is detected. Other faces that are the same distance 
away as faces within the yellow AF areas are also focused.
Note
Position and size of the AF area can be changed. 
When [

Function may fail to work, making it impossible to detect faces. The AF Mode is switched to
