Basic Functions
• About the Autofocus Function
This camera employs AiAF (artificial intelligence autofocus)
technology which uses a broad metering field to calculate
the focal distance with high precision. It delivers a crisp
focus even when the photographic subject is slightly off-
The AiAF function can be turned off so that the autofocus
is metered from a fixed AF frame at the center of the field
to accommodate difficult shooting conditions (p. 64).
• Image Seen in Viewfinder vs. Recorded Image
Please note that the actual image may differ from the
image seen in the optical viewfinder due to the physical
separation between the viewfinder and lens. This is called
the parallax phenomenon and is more noticeable the
closer the subject is to the lens. In some cases, portions of
images shot up close that appear in the viewfinder will
not appear in the recorded image. You are recommended
to use the LCD monitor to shoot images up close.
Using the Viewfinder
The optical viewfinder can be used to conserve power while shooting.
Aim the square brackets (autofocus metering field) inside the
viewfinder at the primary subject to shoot. The field of vision is
approximately 82% at the maximum telephoto setting.
