NOTE
• An Auto Macro feature detects how far the subject is from the lens and 
automatically selects either Macro Focus or Auto Focus accordingly.
• Use of the flash together with Macro Focus can cause the light of the flash to 
become blocked, which may result in unwanted lens shadows in your image.
• Auto Macro can be used when recording snapshots only. Also, Auto Macro is 
supported only when zoom is set to full wide-angle.
• Whenever you perform an optical zoom operation while shooting with Auto Focus, 
Macro Focus, or Manual Focus, a value will appear on the monitor screen to tell 
you the focus range, as shown below.
Example: oo cm to 9
*
oo
 is the actual focusing range value.
• The operations assigned to the [
4
] and [
6
] keys with the “L/R Key” setting (page 
64) are disabled while Manual Focus is selected as the focus mode.
Using Focus Lock
“Focus lock” is a technique you can use when you want 
to compose an image in which the subject you want to 
focus on is not within the focus frame in the center of the 
screen.
• To use focus lock, select “U Spot” for the Auto 
Focus area (page 63).
1.
Align the monitor screen’s focus frame with 
the subject you want to focus on and then 
half-press the shutter button.
2.
Keeping the shutter button half-pressed 
(which maintains the focus setting), move the 
camera to compose the image.
3.
When you are ready to shoot the image, 
press the shutter button the rest of the way 
down.
NOTE
• Focus lock also locks exposure (AE).
