You can easily switch the focusing mode from auto to manual and vice versa while shooting without changing your holding position. The setting applies to both still images and movies.
Switch the AF/MF/AEL switch lever to the AF/MF position, then press the AF/MF button.
During auto focus:
Temporarily switches the focusing mode to manual. Adjust the focus by turning the focus ring (A) while holding down the AF/MF button.
During manual focus:
Temporarily switches the focusing mode to auto while the AF/MF button is held down, and locks the focus.
- If you select [AF/MF Ctrl Toggle] in [AF/MF Button] under [Custom Key(Shoot.)], the focusing mode remains switched even if you remove your finger from the button.
