Direct manual focus (DMF)

still image

You can make fine adjustments manually after performing auto focusing, letting you focus on a subject more quickly than when using the manual focus from the beginning. This is convenient in situations such as macro shooting.

  1. MENU (Focus) → [AF/MF][Focus Mode][DMF].
  2. Press the shutter button halfway down to focus automatically.
  3. MENU (Focus) → [AF/MF][Set Focus].

    The screen for manual focusing operations will appear.

    • The screen for manual focusing operations can also be displayed by pressing the key to which [Focus Standard] has been assigned using [Custom Key Setting] or [Custom Key Setting].
  4. Press the left/right side of the control wheel or turn the control wheel to adjust the focus.
    • The focus distance will be displayed on the screen.
    • To enable fine adjustments to the focus under various conditions, the focusing indicator can be moved beyond infinity. When you want to focus at infinity, do not move the indicator to the end of the bar. Instead, adjust the focus while checking the monitor, etc.
    • To return to the shooting screen, press the center of the control wheel.
  5. Press the shutter button fully down to shoot an image.
