Manual Focus (Set Focus)

still image, movie, slow&quick motion

When it is difficult to focus properly in the autofocus mode, you can adjust the focus manually.

  1. MENU → (Focus) → [AF/MF][Focus Mode][Manual Focus].
  2. MENU → (Focus) → [AF/MF][Set Focus].
    The screen for manual focusing operations will appear.
  3. 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.
    • To return to the shooting screen, press the center of the control wheel.


  • Using [Auto Magnifier in MF] allows you to manually focus more easily because the image is automatically enlarged during manual focus adjustments. While the magnified image is displayed, you can use the top/bottom/left/right side of the control wheel to adjust which part of the image to magnify. Turn the control wheel to adjust the focus.
  • When you use [Peaking Display], the outlines of in-focus ranges are enhanced using a specific color. This function allows you to check the focus easily.
  • The screen for manual focusing operations can be displayed when shooting in the manual focusing mode by pressing the key to which you assigned [Focus Standard] using [Custom Key Setting] or [Custom Key Setting].


  • Manually set focus distances are canceled when [Focus Mode] is reselected.
  • The displayed focus distance is just a reference.
