You can check the focus by enlarging the image before shooting.

  2. Press the center of the multi-selector to enlarge the image and select the position you want to enlarge by pressing the multi-selector up/down/left/right.
    • Each time you press the center, the magnification scale will change.
    • You can set the initial magnification by selecting MENU (Camera Settings1) → [Initial Focus Mag.].
  3. Confirm the focus.
    • When the focus mode is [Manual Focus], you can adjust the focus while an image is magnified. The [Focus Magnifier] function will be canceled when the shutter button is pressed halfway.

Useful operation of the [Focus Magnifier]

By using the AF/MF control function, you can adjust the focus for an enlarged image after auto focus is performed.

When the focus mode is [Manual Focus], press the AF/MF button and perform auto focus, then use the [Focus Magnifier] function.

  • Set the focus mode switch on the lens to "AF."
  • We recommend that you assign the [Focus Magnifier] function to a desired button using [Custom Key(Shoot.)].
  • AF/MF control function is not available for SAM lenses other than SAL18135. (as of the day this camera was released)
