Focus Magnifier

still image, movie, slow&quick motion

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

Unlike with [Auto Magnifier in MF], you can magnify the image without operating the focus ring.

  1. MENU (Focus) → [Focus Assistant][Focus Magnifier].
  2. Press the center of the control wheel to enlarge the image and select the area you want to enlarge using top/bottom/left/right side of the control wheel.
    • Each time you press the center, the magnification scale will change.
    • You can set the initial magnification by selecting MENU (Focus) → [Focus Assistant][Initial Focus Mag.] or [Initial Focus Mag.].
  3. Confirm the focus.
    • Press the (Delete) button to bring the magnified position into the center of an image.
    • When the focus mode is [Manual Focus], you can adjust the focus while an image is magnified. If [AF in Focus Mag.] is set to [Off], the [Focus Magnifier] function is canceled when the shutter button is pressed halfway down.
    • When the shutter button is pressed halfway down while an image is magnified during the auto-focusing, different functions are performed depending on the [AF in Focus Mag.] setting.
      • When [AF in Focus Mag.] is set to [On]: Auto-focusing is performed again.
      • When [AF in Focus Mag.] is set to [Off]: The [Focus Magnifier] function is canceled.
    • You can set how long the image is to be shown magnified by selecting MENU (Focus) → [Focus Assistant][Focus Magnif. Time].
