Controlled Focus

1413 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  NE
How would I set up my camera so that it will focus on only a plant/fish/area and blur everything else (read: algae :mrgreen: ) around it? At the same time, how do I focus on my desired object? Usually, when I shoot, the camera just focuses (places some rectangle) on random things, instead of the object that I want for it to focus on.

to set the camera to just using the center focuspoint:

press menu button (in take picture mode)
set AiAF to off.
Return by pressing the menu button again.

Edit: Not available in Auto mode use P or some other mode (Tv,Av or M).

This camera has Artificial focus inteligence and if you dont turn that off the camera chooses which focus point (1 or more of 9) it will use by it self,
you can shut off this behaivour as in my previous post but i forgot to write that you must use another mode than AUTO (in AUTO the camera always use the AiAF).
Or use manual focus (also not available in AUTO) by pressing the flower twice.
