Setting the right focus
The camera automatically focuses on and detects people eyes or faces. When a face is in the shot, the camera automatically detects and focuses on one of the eyes with a green frame (eye AF feature). If you tap (Eye AF icon) while focusing on an eye, the camera switches its focus to the face(s).
The camera can also detect and track a moving object. A yellow frame indicates faces or moving objects that are in focus.
To change the focus area, tap the screen. The focus becomes locked and the circular frame color changes when the camera key is pressed halfway down. This option is only available for the main camera, and depends on the capturing mode selected.
You can also set a specific focus distance.
The eye AF feature is available only when using the main camera.
To set the focus distance
- When using the main camera, tap Mode > (Manual mode icon).
- Tap (Set focus icon).
- Drag the slider to adjust the focus distance. To hide or show the settings menu, tap (Manual mode icon).
- Press the camera key or tap the shutter button to take a photo.
This setting is only available for the main camera.
