About Auto Focus
â¢ Auto Focus tends not to work well if the camera is moved during recording, or when recording the types of subjects listed below. â Solid color walls or objects with little contrast â Strongly backlit objects â Polished metal or other brightly reflective objects â Venetian blinds or other horizontally repeating patterns â Multiple images that are varying distances from the camera â Subjects in poorly lit areas â Moving subjects â¢ Note that a green operation lamp and focus frame do not necessarily guarantee that an image is in focus. â¢ If Auto Focus does not produce the results you want for some reason, try using focus lock (page 64) or manual focus (page 63).
About the REC Mode Monitor Screen
â¢ The image shown on the monitor screen in the REC mode is a simplified image for composing purposes. The actual image is recorded in accordance with the image quality setting currently selected on your camera. The image saved in file memory has much better resolution and detail than the REC mode monitor screen image. â¢ Certain levels of subject brightness can cause the response of the REC mode monitor screen to slow down, which causes some static noise in the monitor screen image.
