Superior AF in low light

Autofocus performs well in low-light conditions as low as EV -2, which is equivalent to a moonlit night.

AF Area modes

For autofocusing, you can choose among Wide, Zone, Centre, Flexible Spot, Expand Flexible Spot and Lock-on AF area mode, which allows precise focus tracking of a subject by optimising target frame size and ensuring use of the optimal AF point.

AF Range Control

Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.

Face Detection and Eye AF

Face Detection with Face Registration can detect up to eight faces in a scene, and adjust exposure, white balance, flash and other settings for beautiful portraits. Eye AF further assures sharp focusing on the face by detecting an eye to focus on.
