Step 3 Focus and Shoot

1

Press the shutter-release button halfway.

When the shutter-release button is pressed halfway 
(

A 11), the camera sets focus and exposure (shutter 

speed and aperture value). Focus and exposure 
remain locked while the shutter-release button is 
pressed halfway.

When a face is detected:

• The camera focuses on the face framed by the double 

border. When the subject is in focus, the double border 
glows green.

When a face is not detected:

• The camera focuses on the subject in the center of the 

frame. When the subject is in focus, the focus area 
glows green.

The camera focuses in the center of the frame and the focus area is not displayed when 
digital zoom is in effect. Once focus has been acquired, the focus indicator (

A 6) glows 

green.

While the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the focus area or focus indicator 
may blink red. This indicates that the camera is unable to focus. Modify the composition 
and press the shutter-release button halfway again.

Press the shutter-release button the rest of 
the way down.

The shutter is released and the image will be saved to the 
memory card or internal memory.
