Using the Menus: Shooting Mode
Choose how the camera meters exposure when
Intelligent Face Detection is off.
• o MULTI: Automatic scene recognition is used
to adjust exposure for a wide range of shooting
• p SPOT: The camera meters lighting conditions
at the center of the frame. Recommended when
the background is much brighter or darker than
the main subject. Can be used with focus lock
(P 39) to meter off-center subjects.
• q AVERAGE: Exposure is set to the average for
the entire frame. Provides consistent exposure
across multiple shots with the same lighting,
and is particularly effective for landscapes and
portraits of subjects dressed in black or white.
F AF MODE
This option controls how the camera selects the
focus area when Intelligent Face Detection is off
(P 37). Regardless of the option selected, the
camera will focus on the subject in the center of
the monitor when macro mode is on (P 41).
• r CENTER: The camera focuses on the subject in
the center of the frame. This option can be used
with focus lock (P 39).
• s MULTI: When the shutter button is pressed
halfway, the camera detects high-contrast sub-
jects near the center of the frame and selects
the focus area automatically (if the focus frame is
not displayed, select r CENTER and use focus
lock; P 39).
