Guide to using the camera

Shooting with [Self-portrait/ -timer]

[Self-portrait/ -timer] is available when shooting still images after you set [Self-portrait/ -timer] to [On] and tilt the monitor approximately 180° upward. When you are ready to shoot, check the image displayed and touch the monitor. Shots with less camera shake are possible, because the camera focuses on you in the position when you touch the monitor and shoots three seconds later, using the self-timer.*
When [Focus Area] is set to [Zone], press the center of the control wheel to lock the focus frame, and then touch the monitor.

You can also shoot by pressing the shutter button. In this case, press the shutter button halfway down to focus before pressing it all the way down to shoot. The camera will shoot three seconds later, using the self-timer.*

* The self-timer uses [AF-S] autofocus, which is locked once subjects are in focus.

Focusing on a person’s face or eyes

If you set [Focus Area] to [Wide], [Face/Eye AF Set.] to [On], and [Subject Detection] to [Human] in advance before setting [Self-portrait / -timer] described above, you can change the self-timer* setting so that it releases the shutter three seconds after you touch a face on the monitor to focus on that face or the eyes.

* The self-timer uses [AF-S] autofocus, which is locked once subjects are in focus.
