Guide to using the camera

Setting examples

To move focusing frames by turning dials, you can set up the dials to move frames vertically and horizontally with these settings.

  1. Assign [Toggle My Dial 1] to the (C Button) of [Still ImagesCustom Key].
  2. Set [Move AF Frame : Std] to the control wheel, which is assigned to [My Dial 1] of the [My Dial Settings].
  3. Set [Move AF Frame : Std] to the control dial, which is assigned to [My Dial 1] of the [My Dial Settings].

If you press the (C Button) in the still image shooting mode, you can recall the functions registered to [My Dial 1].
When you turn the control wheel, you can move the focusing frame up and down, whereas when you turn the control dial, you can move the focusing frame left and right. When you press the (C Button) again, normal function is resumed and the focusing frame will not move even if you turn the dial.
