When [AREA] is selected for [AF/MF SETTING] > [FOCUS MODE], the camera offers a choice of focus points allowing photographs to be composed with the main subject positioned almost anywhere in the frame.
Press the selector up ([AF]) and then use the selector to position the focus frame (the focus frame can be returned to the center by pressing [DISP/BACK]). Press [MENU/OK] to put the setting into effect.
To choose the size of the focus frame, press the selector up ([AF]) and rotate the sub-command dial. Rotate the dial left to reduce the frame by up to 50%, right to enlarge it by up to 150%, or press the center of the dial to restore the frame to its original size. Press [MENU/OK] to put the setting into effect.
