Adjust autofocus settings.
Focus-area selection is available when [AREA] is selected for [AF MODE] in focus mode [S] or [C]. In focus mode [M], you can press the center of the command dial to zoom in on the selected focus area or focus on the subject in the selected area at the touch of a button.
Select macro (close-up) mode.
Choose how the camera focuses in focus mode [S] or [C].
Choose how the camera focuses when the [AEL/AFL] button is used for autofocus in focus mode [M].
Choose how the camera selects the focus area in focus modes [S] and [C].
If [ON] is selected, the camera will continue to adjust focus even when the shutter-release button is not pressed halfway.
Note that this increases the drain on the battery.
If [ON] is selected, the AF-assist illuminator will light to assist autofocus.
The AF-assist illuminator turns off automatically in silent mode.
The camera may be unable to focus using the AF-assist illuminator in some cases. If the camera is unable to focus in macro mode, try increasing the distance to the subject.
Avoid shining the AF-assist illuminator directly into your subject’s eyes.
