To focus at close distances, press the selector up to choose a macro mode from the options listed below.
At default settings, macro mode selection is assigned to the up button on the selector (function button 2). For information on choosing the roles assigned to the function buttons, see “The Function Buttons”.
Macro mode can also be selected using the [AUTOFOCUS SETTING] option in the shooting menu.
Macro mode is available only with the electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor. If the optical viewfinder or dual optical viewfinder/electronic range finder is on when macro mode is selected, the camera will automatically switch to the electronic viewfinder.
The LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder can be used at short ranges without first enabling macro mode, but the camera may take longer to focus.
The shadow cast by the lens may appear in photographs taken with the flash at very short ranges. Zoom out or increase the distance to the subject.
