|AF-S||Single AF||Stationary Subjects||Press the shutter-release button halfway to focus. If the camera is able to focus, the focus point will be displayed in green; focus will lock while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. If the|
camera fails to focus, the focus point will flash red. In addition, Low-Light AF*1 can be enabled in this mode for more accurate focusing under low-light conditions (please note that focusing may
be slower when activated). In the default setting, the shutter can only be released if the camera is able to focus (focus priority).
|AF-C||Continuous AF||Moving Subjects||The camera focuses continuously while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway; if the subject moves, the camera will predict the final distance to the subject and adjust focus as necessary. In movie mode, it is possible to adjust the focusing speed using the AF Speed setting*2 in the MOVIE menu. Additionally in movie mode, with|
AF Tracking Sensitivity*3 you can choose how quickly focus responds when your subject leaves the focus point or something passes between the subject and the camera. In the default setting, the shutter can be released whether or not the subject
is in focus (release priority).

focus point or something passes between the subject and the camera.
