Using Target Finding AF

When AF area mode (

A66) in A (auto) mode is set to Target finding AF, 

the camera focuses in the manner described below when you press the 
shutter-release button halfway.

• The camera detects the main subject and 

focuses on it. When the subject is in focus, 
the focus area is displayed in green. If a 
human face is detected, the camera 
automatically sets focus priority on it.

• If no main subject is detected, the camera 

focuses on the subject in the center of the 
frame. When the subject is in focus, the focus 
area is displayed in green.

Notes About Target Finding AF

• Depending on shooting conditions, the subject that the camera determines to be 

the main subject may vary.

• The main subject may not be detected when using certain White balance 

settings.

• The camera may not detect the main subject appropriately in the following 

situations:

- When the subject is very dark or bright

- When the main subject lacks clearly defined colors

- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is at the edge of the monitor

- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern
