The following eight AF-area modes are available in focus mode AF-C.
|Single-point AF||The camera focuses on a point selected by the user.|
|Dynamic-area AF (S)||The focus point is selected manually. The camera focuses on the subject in the selected focus point when autofocus is initiated, but if the subject later briefly leaves the selected point, the camera will focus based on information from surrounding points. Choose if the camera has difficulty focusing, or for active subjects that are hard to keep framed in a single point, and choose an option with broader coverage if the subject is moving unpredictably or occupies a large area of the frame.|
|Dynamic-area AF (M)|
|Dynamic-area AF (L)|
|Wide-area AF (S)||As for single-point AF, except that the camera focuses on a wider area.|
|Wide-area AF (L)|
The camera tracks focus on a selected subject. This option is available only in photo mode.
|Auto-area AF||The camera automatically detects the subject and selects the focus point.|
