Setting the AF Point

When you are in the basic zone mode your AF points will all be active.  The camera will decide what it thinks your subject is, and the camera is pretty good at doing this.

If you have your camera set on any of the creative zone <P>, <TV>, <AV>, and <M> you will have a say as to where you want to focus. The camera has 9 individual focus points you can use individually or separately.

Press the on the top right – backside of your camera use the dial on the top to change your AF Point. If all the red lights are on – automatic AF point selection will be set. By turning the dial you can select the individual AF point that flashes in red. Press the shutter halfway down to focus, and click.
