- If you use the autofocus (which I don't) this is definitely the camera to get.
- Actually, where the latter is concerned you've no choice, but I often find myself turning off the autofocus and twisting the focus ring manually, too.
- Only trick is to wind the window down first (or the autofocus won't work) and don't drop the camera.
- And all of them have an electronic viewfinder instead of an optical one: these models have a light on the front that helps the autofocus do its job even in the dark, a nice touch.
- The larger issue concerns the fact that some purchasers of the new digital model are complaining that the autofocus doesn't work properly; that the camera focuses slightly ahead of or behind the intended spot.
- Image noise is not too bad and generally the autofocus is quick and effective.
- You can adjust the output of the flash and set its autofocus to focus on the left, center, right or all three areas within the image frame.
- An almost prescient autofocus instantly zeroes in on your quarry, then continuously adjusts to stay locked on to that charging moose until you nail the shot.
- In either case, you'll know when you're trying to take a picture that's beyond the camera's close-focus capability, because the autofocus won't lock on.
- The optical zoom covers a 28 mm to 200 mm range, and the autofocus can be overridden with a manual focus.
- It is also useful when the camera's autofocus misbehaves for some reason and insists on focusing on the matrix or the background rather than on the crystals you are trying to capture.
- The autofocus was shaky in the cold, and my gloved hands kept moving the exposure dial.
