There’s two different focus options on my camera, and I’m still trying to get them figured out. The first is on the lens, and I can select Auto Focus (AF) or Manual Focus (MF). Then, there’s also the AF Point Selection in the settings for the camera itself, where I see a little diagram like the one below. With this, I can select automatic, or I can set one of the dots to be the point of focus.
I haven’t quite figured out how the two different variables work together, and I probably should get out my instruction manual and read more about the two. What I have decided is that for now, I like using the Auto point selection, because when I look through my viewfinder and press the button halfway, a little red light lights up over the spot that is in focus. If I don’t want that spot in focus, I’ll just release the button and try again.
Anyway, while playing around with both AF/MF on the lens, and the focus point options, I decided to practice taking some photos of my old school Nintendo. I tried several different options, and wanted to get the words in focus on the NES. Below is the photo I liked the best. (This one was taken with AF on the lens, and the auto focus point option.)
