The AF-C Custom Setting allows you to select one of five AF presets according to the subject's movements to obtain perfect focus tracking. Based on how the subject moves, you can select a preset from, for example, Preset 2: Ignoring obstacles, Preset 3: For subjects that accelerate / decelerate, Preset 4: For subjects that suddenly come into the frame or Preset 5: Subjects with erratic movements to obtain optimum settings for accurate subject tracking. A combination of three factors: Tracking sensitivity, Speed tracking sensitivity and Zone area switching, may be manually set and registered as Preset 6: Custom.
|Tracking Sensitivity||Speed Tracking Sensitivity||Zone area Switching|
|Preset 1: Basic||2||0||AUTO|
|Preset 2: Ignoring obstacles||3||0||CENTER|
|Preset 3: Accelerating / decelerating subjects||2||2||AUTO|
|Preset 4: For subjects that suddenly come into the frame||0||1||FRONT|
|Preset 5: Erratically moving subjects||3||2||AUTO|
Preset 1: Basic
This is a standard setting for moving subjects in general. It is used by default when there is no specific AF-C Custom Setting selected. This is closest to the AF-C setting on previous models.
Preset 2: Ignoring obstacles
Suitable when objects other than the subject enter the focusing area due to the subject going out of the frame or obstacles obscuring the subject.
Preset 3: Accelerating / decelerating subjects
The perfect setting for subjects whose speed of movement changes significantly. It is particularly effective when using a lens featuring a linear motor for high-speed focus tracking.
Preset 4: For subjects that suddenly come into the frame
Allows the camera to instantly focus on a subject that comes into the focusing area, with priority given to objects closest to the camera. It is ideal for subjects that suddenly appear in the focusing frame.
Preset 5: Erratically moving subjects
This is suitable when subjects are moving at varying speeds in different directions, coming in and out of the focusing area. It is perfect for shooting field sports, etc.
Preset 6: Custom
Manually create a preset optimized for the specific movement characteristics of your subject. You can adjust subject retention level, acceleration / deceleration level and zone area priority to your preference, then save them using this preset.
