AF-C Custom Settings

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

SETTING

  • Preset 1: Basic

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
