AF-C+ Zone

For tracking a subject hand-held

The AF-C mode continuously focuses while the shutter button is half-pressed. Using the combination of AF-C and Zone modes, you can select one of three different size zones anywhere within the 77-point focus area. Once the subject is identified at the center of the zone, the camera continuously tracks the subject while it stays within the focus area. It is ideal for following a moving subject while hand-holding the camera.

Perfect scenes

For subjects with reasonably predictable movements that can be followed hand-held.

This mode is ideal for photographing subjects moving in a predictable way so you can keep them within the focus area while shooting hand held. People/animals or transport moving in a specific direction, for example. It works well with telephoto lenses. You can also use Continuous shooting while following the subject, and choose the best shot afterwards.

TIPS for Auto Focus Setting

  • Focus Area selection screen

    Defining the position and size of the focus area

    You can select one of three different size zones in the 77-point focus area, and determine the position of the zone within the 11×7 grid. Phase detection AF works in the central larger rectangle area*1 for high speed AF.

  • Focus Area selection screen

    Select the focus area nearest to where your subject will move

    The camera continuously focuses on the subject as long as it stays within the focus area. Try and position the subject at the center of the zone and choose the focus zone that's nearest to where the subject will move.
