AF-C+ Wide/Tracking

Tracking a subject that moves across the frame up/down, right/left and closer/further

This mode is suitable for a subject that moves unpredictably across the frame. After locating the subject the camera automatically follows its movement across the entire 77-point focus area. Wide angle and standard lenses are ideally suited to give a oad view of the subject.

Perfect scenes

The perfect mode for shooting subjects popular with enthusiast photographers.

This mode is ideal for subjects that move across the frame, but it is also useful for subjects moving straight towards the camera. Pre-define the position where the subject is expected to appear as the starting point and the camera continuously tracks the subject across the entire 77-point focus area, allowing you to compose the shot first and then let the camera track the subject automatically.
