Hi

The camera autofocuses using 5 points in the view.
Code:
---------------------
|         *         |
|                   |
|   *     *     *   |
|                   |
|         *         |
---------------------
I am new to photography and have just purchased this camera and it seems to me the the camera automatically calculates based on these 5 points what should be in focus. So the AF frame on the view finder shows what the camera has chosen to be in focus. If you don't like what the camera has chosen you can take your finger off the shutter depress half way again which usually gets the camera to choose different focus points. If that doesn't work then you'll have to manually adjust the focus which can be done by pressing the down arrow until it displays the focus bar. Also you can lock the focus on a different object at similar distance and reposition the image and take the shot, but I find that this rarely gets the ideal shot.

Hope this help.

ciao for now

or you can switch from the 5 point autofocus to the one point - I use the one point all the time at the moment - I may play around with the 5 point again in the future but for now I'm sticking with the one point.
