Default LCD frame freeze on G5

I recently purchased a G5 after having a G3. When I halfway depress the shutter in auto and other modes the image in the LCD freezes for a split second then unfreezes. This never happened on my G3. Anyone ever heard of this happening? Tks.

It is perfectly normal for the LCD to freeze during the auto focus operation.

Go into Menu > AF Mode and see if its set on Single or Continuous. If its single, the LCD will freeze when its focusing.

Thank's Johnson. That was it. Is it better to leave it in continual or single? tKS.

Here's what my manual has to say (pg 82 in Canon G2 manual):

Continuous - The camera is continually focusing on whatever it is aimed even when the shutter button is not pressed, allowing you to shoot without missing opportunities.

Single - The camera only focuses when the shutter button is pressed halfway, conserving battery power.

-------------------

Im pretty much new to this but I keep it on single. If you were shooting action shots or moving subjects, continuous might be better for you.
