I have asked this question several times but not in the wright topicI guess

I would like to find out how the manual focussing works on a P850

What do you see exatly in the evf when focussing manually

What is de speed of focussing manually and how exact can you realy focus

I would love to own a camera with maual focus and I am thinking of the P850 and this is the only thing I have not read much about

Thanks in advance for any usefull response

Yes it has, but I havent seen much feed back about it from users. I think using joystick for manual focusing is going to be tricky.

The manual focus on the P850 works like this: You use the joystick on the back of the camera to bring up a screen inside the EVF or LCD that magnifies the area that you want to concentrate on. Once that screen is up you move the joystick left or right to make your adjustments then you take your shot. The camera must be in manual focus mode though. It works pretty well in the instances that I've used it. It also works when the camera can't attain a focus lock, so the shot won't be lost.

The speed for the maunal is as fast as you are. If you get focussed, the cam is ready as soon as you done.
