Hello, using the program 'Exif viewer" for Mac, this information appears in the "auto focus" line. If I understand well, it means the top focus area was selected as being the point of focus. But it's not true. I chose the center focus area. I also noticed it gives this information as soon as* "single area" is selected. Could it mean the top focus area is always used even when I chose one of the four others?* When in Auto mode, it often reads something like "closest subject, top selected, bottom focused". What is there to understand? Germain.*[img]/forums/images/emoticons/confused-smiley-017.gif[/img]

I would believe what I see on the camera over what the exif shows. I really don't understand how they could quantify the focus areas since some camera has 11 or more.
