Hi Alan,

Many thanks!
Great to have an experienced user and teacher here in the forum.

I did play with the menu button on the back of the Z1012 and found no MF selection in the menu tabs. Hence I replied the same.

Now I know that I should have used the middle button on the top of the camera.

Daniel

It's as small a step as you can manage with a tiny push of the right & left-arrow buttons on the four-way controller on the back of the camera. I've found it a little fiddly to use, but I've done it successfully on quite a few macro shots of flowers, etc., that I've posted here & there nearby, sometimes finding it easier to get the right bits of the subject sharp than trying to use the autofocus.

Experimentation would be necessary to determine the minimum step at each aperture. If step-by-step or continuous is that important to you, you'll have to move to a dSLR or other camera with a nice manual focus ring on the lens, but it'll cost you a lot of money!

These and similar questions demonstrate the value of going to a real camera shop (or retail outlet, or whatever you call it), and getting your hands on some cameras, to see if you like them. If you take along a memory card, you can taker some snaps and analyse them ay home. If you challenge retailers with an online price you've seen (include the delivery charge), they'll probably give you a discount, if they're not already cheaper.
