Getting Sharp Focus

When you're shooting in P, Tv, Av, and M shooting modes, you can control the focus - where the focus set in the image. In other shooting modes, the camera automatically decides what and where the subject is and it decides which autofocus (AF) point or points to use. This is called automatic AF-point selection. Sometimes the camera correctly indetifies the subject, and other times, it does not. Because one aspect of getting a successful image in getting sharp focus, it's important to know how to control the focus.
To ensure that the sharp focus is where it should be in the image, the best option is to us P,Tv, Av, orM shooting mode to manually select the AF point yourself.

Here is how to manually select an AF point:

1) In P, Tv, Av, or M shooting mode, press the AF-point Selection/Magnify button on the top right back of the camera. This button has an icon of magnifying glass with a plus sign under it.

2)Watch in the viewfinder as you turn the Main dial until the AF point you wants is highlighted. Choose an AF point that is on top the place in the scene that should have sharp focus. Or in a portrait, choose the AF point that is top of the person's eye. As you move trough the AF points, eventually all the AF points are highlighted. This is the option where the camera automatically chooses the AF point or points to use. Do not choose this option if you want to control the focus yourself. Instead select an option where only the one AF point you want to use is highlighted.

3)Half-press the shutter button to focus, and then press it completely to make the picture.When you half-press the shutter button, te AF point you selected will be highlighted.
