    Default C2040Z Users: Off-centre Focusing issue

    Hi guys,

    Just wanna ask does our camera supports off centre focusing?

    Meaning that the focus does not have to be at the centre but maybe off centre and somewhere left or right of the picture?

    I've read the manual but dun think have came upon this.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi Blitz
    Me using the same dc..
    What I will do is to press the shutter button halfway on the object to be focused and then shift to re-frame the photo and shoot.

    Thanks for the reply Volk.

    Yep I saw this on the online manual as well.

    However when u recompose, will the focusing pt be at the centre again?

    Pardon me ah cos I dun quite get the logic, thanks!

    hi blitz

    after when u focus on the subject, and press the shutter half-way, you are locking the focus already..

    then u move the frame to where u want while stilling holding to the half-pressed shutter...

    this way the AF is lock at the distance to the original focused subject..

    if u do not let go of the half-pressed shutter, the focus will not change...

    Ok maybe that means like if there are 2 objects A and B.

    If I half-pressed to focus on object A, then later on I shift the frame to object B, the focus (sharp point) will still remains in object A.

    Am I getting this right?

    Sorry for so many questions as I'm still new to this

    Thanks for the help volk!
