Thread: what the 9 red points in the viewfinder for?

  1. #1

    Default what the 9 red points in the viewfinder for?

    This is for focusing? For example, if I want to focus the left object and the left red point light up, that means it will be focus?

    Yes, if the camera you bought have 9 focus points, the 9 points you see are the focus points.

    Yes, if you choose an item on the left of the viewfinder, and select the corresponding focus point, you camera will focus on that object, if the AF is turned on.

    Have you read your manual? It's explained pretty clearly...
