Thread: KX without AF points

    Autofocus works better in brighter light, and when you are shooting something with lots of clear lines or edges (like a zebra, or a brick wall)

    Compare your camera viewfinder to the one in the middle of the link below.

    1. Check the bottom right corner - does it say "MF" or "AF"? If its in "MF" look for the switch on the side of the camera and switch it to AF.

    2. Check if a green hexagon appears on the bottom row when you half press it. It is displayed between the aperture and exposure compensation display. There should be a beep sound also when it has finished focusing, but that may have been turned off by accident or something.

    3. Are you using a manual focus lens? Or using a lens with a AF/MF switch? Or an SDM lens which has spoiled (lol). That is the only other reason I can think of...

    you will see it when the camera thinks that what you want to focus on is in focus.
