    Default Enquiry..

    Hi guys,

    i have somehow decide to go with k-x(unless something happen that makes me chose 1000D)

    But just 1 question, about k-x focusing issue, it seems like k-x does not focus on a object u want it to focus at? unlike 1000D with a focusing indicator.

    So question is, how to overcome this problem?

    I do not wan to go for some event and yet let my precious photo taking time gone to waste just to figure out how to deal with the focusing problem.

    Can expert out here help me? Thanks

    it is not that the k-x will not focus on the subject you want to focus at. what kind of camera is made to deliberately do that?

    it's just that there is no focus indicator that will light up to tell you at which part of your viewfinder your focus is locked at. you have to be aware of your settings.

    otherwise, you can set the camera to the centre spot focus, focus, then reframe. then you will always know where your camera is trying to focus at.

    There is NO FOCUSING PROBLEM with the K-x.

    THere is no focus indicator only . . .

    Place auto and select all 11 points and shoot . . .

    Pardon me, what if in any case i'm not using auto and nid to use manual, does k-x itself do it?

    For manual focus, you just switch a AF selector button on the camera.

    As mentioned, there are focus points. And you can select them. The typical method is to set to center point focus so that you know where the focus point is at. In fact, thet is how ppl use the camera anyway.
    There is only no super imposed AF indicator on the viewfinder other than a small black dot.

    Manual you turn the lens and hear a beep sound and the green hexagon dot lights up in the EVF and can shoot already . . .

    k-x 18-55mm kit
    Rechargeable kit
    8GB SDHC
