Multi Target Auto Focus Technology
The digital camera automatically decides five points of focus and executes high-speed continuous shooting. It is possible to take pictures from close-in to infinity in one go.
What is multi target auto focus technology
For instance, there are plum blossoms and a torii in photographs 1(a) and (b). Previously, to focus on both, you would have had to shoot two or more pictures while changing the point of focus. With this new technology, the digital camera focuses on each subject automatically and only one push of the shutter is needed to take pictures.
In multi target AF technology, the picture is divided into two or more areas, and the digital camera obtains focus points of each area as shown in Figure 1. From the focus points of many areas, the digital camera decides which focus points to use.
Since this technology allows the digital camera to focus on many subjects automatically, the incidence of useless pictures in which nothing is in focus is reduced.
Multi target AF prevents misfocusing in macro mode
Figure 2 is an example of indicating the areas focused. The digital camera superimposes rectangles on a focused yellow flower in Figure (a), on a focused purple flower in Figure (b) and on a focused background in Figure (c). It is possible to select the areas that you wish to focus on by using this indicator.
No matter how great the depth becomes (from 1cm to infinity), the digital camera focuses each subject automatically and takes pictures when the shutter is pushed only once. It is possible to select preferred pictures later.
Pictures 2 (a) - (b) are examples of pictures with great depth. In Picture (a), bears and Santa Claus are focused. In Picture (b), a sled, a coin and a dog are focused.
