[Question] Let me know about the focusing modes.

There are six focusing modes.

Available Focusing Modes
Symbol Mode Description
None Multi AF Measures the distances from 9 AF areas and focuses on the nearest AF area. This prevents the center of the picture display from becoming out of focus, and enables you to shoot with a minimum number of out-of-focus pictures.
None Spot AF Selects one AF area at the center of the picture display to allow the camera to focus on this area automatically.
Multi-trgt AF Multi-trgt AF Takes 7 consecutive pictures while shifting the focus to multiple positions.
MF (Manual Focus) MF (Manual Focus) Enables you to adjust the focus manually.
Snap Snap Fixes the shooting distance to a short distance (approx.2.5m).
∞(Infinity) ∞(Infinity) Fixed the shooting distance to infinity. Infinity is useful for shooting distant scenes.
