GR DIGITAL III FAQs - By Product

[Question] Let me know about the [Full Press Snap].

When the [Full Press Snap] feature is enabled, the camera will perform as follows;
- If you press the shutter release half way, the AF feature of the camera will work.
- But, when you fully press the shutter release button at once, the camera will take a picture with a configured distance without AF work.

Full Press Snap

With this feature, you will not miss a shutter chance, since the camera will not do focusing when you fully press the shutter release button.

Camera works with the following conditions;
- In the [Full Press Snap] in the Shooting menu, choose other than [OFF]
- In the [Focus] setting in the Shooting menu, choose [Multi-AF] or [Spot AF]
- Set an item in the [Snap Focus Distance] *1
With the above settings, the camera will focus the distance configured in the [Snap Focus Distance] at full-press.
