Setting the Manual Focus is pretty easy like with many other manual settings you need to be in certain modes that allow you this access. I use the program mode. Anytime I use the program mode or any of these other modes, the TV, AV or manual I can access my Manual Focus to access the Manual focus just go ahead and press the MF button. The up navigation button right here and you can see this little ruler on the side and you can just use the dial in order to move that scale to the distance between you and the subject. This will magnifying square. It helps a little bit but sometimes it too looks like its in focus but the picture may not be exact. Its not a perfect thing manual focus so basically what I like to do is set it up to let say two meters and then just position myself about two meters away from the subject if possible. Of course if I’m taking pictures of landscapes or sports where the subject is at a greater distance I can just turn it all the way up to infinity and it will be just fine.
Finally, I just want to show you how to change your ruler from meters to feet if you’re more comfortable using the feet and inches system. Let’s go ahead and press the menu button right here. Go over to the Set up tab and then go down until you get to distance units. Move over to feet and inches and that’s it. Go ahead and press Menu and not I’m in feet and inches. Here is ten feet, five feet and so on.
