It’s all a matter of focus
The viewfinder isn’t the only way – or even the best way – of focusing your shots…
01 optical Viewfinder
When focusing through the viewfinder, you’re limited to a set number of focus points bunched within the centre axis of the frame. If your point of focus isn’t within this range, however, you will have to focus and recompose.
02 touch Focus
On bodies with a touch screen, you can tap anywhere on the LCD to focus. You can change the size of your focus point and, on mirrorless models, even touch and drag your focus point on the LCD while you look through the viewfinder.
03 Focus peaking
Exclusive to mirrorless bodies, focus peaking revolutionizes the art of manual focusing. It superimposes a coloured highlight around the edges of whatever is currently in focus, giving you razorsharp results even without 20:20 vision!
