Description

A Single AF 
(default setting)

Focus is locked when movie recording starts.
Select this option when the distance between the camera 
and subject will remain fairly consistent during movie 
recording.

B Full-time AF

The camera focuses continuously during movie recording.

and subject will change significantly during recording. The 
sound of the camera focusing may be heard in the recorded 
movie. Use of Single AF is recommended to prevent the 
sound of the camera focusing from interfering with 
recording.
