human face, it focuses on that 
face.

When framing a composition 
with no human subjects or 
detected faces, the camera 
automatically selects one or 
more of the nine focus areas 
containing the subject closest 
to the camera when the 
shutter-release button is 
pressed halfway.

configure the flash mode or 
other settings, press the 
button. To return to moving 
the focus area, press the 
button again.
