GF1-Shutter release button should lock only focus, not exposure aswell
Jun 19, 2010

Hi. I have a problem with my Pansonic GF1 - when I halfway press the shutterreleasebutton, the camera locks both focus and exposure. That mean I can not halfpress shutterreleasebutton to set focus on a specific point, and then - still holding button halfway down - recompose the framing and let the camera automaticly adjust the exposure to match the new composition. I thought this was a basic way to take images ( I am very used to work this way with my old SLR) but it seams the GF1 dont have this possibility? Very very bad if that is true. I am afraid I have to move my finger to the AE/AF Lock button first. This mean a more awkvard way to work.

Can someone help me in this matter?
