Can somebody explain multi-point focus?
Feb 6, 2012

Hi all, perhaps this is a dumb question, but can you explain what multi-point focus does?

ie, if I see multiple green boxes (sometimes as many as nine), does that mean the camera is trying to get all of that in focus? Does that mean it may pick a higher f-stop?

And when you do see multiple green boxes, and want to get closer via DMF, how do you know which will zoom in? And can you toggle to other boxes?

I tend to leave center focus on, but I'm curious to know why I might prefer multi.

Thanks
