Contrast Detect AF on a580 -- questions
Aug 3, 2012

Is Contrast Detect AF only available in FC Live View mode on the a580? And is it the only option when in FC Live View mode?

I ask because I am puzzled why there is a menu option for "AF Mode," but it always seems disabled. Maybe it's another function on the camera that is rendering that option disabled, but I can't seem to enable it no matter what I change.
