SX50 - Focusing on background rather than near subject
Sep 30, 2012

Taking a few snaps of the grand-daughter and was having a problem with the background getting the focus lock rather than the near subject.

Even when the subject filled the AF frame the backgound often got the focus. If the background was in the frame it got the focus.

Shot in P mode, Auto ISO, JPG S Fine.
AF Frame set to FlexiFrame (default larger size and position), Servo AF is Off.
