Re: help with AE lock

Press the * button only once, then recompose to the image position you want to take the picture, then press the shutter.

funny we both are "on the sme page" so to speak. from what i read i
think you press the * button twice. page 78 says: 1) focus the
subject 2) press the * button then it says the * icon will light in
the viewfinder to indicate AE lock. then aim the center of the
viewfinder over the subject where the exposure is to be locked the
press the * button, it locks the current setting. now do you press
the shutter button agian to focus on where you want the focus point
to be? 3) compose the shot and shoot. i'll keep trying but i hope
someone who does this all the time will help us out.
