G3 - what setting for only 1 autofocus point?
thanks very much, I figured out how to do it!
I want to set my G3 so that auto focus is only one spot point, not several.
In the auto focus menu item there are 3 choices: AF single, AF continuous and manual. I selected AF single, however when I depress the shutter half way there is always more than 1 auto focus box in the screen.
You're just looking at the wrong thing - what you mention above is the Focus Mode (see page 33 of the manual). You want instead the AF Mode which gives you a choice of either Face Detection, AF Tracking, 23-Area, 1-Area and Pinpoint, for how the focus will be decided by the camera. See beginning on page 83 of the confusing and poorly-written manual for the discussion of these settings. You can put the AF Mode on the Quick Menu so you can easily select which you want with just a touch (see page 59 of the manual). Hope this helps!
