RX100 and DMF (Direct Manual Focusing): questions
I am trying out out DMF with focus peaking. It seems like a really neat feature, but I am just getting the hang of it.
From P. 95 of the manual:
Using [DMF] [Manual Focus]
1. MENU 2 [Focus Mode] [DMF] or [Manual Focus]
2. Adjust the focus by turning the Control Ring.
Use the peaking function, [Focus Magnifier] or [MF Assist] to adjust focus more easily.
When [Focus Mode] is set to [DMF], auto focus activates when you press the shutter > button halfway down.
Focusing using the [DMF] setting
Using [DMF] allows you to use a combination of manual and automatic focus > adjustment as follows. After focusing automatically, make fine focus adjustments > manually. Effective when you want to focus narrowly. Hold down the shutter button > halfway, then turn the Control Ring. Adjust the focus manually in advance, then use > automatic focus. Effective for focusing on subjects that are toward the back of a scene > because those subjects tend to be out of focus when using the automatic focus > adjustment.
Once you change the focus method, the distance of the focus you set up is cleared.
I don't find the above totally clarifying, particularly the part about the effect of half pressing the shutter, and/or when you should do that.
Anyway, do others of you use this mode as the default focusing mode?
