Hi all,

What am I doing wrong? Reading the X10 manual on page 48, it says I can change the focus point. It's currently stuck on the center point. I have the AF mode to "area", and focus mode as AF-S already. But pressing the AF button and the directional pad gives me nothing. Neither does pressing the AF button and rotating the main command dial change anything for me.

What am I doing wrong? Is there something wrong with my camera?

I was shooting RAW, in aperture mode when I was trying to do this.

You probably have face detection turned on. That disables the ability to select auto focus points.

One of the stupiest design on Fujifilm ever. Keep bumping into this only to be saved by this post
