[Question] What is the Multi-target AF function?

The camera automatically determines seven focus positions and shoots seven pictures with the focus on a different position in each one. The seven still images are grouped together as a set and are recorded as an MP file *1. This function is especially useful for telephoto shooting and shooting with macro mode.
After shooting, you can also select the images whose focus positions you like and save them as JPEG files. (See the related links in the right column.)
