REC Mode/Recording Techniques

Q12 Why are my flash images out of focus?
This could be due to any of the following reasons.
1) A dirty lens can cause whitish blurring of an image.
2) Light from the flash reflected back from the subject can cause blurring and a feeling that the image is out of focus.
3) The AF assist light is not able to reach a far away subject in total darkness, so AF distance measurement may not be possible. Subjects that are closer or further than the focusable distance will be out of focus. When AF distance measurement is not possible for some reason, the auto focus frame will be red or the operation lamp will flash green.
If this happens, try recording using one of the following techniques:
- Turn on the AF assist light
- Focus on a subject that is the same distance as the subject you want to focus on, and then use focus lock to lock the focus for that distance
- Use manual focus (MF).
- Use pan focus (PF).
