REC Mode/Recording Techniques

Q15 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 Auto Focus system cannot measure distance when shooting in complete darkness, which causes images to 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, focus on a bright subject that is the same distance as the subject you want to focus on, and then use focus lock to lock focus as you aim at the dark subject. You can also try using the manual focus mode (MF) or pan focus mode (PF).
