REC Mode/Recording Techniques

Q3 Why can't I release the shutter right after changing the zoom setting in the TELE direction?
A3 After you zoom is adjusted in the TELE direction, the zoom lens moves and then AF is performed. All controls, except for the zoom button, are disabled while AF is being performed. If you need to record immediately after performing a zoom operation, select manual focus (MF), focus for maximum zoom, and then zoom to level you want. Note that manual focus at the maximum wide-angle setting allows a narrower focusing range than TELE, so you should focus at the maximum TELE setting here.
