Special Focusing Situations
To successfully focus, whether using the F4’s Electronic Range
finder, an optical rangefinder, or a clear matte field, the subject
must be reasonably illuminated and have sufficient contrast. If
the focus-not-possible indicator X appears, manually focus by
estimating distance or choose an alternate focus target with
the same distance, lock focus, then recompose.
The following situations are examples that are difficult to focus
and require greater concentration to secure correct focus.
1) When shooting the following:
■ Bright subject with a shiny surface, such as silver or
. Strongly backlit subject.
. Scene with variety of subjects located at different distances.
2) When using a linear polarizing filter, or special filter such as
a soft-focus filter. (A circular polarizing filter can be used for
R60 (red) and 056 (orange) filters will interfere with Elec
tronic Rangefinder and autofocus operation. When using
these filters, focus manually.
