Features
Wide Centre-Cross 9-Point AF Sensor Freedom of composition when shooting stationary objects and excellent focusing ability for moving objects mean users get crystal-clear images with a minimum of fuss. The new Wide Centre-Cross 9-Point AF system covers not just the vertical and horizontal aspects from the centrepoint, but diagonally into all four quadrants of the frame.

Multi-dimensional Predictive Focus Control
Like the name suggests, this function keeps a clear focus on fast moving subjects calculating exactly where a moving subject is going to be at the moment of shutter release and making certain that the focus is razor sharp. Autofocusing (AF) speed is
one of the greatest strengths of this model. It means you’re always ready to capture the magic moments that you want to preserve forever.

DMF (Direct Manual Focus) Mode*2
This mode allows you to quickly adjust focusing after the focus is locked in AF mode. Pressing the shutter release half way activates and locks AF, in addition to releasing the internal clutch. This frees the focus ring, permitting you to focus manually, primarily for close up or portrait shots. This gives the convenience of AF, plus the additional creative control of MF, without changing modes or settings. This simplicity allows even novices to step up to advanced photography techniques.

Dioptre Adjustment Function
The result of valuable feed back from our worldwide users, the Dioptre Adjustment function allows you to adjust the viewfinder in dioptres. This means you can look through the viewfinder without your glasses and still have perfectly focused pictures.

Depth of Field Preview
The ability to continuously monitor the depth of field of your image makes it easy to ensure your subject and background are both in focus and to check focus during macro photography.

Continuous Advance Speed of 3 Frames Per Second*1
Simply hold down the shutter release button to snap off shot after shot of a moving subject.

Optional Metering Modes Give Easy to Use Advanced Functions
Three optional metering modes:14 Segment Honeycomb Pattern Metering, Centre Weighted Average Metering and Spot Metering help you master the subtleties of exposure and get the very best out of each subject and lighting condition.

Flash Modes for Better Pictures, Easily
The Fill Flash Mode enhances backlit subjects by lightening up shadows, Flash Cancel Mode makes the most of soft, natural lighting and Red-Eye Reduction eliminates red-eye caused by night time flash shots.

ADI flash metering
Program Flash 5400HS, 5600HS(D) or 3600HS(D) High-Speed Sync lets you shoot in backlit situations using wider than customary apertures with the built-in flash and normal sync speeds. When using a dedicated external flash unit*3 and a D series lens, ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering ensures proper flash exposures regardless of background or subject reflectance.

*1 When flash is cancelled in MF or single-shot AF mode with fresh battery, without using date imprinting.
*2 When used in conjunction with a D-series lens
*3 When using a dedicated flash unit: 5600HS(D), 3600HS(D) or 2500(D)
