Focus Mode

autofocus moʊd
Term: Focus Mode Description: A camera's focus mode is the main setting of either autofocus or manual focus. This mode is often changed by a physical switch on the camera, labeled "AF/MF" or on a dial and/or button. Within autofocus, there are often two or three different focus modes as well:
  • Single Focus, where the camera only tries to focus on the subject once and then stops
  • Continuous Focus, where the camera will continually adjust focus to track a moving subject
  • Lastly, some cameras have a fully Auto mode, where the camera determines for you whether to focus in Single or Continuous.
