Selectable focusing points

The Digital Rebel has seven selectable focus points. In Basic Zone and A-DEP modes, the camera chooses the focus point that covers the closest part of the scene—expect in Sports mode where it uses the center point. However, in Creative Zone modes other than A-DEP (page 58) which always uses auto, you can switch between automatic and manual selection. When manually selecting a focus point, the one being used, called the active focus point, is indicated on the LCD panel with a dash and in the viewfinder with a red dot. Manually selecting a focus point lets you choose which part of the scene is used to focus the camera and also lets you get shots off more quickly since the camera doesn't have to take time calculating where to focus.

A red dot briefly flashes in the AFpoint used to set focus horizontally (right) or vertically (below).
