AF-Area Mode (Live View)

In live view, the focus area for autofocus is shown in the monitor. Using the multi selector to reposition focus area shifts focus to another part of the frame. What controls how the focus point is selected is AF-area mode.

Live view offers a choice of AF-area modes, including wide- and normal-area AF, subject tracking, and face priority.
