Camera has a very slow auto-focus.

This issue could be caused by having out of date firmware or the size of the default auto-focus box is to large.

Reducing the size of the auto-focus box.

1. From the normal shooting screen, press the "zoom" button.

2. Press the "info" button once. 7x will be displayed in the bottom left corner.

3. Press the "up" button once, 10x will be in the bottom left corner and the auto-focus box gets smaller, press again you get 14x the auto focus box gets smaller.

4. Press "ok" once, now you can move the box around using the keypad.

After the camera powers down the auto-focus box will return to normal size, press the zoom button to use the small box again.
