  1. trifle correction

    These actions can also be viewed (and practiced) on the LCD Monitor if the Shooting Settings Screen in on (press the INFO Button) before pressing the AF Point Selection Button (see Figure 55).

    ???should read “…shooting settings screen IS ON…”???

    took a while to figure out what the ‘shooting settings screen’ was …

    1. Thanks for pointing that out – sorry about the typo. I will make the correction and note it here, and come up with a way to clarify what the Shooting Settings Screen is.
