Question:
TOPIC: Poor autofocus performance.

Answer:
Autofocus does not perform well under the conditions listed below. If the camera is unable to focus using autofocus, use manual focus (if this feature is present in your camera) or use focus lock to focus on another subject at the same distance and then recompose the photograph. There is little or no contrast between the subject and the background. Example: subject is the same color as the background. The focus area contains objects at different distances from the camera. Example: subject is inside a cage or behind glass. The subject is dominated by regular geometric patterns. Example: a row of windows in a skyscraper. The focus area contains areas of sharply contrasting brightness. Example: subject is half in the shade. The subject appears smaller than the focus area. Example: focus area contains both foreground subject and distant buildings. The subject contains many fine details. Example: a field of flowers or other subjects that are small or lack variation in brightness.
