Sony RX10 IV – Auto Focus Areas, Modes, and Related Features Explained

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV

In this Sony Camera Video Tutorial I will cover Focus area, Focus mode, Pre-AF, Eye-AF, Back Focus, Face Detection, Center Lock-on AF, Lock-on AF, and AF Area Registration, using the Sony RX10 IV as the demo camera body.

All the recent Sony cameras work the the same way for the most part, therefore these tutorials can be applied to the Sony A9, A7r III, A7r II, A7s II, A7 II, A6500, A6300, RX1R II, RX1R, Rx10 III, RX10 II, RX10, RX100 V, RX100 IV, RX100 II, and so forth…

Sony offers several different focus modes and tons of focus related features, which you can find in the manual/ Help Guides, but I think it’s much easier to just watch a video that explains it for you.
I’m a visual learner, and until I see it done, I just don’t really get it 100%. I basically read the manual then play with the camera until I understand it as best I can, then I create the video to teach said concept, as you will see below. I hope it helps you out, and please let me know what you think!

For reference, you can click on these Sony RX10 IV guides below and just search for any given setting. It really works well and can help find a feature or setting quickly when learning the camera!

Just enter your camera model in the area provided and a page with all the available manuals will come up:
