G5X mk II - How to stop focus frame from moving when I touch the screen

How do I turn off the "feature"? I don't want the focus frame moving to where I touch the screen. I want it centered on the LCD screen almost all of the time.

Hello nokudzo, 

In order to prevent this from occurring you can set the touch ccontrols to Off.  Go into the Menu and to the wrench menu and set touch control to disable.

Thanks, but ... I don't want to lose touch control for other/all functions shown on the screen, those are fine. I just want the focus frame to stay put.

 

any other suggestions?

Hi nokudzu,

 

When shooting with the LCD screen, look for an icon on the bottom left of the screen. Tap it to make sure that it is set to off.

 

To lock the autofocus, press shutter halfway down then press the left button on the back of the camera. That should lock the autofocus.

Thanks, but ... I don't want the focus point rectangle on the LCD screen of the camera to move when I touch the screen. I already had touch for shutter already off.

Disable the touch function in the screen entirely.  Or, switch the camera the camera to MF mode, which disables AF mode.
