Quick MX-1 PF question...

On the WG-3 when it is in autofocus mode if you simply fully depress the shutter release it jumps to PF and fires the shot. If you press halfway (even for a little fraction of a second) it does the normal AF and then fires when fully depressed. It makes it a little more responsive and gives the option for a very quick shot when needed.

Does the MX-1 function in the same manor?

Thanks,

Shawn

Yes that's exactly how it works.

Thanks, glad to hear the MX-1 has that option. Todays Woot is very tempting......
