Simple 3 ways to focus the camera to infinity

In many cases, we also use the focus of “infinite distance” to shoot, especially to shoot landscape works, such as night scenes, starry sky, Milky Way, and even the Northern Lights. However, many students do not know how to focus the lens to infinite distance, or even cannot take pictures because the camera fails to focus successfully; Here are 3 ways to focus the camera to infinity, you can learn!

(1) Assisting with autofocus

The method of using auto focus to assist beginners is actually the simplest. Follow the steps below:

1. Make sure the camera/lens isAuto Focus (AF)

2. Half press the shutter to focus automatically towards distant scenery or luminous objects (such as distant mountains, the moon, etc.)

3. When you hear the sound of auto focusing, you know that the lens has been focused to infinity

4. Turn the camera or lens toManual Focus (MF), and avoid touching the focusing ring (if any) on the lens, so that your lens will always be locked in the “infinite” focus!

(2) Directly focus manually and watch the “focus ruler”

If your lens has a “focal length ruler” (newer lenses may not have one), you can:

1. Directly adjust the camera to “Manual Focus” (MF)

2. Turn the focus ring and turn to ∞ (infinity)

But be careful that the “∞” (infinity) on some lenses is not accurate. If you want to use this method, please use the method (I) to test it in advance.

(3) Manually adjust to infinite focus mode

If the manual focusing mode of your camera (such as Sony’s no reflection camera) already has the option of “∞” (infinity), you can use it directly without going through the above steps. It’s very simple!
