Auto Focus Properties

The Cyber-shot HX350's auto focus processor uses 1 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).

Manual focus is also possible with the Sony, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
