Right out of the box in the "Auto-Everything mode" Scene-Intelligent-auto (the green setting on the mode dial) the camera will focus on the nearest thing. Switch the mode to "P", press the button 1/2 way down and the camera will focus on what ever the little square in the center is pointed at. I'm not trying to talk down to you but if you are new to this camera that's the first thing that comes to mind. BTW, you are going to have to read the manual on this camera.
