AE lock

The AE lock enables the photographer to focus upon a subject or area, then depress the AE lock button and maintain the same focus distance. For example if you want to focus upon the near corner of a building but have the far side in the middle of the picture. You would focus on the near side while it is centered in the image, then depress the AE lock and re-compose the picture with the far side int eh center of the image. You then snap your picture while still holding the AE Lock. This also works well for action photography.
