Re: What is the direct manual focus (DMF)?

With DMF function selected, focus can be manually changed after it has been once confirmed using camera's AF system. DMF cannot be used during continuous advance.

How can I stop the metering on a Sony a77 Camera?


When you are using non brand lenses, with an adapter ring, most camera's can't communicate, so you have to use the lens as a non chip lens and it only will work in full manual mode. So switch the camera to M (manual) and then do manual focus and manual aperture on the lens. When you shoot a picture, look on the histogram if you need a faster or slower shutter speed and dial in the speed (manual) you think is correct.

My d80 wont take pictures in auto,P,S or A modes. Will click in M mode but no picture. What am I doing wrong? Treied to reset, but still does not work.


The camera will not take a picture in P, S, or A if the camera is in Auto Focus mode - and is unable to focus. Make sure that the Auto / Manual focus switch on the camera body AND the lens are BOTH in an Auto Focus mode. A tip off would be that you do not hear the lens focus motor running while trying to find focus.

If you do hear the focus motor, you may not have sufficient light on the subject for the camera to find a contrast "edge". In this case, the focus motor will hunt from where ever it is all the way in one direction, and then all the way in the other - trying to find focus. You'll need to provide more light or if you have the focus assist lamp (on the front of the camera) enabled - make sure your fingers are not blocking it while 1/2 pressing the shutter.

You can take pictures "all day long" in Manual Focus mode regardless of whether the subject is in focus or not. The lower left corner has a green circle or disc that indicates proper focus. Otherwise, a green triangle shape will be visible close by.

More info on Focus is available here. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

The manual focus ring on my camera doesn't work. The ring turns but does not seem to adjust the focus. Automated focusing still works. How to fix it?


Two methods:-

1. Use the slider switch on the left of the camera to set it to MF (manual focus). The focus ring is an electronic one rather than a physical control like the zoom ring, so the response can seem slow.

2 Go into the camera menu and enable DMF (Direct Manual Focus). This allows you to override the autofocus simply by adjusting the focus control, but it does not work if the slider switch is set to the AF C setting (continuous autofocus), it only work in the AF-S (AF only activates once when the shutter is half pressed).

If this is a brand new camera and it won't focus and you've read the manual and followed the directions, then you should return the camera.

Focusing problem


Well, stupid me, I didn't realize there is a diopter adjustment button directly to the right of the viewfinder. I would NEVER have known it was there, but after asking my photo-nerd friends all of a sudden the solution was apparent. Still a wasted day of shooting, but hey now I don't have to look like an idiot taking my camera somewhere to be serviced!

Manual focus points 40D


Try checking C.Fn III, 3: AF point selection method. Yours might still be on option 2.

0: Normal - Works by pressing the AF Point button and then the Multi-controller.

1: Multi-controller direct - Press the multi-controller to directly select an AF point (without first having to press the AF Point button). Pressing the AF button reinstates all AF points for auto AF point selection.

2: Quick Control Dial direct - turn the Quick Control Dial to select AF points. In this mode, AF points will not be displayed on the LCD panel.
