Question about Nikon D1X Digital Camera

1 Answer

Good day, I have a Nikon D1X. The shutter button when slightly depressed should engage the AF in the lens. The lens is a Tamron. The camera Auto Focuses fine when you press either of the two AF buttons on the rear of the camera body. Is there somewhere in the menu that controls this. Thanks, John

    I have a D1x, when I try to take a picture I have to click three times before the shutter reacts.

You are correct, there is a setting. Press Monitor, then Menu to get to the menu; go to the thitd menu option (looks like a pencil), select option 4 (AF Activation) and set it to ON (Shutter/AF ON). This will solve your problem.

I bought the new Tamron 20-200 lens and after trying it on my Canon 7D non of my lenses will focus on that camera. What has happened?


Sure you did not switch to manual focus while testing the Tamron? Sure all settings are correct?
If the Tamron still auto focusses on you 7D, check the forums about this. I know Nikon sometimes messes up the firmware, when a non Nikon lens is used, but not on all camera's. And not with every firmware.
I don't know the 7D enough to check more details, but check everything about the AF settings. I can't imagine your lens did something wrong with the camera.

Nikon 18-55mm AF-S/ VR lense shudder?


I believe you're hearing the VR in the lens adjusting. Try turning the VR off and see if you hear the sound. If not, then you have a normal operating lens.

Automatic focus not working


The D40x only autofocuses with the latest AF-S (and old professional AF-I) lenses. Most traditional (screw-type) AF lenses from 1986 through today will not autofocus on the D40x. If your lens says "AF-S," you're fine.
Most lenses sold today for the D40x are AF-S, and so is the included 18-55mm kit lens. Many non-Nikon lenses from Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Sigma and anyone other than Nikon still won't autofocus on the D40x. Try before you buy, but honestly, there isn't much the included 18-55mm lens won't do.
Autofocus systems are fast, but not usually instantaneous. You have to hold the shutter down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the shutter the rest of the way. See Preventing Shutter Delay for more.

Nikon D300 When I depress the shutter half way or fully on my D300 the frame counter reads r27 and the lens (any previously compatible Nikkor lens) will not auto focus. The camera is not set in burst mode...


Only reason the lens will not auto focus when you depress the shutter half way is due to either lens AF switch is set to Manual OR camera body's focus system is on M. There is 3 way toggle switch below the synch port around the lens mount. It should be set to C or S in order for auto focus to work. If all the settings are correct and even "AF-ON", next to rear dial doesn't activate auto focus then the issue maybe in the setting or the body itself. As for the buffer reading r27, I think mine displays r## regardless of burst/continuous mode.

I bought a used Nikon D60 from a friend, used it a

Is it a Nikon mount indeed. What a question!?! Couldn't fit any other mount on the camera!!! Just a guess here, the lens is probably not aa AF-I, an AF-S or a DX lens. The D60 has limited lens usage. The lens types mentioned are the only ones that fully work on the D60. It will work with G types as long as they are also AF-I or AF-S. AF and AF-D lenses will not auto focus. Hope this helps. Will

My nikon d70 wont focus at all


  • Make sure both lens and body are set for autofocus. There are two switches near each other with "AF" and "M" settings.
  • Check the camera's focusing settings, or do a factory reset (from menu) to 'start over'. Usually helps to have AF-Assist on.
  • Try setting the AE/AF-lock button (upper rear, near right thumb when holding camera) to turn on AF. The camera may respond better to this than half-pressing the shutter release.
  • Make sure the lens is fully attached to the camera. You shouldn't be able to rotate the lens without depressing the lens release button, and you should be able see a tight seal between the two.

Nikon d40 autofocus


Look on the left side of the lens. Make sure the button is on A for auto focus and not M for manual. OR not stuck in the middle. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

Nikon D40X stopped auto-focusing yesterday


I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.
