When I press the button to take a picture, it always has a delay and I end up missing the shot.

Most camera's need this time to autofocus but if you half depress the button before the camera autofocus should do its job in advance. The picture takes immediately then.

I have a Nikon D60 and my autofocus has stopped working. It is not because of the lense because i have tried other lenses and the auto focus won't work with them either so it must be an issue with the...

You should check custom menu setting 2, and make sure it's set to one of the auto modes. Make sure the lenses you are using are AF-S and not regular AF lenses. The D60 has no autofocus motor, so autofocus only works with AF-S lenses.

I always suggest folks take a look at Ken Rockwell's website also, here's a link to a specific page on autofocus on the D60.

Post a comment here if none of this works and I'll see what else we can do.

Nikon D300 - Auto focus point won't move. Autofocus doesn't work.

The lock that's around the 4-way button that moves the AF point will stop it from moving. The AF switch (says C,S,M) on the body below the lens release button gets knocked to manual and turns off the AF

Nikin D50 autofocus

I figured out that when changing lenses my finger must have hit the little switch and flipped it over to manual focus. I changed it back and it now works. Thanks.

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down

It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

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 D50 Autofocus


I am having a similar problem with my D50's shutter. My problem seems to be related to the position of the camera. If I rotate the camera vertically to the left - it functions fine. Rotated to the right - it acts as is as if the shutter button is not working at all. Horizontally positioned - the shutter works about 85%of the time. Is your problem positionally influenced as well?

Autofocus not working

Are you depressing the shutter button half way prior to snapping the shot you want. Also check to see if any of you setting are changed...if it's on auto and you still are have the same problem then your lens could be dirty.
