Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I have a Nikon D40 with the original lense, a AF-S NIKKOR 18-55.
I also have a AF-S NIKKOR 55-200 lense.
The 200 lense works fine, and auto focus works with the current camera settings.
However, when I put the 18-55 back on, the focus area in the viewfinder flashes red instead of black when it is finding the focus area.
Did I adjust a setting by mistake???
No, I don't think so, there could be differences between the Auto and the P setting. But the red flashing is where your camera is currently focusing on. It's possible that the black was indicating the focus box, but it was not latched on to something with complete focus, which then is indicated by the red flashing. Check this link to read up further on this. I may not have pinpointed it exactly, because I have a D70s, but that's what I found so far. You'll maybe have to reset everything and see if it's still there, otherwise, it's a setting. =)
