I don't think it is something you did wrong. What you can do is go into menu, and clear "All camera settings". This will set it back to default mode. Then try to see what does on af on lense. See if will work on mf mode as well.

Automatic mode is not working and the manual mode


The manual can be had from Nikon directly, here. The blurry results are probably due to an improper mode focus selection. Are you using a supported lens? A list of supported lenses is provided on pg. 157 of the manual, but this chart is easier to understand. Some lenses have an Auto / Manual focus selector switch. Some are shown as "A-M" or "A/M-M". Set an A-M switch to A or if A/M-M to A/M for Auto focus. Additionally, auto-focus is only supported on Nikon compatible lenses that bear the AF-S or the AF-I mark with built-in motors. If you've got a compatible lens attached, there may be a setting in the menu that is causing a problem. It will be far easier to simply reset the camera to factory default state than try to go through them all. See pages 119 & 124 for the Reset Shooting Options and Reset Setup Options procedure, and try shooting again.

Hopefully that will get you going.

I have a eos40D, when in AF it wont focus nor shoot pics


Hi. Good Camera... Not being funny.. But do you have the instruction manual. If not first try resetting the camera. Once done, if you can live without live view don`t bother setting it up.
How to reset:-
-set the mode to manual
-press menu, scroll to the third yellow box with the spanner icon.
-scroll to Clear all camera settings,choose clear and confirm your choice.
When you are shooting make sure your lens is switched in AF mode.
Try this first and get back to me.

Nikon D80 - Singe Focus Area


once you have your settings, is there an option in the menu to save your profile? ( I do not have a Nikon DSLR..) If you can, try saving your profile and then restart again.

"Auto" modes generally are designed to reset to the pre-defined automatic settings, so it may not be possible to keep your changes every time.

Also, you can update the firmware, however there is no mention of any changes which should affect this issue.

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.

Shutter release delay


I have same problem with my Rebel XTI and asked the problem to Canon USA. Here is the answer of Canon USA and it seems worked with my camera.

Resetting the camera back to default standards may solve the problem.
Please put the camera in AF mode instead of MF. In order to reset the camera back to default standards, we recommend you perform the following
steps:

1. Turn the camera ON in the P (Program) Mode.

2. Press the MENU button.

3. Scroll over to the Tools2 menu, then scroll down to Clear all settings.

4. Highlight the Clear all settings option and press the SET button.

5. Highlight the OK option and press the SET button.

At this point, the camera should be reset back to factory standards.
Also, try a different lens. If the camera still does not work, then the camera will need to be serviced.

Hoping to help finding a way to solve your problem.

Noise during video recording


Turn off Continuous AF (auto focus) to prevent recording camera noise during video capture. When you turn off Continuous AF, you may notice a narrower area of focus or depth of field, especially if you zoomed to a telephoto position before recording. Turn the Mode dial to Video, then press the Menu button. Highlight the Continuous AF menu, then press the OK button. Highlight Off, then press the OK button. (On is the default.) Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen. This setting remains until you change it, change the Mode dial, or turn off the camera.
