Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera
Your Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera is equipped with a AF assist illuminator which makes focus easier when shooting in darker situations.
In spite of that, on occasion, it is quite possible that the camera will fail to achieve sharp auto-focus.
Point and Shoot cameras use a contrast-based focusing system: this works only when the contrast in the composition is high.
When you press the shutter halfway down the camera attempts to focus, but if it shows red brackets it implies that the focus has not been achieved.
Please take care to note this indication, and if you do not see the Green "Focus Lock" indicator, please attempt to recompose the shot.
Release the shutter, press halfway through again and wait for a focus lock.
The sensor on a P&S camera is very small (about 8-9x smaller in surface area compared to DSLRs)
In low light conditions achieving focus can be a challenge for P&S cameras.
These are technical limitations which are not specific to your camera but common to all cameras in the same segment across various camera manufacturers.
