    I only see one sensor and it's stuck in one area in all situations.
    Can the camera software be rebooted?

You cannot see all 51 AF points in the viewfinder. The purpose for this is not to block your view of the actual view. But the AF points are there. Just press the multi selector button to move the AF points around

Hi, I have a Nikon D70s. and I am using it on manual setting. the focus area is locked on the right hand side rectangle, and it does mater what I do still not working or locking on other top, bottom or...


You choose the focus area with the cursor button. It can be locked with the switch below it !!! Several settings can be monitored in the top display, 5 points for the scenery programs, chosen area for the M A S P programs. This is also a nice way to monitor what all the scenery programs do with the settings. Good luck (check the lock switch)

HOW DO I SET MY CAMERA TO AUTO FOCUS


The D90 has three different autofocus modes. In the AF-S mode it will not shoot until it has focused. In the AF-C mode it will shoot when you press the shutter release button even if has not focused. In the AF-A mode the camera switches between the AF-S and AF-C modes so either can apply.Also, bear in mind that the camera doesn't really know what you're taking a picture of. It may focus on something other than your subject. If you're in the single-area AF mode then you control which of the eleven focus points the camera uses. In any of the dynamic-area AF modes the camera decides.For full details on how the various modes work, please consult your manual. You might also check out the Nikon D90 video tutorial.

How to get several focus points in a d7000 viewfinder?


Hi, On the D7000 you need to press the button on the side of the camera that's in the middle of the AF/M switch and then you use to switch to decide whether it's in 1 point autofocus (hence forth called AF), 9 point dynamic area AF, 21 point dynamic area AF, 39 point dynamic area AF, 3D tracking AF or auto area AF. If you need more help with switching AF modes let me know and I can help you out =)

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.

Wrong icon when selecting dynamic area


The D40 Dynamic area focus starts on the centre AF area then moves the focus to follow the subject.
The camera has followed something to the right and selected the right focus area.
This is normal.

You could select Single Area in the menu and move the area back to the middle using the rear AF Sensor Selector.

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.


In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

Manual focus points 40D


Try checking C.Fn III, 3: AF point selection method. Yours might still be on option 2.

0: Normal - Works by pressing the AF Point button and then the Multi-controller.

1: Multi-controller direct - Press the multi-controller to directly select an AF point (without first having to press the AF Point button). Pressing the AF button reinstates all AF points for auto AF point selection.

2: Quick Control Dial direct - turn the Quick Control Dial to select AF points. In this mode, AF points will not be displayed on the LCD panel.

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months...


I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:
**************************

Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which only takes effect in the creative modes (Manual, Av, Tv, P, etc)

There should be a button on your camera that has a grid like pattern above it, like
-
- - - - -
-

or so. press that, look through the viewfinder, and move the shutter or rear wheel, you should see the different AF points like up in red, and as you turn different ones will light up, and eventually all of them. also, you can look on the screen on top (or back, if its a rebel) and it will show you which ones are selected while in that mode, instead of looking through the viewfinder.

AF Area function


You can use the AF Area function to change the location of the Auto focus mark to the left, right, up, or down depending on the location of the object that you wish to focus on.
