Normally the camera measures the distance to the subject using the 3 auto focus frames (left, center and right auto focus frames) in the viewfinder and selects the most appropriate point automatically. You can also select any one of the three points.

My Nikkon DX 18-55 Nikkor doest focus subject


hello,first off,please do read through the manual that came with the camera,and at first have it close by as you go through the basic's of turning on the camera to all the way to the medium-to-advanced level guidance from the manufacturer.what you do need to do is,simply leave any control's(buttons/switches etc)well alone,until you are quite conversant with their purpose.it may well sound obvious to the casual browser who happens to read through my notes,but they are important.with the focusing ring,it may well be ok,and not suffered any undue damage.when you have gained a little expertise with the various controls,aim your camera at a distant object,and focus there with the auto focus feature,keeping your finger on the button,have a look at the barrel,to see what distance scale it has rotated to,and see if it is approximately correct,or simply measure from that point with a builders tape measure.hope that helps, cheers.

Autu focus


Best thing you can do is focus manually, using the little green dot in the bottom left hand corner of the viewfinder for assistance.
The 'lag' is due to the camera deciding the focus point, passing it to the motor in the lens, by which time the subject hs moved and so it tries to fix again by moving through the range.

Its annoying, but focusing manually, although not a solution per se, is the only option.
Sorry mate.

Cannot focus on a particular subject


If the camera is having a difficult time auto-focusing, you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance from you and then move the camera back to the intended subject and take the picture without losing focus. First, turn the camera on and locate the Autofocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away as the subject the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While holding the shutter button halfway down, aim the camera at the original subject and press the shutter button all the way down.
