Re: AF assist light

No, it doesn't have an AF assist light, but it hardly ever needs one - f1.8 is the widest aperture on any digicam (and also on the 3040 and 4040 of course) apart from the really expensive interchangeable lens SLRs. The maximum aperture is gradually reduced to f2.6 at the full tele end of the zoom, but even that's better than most, and since the focusing is always done wide open (whatever aperture will actually be used to expose the shot), the camera "sees" very well to focus in low light.

Re: AF assist light

No, it doesn't. I had a 2000 and enjoyed it. This one has a faster lens.

Olympus SP800uz. The camera makes sound when I focus on any object, like some motor is moving inside even if I am not using zoom. The sound increases gradually when used for some time.


You are possibly using an Fulltime AF mode for focussing.See user manual page 34 or the AF mode is set to AF Tracking. If these modi are set, the camera continuously tries to focus on the subject, hence the sound.

D90 AF assist light doesn't come one in M mode???


Check to see whether you're set for AF-C in M, A, and P modes. The AF assist doesn't light in AF-C. Auto mode automatically selects AF-S, so the AF assist would come on then.

Low light no focus


The Nikon D100 custom settings option 22 - AF Assist, controls the AF Assist light.
Check if this has been turned off.

This option controls whether the auto-focus assist light comes on in low light to help autofocus
latch onto the subject.

Flash


This is the AF Assist feature. If you don't have a hot-shoe flash mounted, but you do have the pop-up flash raised, the camera will strobe the pop-up flash in low-light situations to provide illumination for the auto-focus to work. You can disable it by turning off the AF ILLUMINATOR option in the "Wrench 1" settings menu.

AF TROUBLESHOOTING


The secondary small mirror that guides the light from the lens to the sensors ( sensors sit at the bottom of the mirror box , underneeth the main mirror ) may be out of position. To check : take lens off and gently lift the main mirror half way up ( pushing up ) and see if the secondary mirror is dangling ( which it should not be doing ). Correct 1) reingage spring 2) reingage hinge.

The 3000Z does not have AF assist, and I assume the 3100Z does not have one either.

AF Illuminator


The AF illuminator allows the auto focus system to focus on dark subjects. When the shutter button is pressed half way, the AF illuminator will light up the subject. The default setting is “ON”.
