everywhere except where i want it…


I just got a new Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens and I’m trying to make friends with it, but it just won’t cooperate! It’s a manual focus lens–because I’m the world’s worst researcher– and no matter what I do, it never focuses on the point I want it to focus on. So, adios bitchacho!!! Back it goes. I don’t care if it looks all shiny and new with seductive settings and abilities. It’s driving me bonkers! If anyone has any other ideas, please share. I need all the help I can get!!!

  1. This is a way to change it if using a D5100, but it should work with other Nikon cameras as well
    When looking at the LED information panel, press the [i] button, which will allow you to change the camera settings. Scroll down to AF-area mode, and press ok. On a D5100, you have four options. The automatic setting is auto-area AF. If yours is only selecting a single point of focus, it may be set on single point-AF. If you look through the view finder with single point-AF selected and half depress the release to take the picture, you will see one point of focus flash red. To change which of the eleven points you wish to focus on, you can press the arrow buttons and you will see the respective red flash through the view finder. Hopes that helps 🙂

  2. I’ve also gone out and spent a lot of money on cameras, but the truth is my IPhone camera is literally my favorite. They also have attachable lenses for phone cameras now for better zoom- you should check them out. I’m the newest follower of your lovely blog and would love for you to stop by my site when you get a chance http://www.tairaxo.com I look forward to your visit 🙂
