 Post subject: Nikon D3100 AF-F
PostPosted: Sun Jun 19, 2011 5:56 pm 
I bought a D3100 about 8 months ago and JUST NOW found out about the Live View AF-F (Continuous Autofocus), and tried it out for the first time and was amazed by its efficiency. I don't have a problem with its constant refocusing, but the problem that I am now having is that when I switch it to Live View, it focuses just once and when I move the camera, it doesn't refocus. :?
Can anyone explain to me why this happens?

Are you sure the AF mode is still set to AF-F while you're in LV itself?

Positive. From what I know, AF-F is only accessible when in LV. I switch to LV, then press the 'info' button, and the options are AF-S, AF-F and MF. After I choose 'AF-F' for the focus mode, I then choose 'Normal-area AF' for the AF-area mode.

I don't see what the problem is. It seems as though sometimes it works and other times, it's temperamental, and refuses to continuously focus..

I don't know what I'm doing wrong or not understanding.

If you can help me, I thank you in advance.
