 Post subject: Issue with Apeture Mode
PostPosted: Tue Sep 06, 2011 5:16 am 
I am using a Nikon 5100 , when using Aperture mode, the result is blurred. But while focusing the camera I get the subject in clear focus but after the image is processed and I view it in preview it appears blurred. Can some some tell me what could be the issue.

can you post some samples, if you use a wide aperture it blurs everying beyond and in front of the focus point, the wider the aperture the smaller the DOF. the smaller the aperture the bigger the depth of field.

also what shutter speed is the camera selecting when in aperture mode, might need to bump up the iso to get a faster speed

Could you post, or link to, an example?

Presumably the shutter speed was too slow

Bulr is not only caused by subjects being out of focus, it could also be caused by slow shutter speeds. As others have suggested, could you post an example? This would be easily detectable.

If you're using single point focus and non continual focus then if you're shooting with a narrow depth of field even the slightest recomposition or movement after focussing can cause this.

Try a tripod and critically focussing to see if it's you or the camera.
