"D3200 Focus Priority Only ?"


Scotland, GB
          

A quick question for D3200 users. Can you switch from focus priority to release priority ?

I had a D3100 and it would only use focus priority. Given I prefer to focus using the central focus point and recompose, the camera often refused to take a picture if the central point ended up over an OOF area, or where there was no contrast, like a clear blue sky.

That drove me nuts and I don't want another camera that tries to tell me when I can or can't take a picture !!

I sold the D3100 because of this, although in other respects it was a good camera as a small back-up to my D700.
