#3. "RE: Nikon D3200 focus - Viewfinder vs Live View"
In response to In response to 2



Hi PjonesCET and BGD600,

Thank you both for replying and sorry it has taken me a couple of days to respond.

I've tried some of the things you kindly suggested and will try more over the weekend.

I had already been experimenting with Aperture Priority mode since I got my 35mm f1.8 lens. I have also tried using single point AF mode since I noticed that most of my photos were a little out of focus.

I've found that even with the camera on a tripod and using single point AF mode, photographs (the single AF point specifically) are a little out of focus when using the viewfinder.

Again, when I take the same photo using the live view screen the focus is good. I don't understand why this should make such a difference.

I suppose the answer might be to always use LV mode, but that's not always practical.

Many thanks for your help,
Regards,
Dave
