"Missing D800 Focus Point Information?"
Tue 26-Mar-13 04:11 PM by johno


Is anybody else here not seeing the focus point information from their D800 in NX?

I'm thinking it is not setting related, because the meta data in the d800 image is much more sparse than from my D200, for example. The d200 exif shows focus mode, etc, but not the d800 exif.

Is this a known issue?

All of the data files are propagated from both my D800s into VNX2. File info 1, file info 2, camera info, exposure, flash, image settings and picture controls are all filled. You maybe looking at an import setting that is excluding the data.

Thanks

Interesting. But I am importing the D200 file into the same open copy of NX2 as the D800 image.

Meta data window is the same -- open on both at the same time.

I just opened two images directly from my desktop -- D300 and D800 and the exif is much different here too.

Is your D800 Exif showing you focus mode? Can you see the focus point displayed when you select that option?

Nx2

Just updated to latest this morning. However I did not restart yet, and the version I had predates the d800 by a long while.

I will see after a reboot.

The software verion is NX2 -- version 2.0.

A reboot after update did not change anything. The focus point info is missing, from the image and the metadata.

Are you saying with NX2 and a D800 image, if you select "show focus point" it will lay the red rectangle on the image?

And in the metadata panel you can see the focus mode, etc. under camera settings?

The latest version of ViewNX2 is 2.7.4. Version 2.0 is quite outdated.

Bear in mind that the focus point will not always display, for one thing it depends on whether the camera believed focus had been acquired.

Thanks

The software promoted me to update when I opened it yesterday, so I thought that was it. I'll see about finding the update and check agains.

Thanks
