"Autofocusing and bracketing"



          

I have a question about how autofocus works when bracketing is being used. I was doing some bracketed shots when I noticed my first shot would be in focus but the two following shots out of focus. Does the autofocus refocus each time a picture is took in the bracketing series? Or does it stay locked? I ask because I think I was probably focusing and then recomposing and doing the bracketed shots so it might refocus. I was shooting in continuous mode so all 3 shots where done in a single shutter press.

Chris,

In AF-S it only focuses once (in AF-C focus isn't required).
Probably you moved while it was taking the 2/3 bracketed shots; so your result is to be expected.
So this is not the same as using Single mode and pressing the shutter 2/3 times.
