"D60 autofocus question"


GE
          

My D60 with the 200mm lens (the basic bundle lens) always wants to focus on the right spot. I shoot my daughter's soccer games and I would normally like to have it always focus on the center spot, but it just won't (maybe rarely). Not sure if this happens with other lenses. Can I tell it which spot (left, center, right) to focus on. Of course, this camera only has the 3 spot focusing.

Thanks,

Russell

Hi Russell,

Welcome to Nikonians!
What exposure mode are you using?
If you are using Sports mode, the default setting is probably Dynamic Area AF.
If you use P,S,A, or M exposure modes, you can set the AF Area mode to Single Point (see page 58 in the D60 Users Manual then use the Multi-Selector to choose the center AF point.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Well, crud, I didn't see that the notification about your answer had come in to my email and I was looking around and found the answer at Ken Rockwell. But that was more than a half-hour after your answer came in. I guess I didn't expect an answer that quick on a Saturday evening.

Thanks!
