"55-300mm lens / D5100 camera focus probelm"


Chennai, IN
          

Hi Friends,

I recently bought a new 55-300mm lens for my D5100 to expand my range but i am new to SLR Photography and while i was testing out video modes

with the following settings

Mode : P
AF-F Mode
Normal Area AF

and heard a weird noise or focusing problems .. could it be just my lens or its universal or do i need to ask for a replacement ?

Please Watch the YouTube Video i posted (start from 1m)

Thanks in Advance
Vinu

Hi,

Do you have VR on? If so turn it off.

You should be able to leave VR on but turn it off to make sure it's not the problem.

OK. I just used my D5100 and AFS 18-55mm lens to take a movie. If I am very close the way you are my camera/lens makes the same noise as yours when the scene is not in focus. It's hunting. It won't chatter like that if you use manual focus or in AF if you make a movie at a reasonable distance from the object and keep the scene in focus. It will take some practice. Also since your built in mic is so close to your lens it's picking up and magnifying the noise.

There is nothing wrong with your camera or lens just your technique.

Don't be hard on yourself. It's a learning process for all of us. Just keep at it. Actually by trying to duplicate your problem I learned something new as well.
