"D7000 DOF button"


Lincoln, US
          

I discovered yesterday when using my SB800 flash that if it is on and my finger touches the DOF button the flash fires continually or stays lit until I turn off the camera.
Is this a general bug in the camera or do I have a defective camera.
Thanks for your help.

It could be possible that you have Custom Setting e4 (Modeling Flash page 228 in the manual) set to "On". When e4 is set to "On" and the DOF button is pressed the flash will fire so that you can see the effect the flash will have on the subject.

The default setting is the ON state for the modeling flash, FYI. Many people suggest that this and the AF assist light should have been set to OFF in the default state for the camera. ***Note to Nikon...***

My reasoning for not using the AF assist light all th time is sometimes I want more candid shots of people and when the light comes on it draws thier attention.

Is the default setting for AF assist light set to "off" for earlier Nikon models? What about current professional models?
