I've just started experimenting with Bracketing Burst with the Fn Button assigned. I'm shooting in AF-S and focussing by pressing the Shutter Release Button halfway and then recomposing.
I'm presuming that using Bracketing Burst which requires just one (held) depression of the Shutter Release Button no refocussing occurs.
From the few shots I've taken doing this, it appears to be the case. Can anyone confirm.

Thanks
Derek

Hi Derek,

I think you are correct. In fact, if you place the dial on CL or CH and hold down it is similar and will only focus with the first shot.

Related to that, I leave my shutter setting to CL and just let up after the shot, then if I need more shots, I can just hold it down a bit longer. In this case I would have to lift my finger up all the way then depress the shutter release again to get a new focus.

All this using AF-S.

Hi Charles, Thanks for the feedback. The reason that I'm attracted to the Bracketing Burst feature is that once I depress the shutter release button (after having previously focussed) I don't have to think about how many exposures have fired off. I know it will limit it to the D7000's maximum bracketing capability of 3. The only downside I can see is getting used to depressing the Fn button at the same time.

Derek
