Hi
Recently my F5 has developed a mind of its own, it will continue to autofocus after I have taken a shot, Some times when carrying it with the power turned on and the meter still active it will focus and take a picture . Sometimes when composing a shot and autofocus has accursed the image it continues to make minute adjustments.
I cleaned the contacts in the lens & in the camera , still acting on its own. . Not every time , sometimes once or twice in a roll of 36. Seems to be worse if the camera is swinging on the strap or in my hand.
Have tried single & continuous modes & dynamic focusing on and off,
Battery is fully charged .
No weird action when power off , and meter has shut off
Any ideas ???
is their any factory reset button on this camera ?
Do you think something has been changed in the costume menu setting.
Love the camera and am putting up with these issues
THANKS FOR YOUR IDEAS .
