A friend of mine asked me to take a look at his daughters D3100 as the images seemed soft. I am not familiar with the 3100 but he knows I have Nikon equipment and thought I might be able to help. I downloaded about 60 images from her card (of 1400) and on screen it was quickly evident that all were out of focus, many very badly. I checked the basics and it appears her setting are correct (all default) and the camera has autofocus and VR on. I changed to single point autofocus and took several shots and all were out of focus. With the shutter button half depressed I could see the that the camera was focusing (I'm just not sure on what). The camera is about two years old and I doubt more than 3,000 shutter actuations.
Are auto focus problems common on the D3100? Is it possible I missed a setting that someone might have mistakenly changed?
Will appreciate any help/advice, Jim B
