Randy, I always aim for one of the eyes when shooting people. In this shot the focus point shows dead on where I aimed it below.perfect shot, where was the focus pt ?
i assume you shot this afs and 1 sensor hot (bottom selection on the camera's AF mode) ?Randy, I always aim for one of the eyes when shooting people. In this shot the focus point shows dead on where I aimed it below.
But I have been having issues where a lot of my shots are not in focus and I have been messing with the focus adjustment for each lens thinking it was the lenses at fault but now I think my D700 may be to blame because if I bring the out of focus ones into Capture to view the focal point it seems all of the out of focus ones show that I missed the eye. This is disturbing because the subject is not moving in these cases and I know I had the bracket on the eye like in the one below. Wonder if this is something that can be adjusted. I have been getting this behavior with all my lenses.
Here is a strange one where the focal point is on the left eye but the right eye is in better focus...
But one it is accurate it looks great:
I use the single point on the bottom for portraitsOn the D700's Focus Point Selector switch are you choosing the middle or the last choice towards the bottom? I think the middle choice has the AF assist points and sometimes the D700 will focus right next to the point you choose sometimes.
