D50 shutter release

  1. I have not been able to get my D50 to capture an image ANY TIME - EVERY TIME I push the shutter release. I have moved the focus from the shutter half press to the rear and do it with my thumb.

    Unlike my D200, which I have configured the same way for focus, that captures an image on every shutter press, the D50 won't do it unless the image is in focus and I have a solid green circle (focus) at the far left in the view finder. I would rather have an image slightly out of focus then no image at all.

    Is there a way?

  2. On the D50, you will need to set your camera to AF-C, Continuous Servor AF or release priority. The camera will then take a picture upon release of the shutter, no matter if subject is in focus or not.

    Hope this helps.
