D5100 focus questions - Sports
Jun 4, 2012

Thanks for reading...

I sold my D700 and bought a D5100 in the mean time before anything fun comes out (D600 or D7100) and have a quick question

I had it out at a perfect summer day taking some action shots of softball. Using Shutter priority and trying to keep focus points on the target. Im having hit and miss success with focus even though the focus points are red right on target.

I used continuous mode and as you can see the first shot is perfect...

then the very next shot, is way off but focus point is right on her perfectly.. (not sure if you can see focus point in shot)

i am using AF-C with single focus point and it has not moved from center. on aperture, I can see the focus point and it is center chest both shots...
