d5100 af-on + af-c and focus issues
Aug 28, 2012

Hi, I believe I set the focus point (at the below photo) to her right eye but the machine clearly made the focus to her right finger.

I used the af-on system for focusing and because it is a kid's photo (not a stable subject) ,the focus mode was af-c and 9 point dynamic area mode.

I should have been holding the af-on button (not to lose the continious focus) while I pressed the shutter.

Just wanted to ask what did I do wrong so that the focus was not at the eye.
camera is d5100.

can it be related with a3 settings (I believe it was set to off)
or with af-c priority? it was set to release...(should it be set to focus??)

thank you
Melih
