Re: From the D800 manual

Just to summarize my observations on AF-C S:

AF Camera settings are a1 = Focus; and a4 = Shutter/AF-On

Scenario 1:

Focusing unto featureless subject, the camera WILL NOT fire since it is OOF

Scenario 2:

Focusing unto featureless subject but near (within maybe 9-focus points) an object which has enough contrast: camera WILL select the nearest focus point and WILL fire

AF Camera settings are a1 = Focus; and a4 = AF-On

Scenario 1:

Focusing unto featureless subject, the camera WILL fire even OOF

Scenario 2:

Focusing unto featureless subject but near (within maybe 9-focus points) an object which has enough contrast: camera WILL select the nearest focus point and of course WILL fire
