My NEX-3N refuses to take an out of focus picture
In reply to Sir Punk, Feb 18, 2014

Occasionally, I share similar frustration with OP. This usually happen when I try to catch a moment and moved my camera very quickly. For some reason, my 3N (I don't think this is specific to 3N) will refuse to take picture unless it found something to focus. And if I release my finger off the shutter before a picture is taken, the camera simply pretend that I never press it.

This is very different from my XZ-1, which it will try to focus and take a picture regardless.
