Hi Paul,

still think he was using flash in AFc and then switched to AFs to have focus assist.

He wrote :I had it set up for flash, AF-C single point, center point, focus priority
Then he continued: I had to switch to AF-S, and the red AF-assist illuminator in order to lock focus

About ten messages later he wrote:I took a picture with no flash, and it was f/4.0 at 1/80 at ISO 3200.
But this was to describe the circomstances after someone asked about them.

Where do you think the red led from the selftimer comes in play.?

I don't think it does.  He was using flash most of the time.  When he refers to AF assist light I believe he is talking about the assist light on the flash.  Nowhere in his post does he mention self-timer.

Btw. I don't use a Df nor did I read the manual for this particular thread.

Ciao, Han
