Trap focus confusion
Jun 9, 2014

I've read several threads of trap focus and several utube videos. They are all either confusing or not to the point.

I have a D800 with the latest firmware update. I am not interested in shutter release on focus. I am only interested in auto release on focus where my finger is not on the shutter. Think wild animals coming into the trap focus location with the photographer not near the camera.

So my question is can the D800 do this? I've read it can't and I've read there are work arounds and I've read that the new firmware upgrade has fixed the problem. So the question is if its fixed how do you do it?
