D810 Focus Hunting in LiveView Mode?
Aug 29, 2014


yesterday I photographed a wedding with D810 / Nikon 24-120 mm 3,5 - 5,6 IF-ED. In the civil registry office, it was not very bright. The autofocus was quick and good when using the viewfinder. However when used the LiveView Mode, it was very worse. The D810 needs several seconds to lock find and lock the Focus. The autofocus mode I set to automatic.

Have someone noticed this strange behaviour? When using the ViewFinder I have seen the corresponding Focus Points it has detected. But in LiveView mode I saw only one Focus Point.

Did I miss some Special Setting? I thought the Focus mode should be the same for ViewFinder and LiveView Mode, or?

I hope someone can shed some light on this, if I had make any mistake or not.

Best regards,


Nikon D810
