Re: Focus Trap for Dummies?

Ron, etc.

I'm trying to make this method work this evening and I can't get the camera to fire.

*ist DS
SMC M 50/2.0 (my first LBA, circa 1981)
Wired cable release
Custom Menu-> "Using Aperture Ring" == 2
Drive mode: Continuous shooting

I focus on a spot on the wall and then back it off about a foot to be the focus point. I put the AF/MF switch to AF. I lock the cable release. Movement in front of the camera doesn't trigger anything.

Should I be in Av, Tv, M, or P mode? Will this trigger the flash as well?

Would someone mind detailing the "Focus Trap for Dummies" method?

Thanks

Eric
