Re: FoCal is rubbish

Can you please stop assuming things! The photos have been taken using AF-C...

Thanks for the pictures - they help.

3 of the 4 pictures are definitely subjects where Nikon caution AF may not be reliable if aimed at the center of the image - eg page 100 D800 instructions or page 98 of the D3s instruction.
The fourth picture is not first class as an AF target.

2 of the subjects are moving toward the camera. All Nikon cameras come with instructions that say AF-S is for stationary subjects, and to use AF-C for moving subjects.

I suggest testing with better subjects, using AF-C if the subject is moving, before concluding the camera has a fault.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
