Here id a PDF that explains it far more accurately

AF explained.

I would only add in testing, I have found even AF-area mode 39pt acts more as a panning enhancement vs tracker across the frame like AF-Area mode 3D does.


That is one of the most informative articles I have ever read........and perhaps even explains why I never found dynamic area to be to my liking.........Perhaps since I understand how it works I can take advantage of its features.

I need to spend more time with the above article and then try to put the info into practice.


Ed_arizona passed it on first. Very informative and does well to explain. Nikon should hire the original author. It applies to just about all the newest Nikon AF units.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)

When I get this 7000 (OR 7100?) I will print out the PDF for sure, manuals do not explain it nearly as good
