Catch in Focus where you set the camera in AFS mode, set the lens to MF, set a focus point and the shutter will fire when something is in focus. This picture was taken while I was at work.


Beautiful shot, Dale! I didn't realize until I read this post that you actually got this shot while you at work (meaning you had the camera turned on (and left on) for quite a while in CIF mode). I'm curious if you got any more shots. I assume it will fire every time something comes into focus when you set that up, but since I haven't yet tried doing it, I don't know. I'm THIS CLOSE, however, to setting up a little blind on my back patio to shoot birds at my feeders and it would be nice to leave my cameras set to CIF for when I go inside for a break. (B&H FINALLY sent me a shipping notice on my K-3 Thursday!)

A word is worth 1/1000th of a picture... Maybe that's why I use so many words!
