Re: Tell Me About Your Stupid Mistakes

Not quite as bad, although I'm sure I've forgotten bigger boners than this: I had just recently read an article and seen a video on the use of the AF-on option on cameras like the D600. So I figured I try it. But whenI got to the basketball court, my camera wouldn't focus. I thought maybe it was the my 70-200 VrI which I had sent in to Nikon a year prior to fix a focusing issue. So I changed lenses. Focusing didn't work on my 24-120 either. Oh-oh, My D600, which escaped the dust and oil issue, has a focusing problem. Pound the head, shake the head, try to manually focus, give up on it, put the camera back in the bag. Then it struck me, I had changed the settings on the camera, but by that time, half the game was over.
