Re: Having Trouble with Autofocus

Hi, as a pleased user of the D750 for several years I agree to others here that you should try to use back button af only + release mode. That way the camera will fire even if the subject is slightly out of focus. But from what you describe I find it puzzling that nothing happens when you pull the trigger. My experience with this camera is that the af is, under most circumstances, fast and accurate so you should at least get one shot even when using focus mode. With af-c (continuously) and if the subject isn’t moving very fast the camera should be able to refocuse almost instantly and allowing you to get several shots in one burst even with focus mode, but not as long bursts as when using release mode. Of course this can be affected by which lens you use. If the lens doesn’t hold up af speed wise with the camera then the shutter will not fire when using focus mode.

Happy Shooting!
