P1000 - Making the shortest focus distance shorter
Hi, I have noticed that the minimu focus distance is shorter if you use manual focus (insted of auto).
Has anyone else noticed this?
That's something like this I've remarked today, not with MANUAL mode, but by zooming in with MACRO instead of AF. At first it was completely accidentally:
Then I made a cursory test:
I'm sure at P900 it's the same, but it never crossed my mind to test it
Thank you for starting that interesting topic!
Happy shooting my friend,
Interesting...yes to macro or prefocus at an approx subject distance helps to significantly reduce "hunting".
I will try to perform a more comprehensive test about the closest focus distance AUTO vs MANUAL to see if I can cement my theory.
BTW I think that over it will be nearly 1 year since the P1000 was announced...it feels like I had it all my life!
Yes, I've noticed this too.
I'll usually manual focus to closest distance and then move the camera to get what I want in focus.
Great examples, Augustin !
