The other day I went to a one horse village called Runa, close to my home in\nPortugal, to take some pictures of an abandoned RR station, when I saw these\ntwo wild dogs. I tried my best to have them come to me, but no way. They did\nseem to like the D300, because they took turns in posing for me!\n\nWhen I came home, I looked at the pictures and they all seemed out of focus!\nI finally found it: the dynamic focus area was set to 51 point 3D. Now I\nassumed it would not be active if you choose Single point AF with the AF\narea selector. But it doesn't seem to focus on the target. Look at the\npictures. I focused on the dogs heads, but they are not sharp. It seems\nright after or before they are. Is this a flaw or overlooked issue? I talked\nto the importer and they were very eager to get my camera fixed. Like they\nknew about it? Maybe I just overlooked something, but the manual isn't very\nhelpful either. Anybody know why?\n\nAnother question is the AF Area selection. Why would you choose 9 or 21\npoints if you have 51? Does it save battery time? Does it have other\nadvantages?\n\nEven if you have the AF selector on single or dynamic and in the menu you\nhave 9 points, you can still choose any of the 51 points. Any answers?\n\nSorry, I'm a little lost, like my two new RR dog friends ;-)\n\n[URL]http://atlantic-diesel.com/Dog1.jpg[/URL]\n\n[URL]http://atlantic-diesel.com/Dog2.jpg[/URL]\n\n[URL]http://atlantic-diesel.com/Dog3.jpg[/URL]\n\n[URL]http://atlantic-diesel.com/Dog4.jpg[/URL]\n\nAren't they precious?
