| p.1 #1 · D800 focusing problem or as Johnny Gross's dad used to say... |
Beautiful, beautiful, just #$%^&ing beautiful.
Sometimes something or someone is so far out of plumb that you start to question your own sanity. Tell me it's not me, please.
I sent some pix to Nikon technical support of my new-to-me D800 focusing with its left, center and right focus points. Back focuses a little on left, a little less on center, and front focuses on right. Don't know, though, if it is enough to worry about.
Anyway this back from technical support just now. Names are redacted to protect the ignorant, uh innocent. And the reply came not within 24 hours, as Nikon says it should, but rather three days later. Anyway:
Dear XXXXX XXXXXX,
Thank you for contacting Nikon and sending us some sample images. We have reviewed your images. Please try shooting in an exposure mode other then aperture priority and use matrix or center-weighted metering. Shooting in aperture priority and spot metering will cause parts of the picture to be out of focus. If changing the camera setting does not resolve your issue please try resetting the camera to its factory default settings.
If you have any further questions please click on the link above this email and reference incident number XXXXXX-XXXXXXX.
I just called technical support, and the guy who answered asked if I had tried the suggestion and then said the person who wrote me the email would call me back within five or 10 to explain what she was talking about. Should be interesting. This really happened. Honest.
