p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · nikon d7000 not highlighting red focus


My d7000 recently began to stop getting the red highlight when locking on. This happens sporadically and with different lenses. I thought it was a cold weather response at first but then it happened indoors.

Thanks

Something is beginning to fail. If it's under warranty, get it in to Nkon.

Mike,

Assuming you are referring to the autofocus point and viewfinder turning red when focusing, what is your setting for menu item a4 (AF point illumination)? One of the options here is "AUTO". With that setting, the camera decides when to flash the red illumination in the viwfinder when focusing. You will get the red illumination when the scene is relatively darker and you will not get the red illumination when the scene is relatively brighter. Your other choices are ON and OFF which should be self explanatory. Check page 209 of the owners manual FMI.

Notwithstanding the advice given previously in this thread, I would check obvious simple things before shipping my camera off for service.

Thanks for the insight. I was not about to ship it believe me. I will look into that asap. I really appreciate it.
