How to set the focus mode on the Nikon D7500 camera
- Step 1
You may first need to turn on Nikon the camera by pressing the shutter button. Then, release the shutter button. Your system will go into sleep mode, or automatically shut down when this happens. Also, ensure that the lock on the focus-selector is not locked to the L position. You can change the focus point by moving the white marker located on the switch towards the white dot.
- Step 2
Once you have focused on your subject successfully, the camera will display a dot at its left end in the viewfinder. As long as the shutter button is pressed midway, your focus will remain locked.
- Step 3
It’s very simple. Once you have taken the desired shot, click on the shutter button and hold it down until the shutter release is released. When you have achieved focus, a white dot will appear.
These tips will help you focus better and work with your camera more effectively
- When your current focusing distance is between the subject and the white dot, triangles will be displayed in place of the white dots. The arrow that focuses to the right indicates that the subject is in focus. If the arrow is pointed to the left, it indicates that the focus has been moved behind the subject.
- Low light can cause problems for the autofocusing system. After some struggle, it will eventually focus on what you want. Manual focusing is an option if you don’t want to waste time.
- Keep in mind that the camera will not release the shutter button when it cannot find the subject to focus. This setting is the default. You can still set the shutter button to release despite focus.
- The camera can be set to beep after you have achieved the focus point. To enable or disable the Beep Off or On option, go to the Setup menu. This is a good idea, as you may miss the white dot a lot. You will hear the beep without having to move your eyes.
- The subject can be moved away from the focal point. You will need to set up the scene before your subject comes under the focus point. The shutter button can be pressed midway through to fix the focus. You can then reframe the scene as you wish.
