In Topic: D7000 autofocus settings query

05 January 2012 - 06:48 AM

When I first started using this camera I was amazed at the autofocus speed. I have been learning the camera and have fiddled with almost all settings but now find that my autofocus has slowed down a lot and cannot remember my starting point.

I'm using AF S and single point focus right now and have tried all 3 number of focal point settings since noticing the slow down. I do not think that there has been much change in water clarity but I'm wondering if an increase in micro particles might be a cause? Any suggestions and your preferred settings will be appreciated.

I can't see any settings apart from live view that would make autofocus slower. Are you using the same lens as when you started ?

Yes, according to the info I have from Hugyfot, the existing mounting plate can be replaced with the new removable tray. And that's exactly what I'm waiting for. I called Hugyfot today, and the locking mechanism of the tray isn't ready yet, so I'll need some more patience. I'll post a few pictures as soon as I have the new system installed on my housing.

BTW, one other (very minor) annoyance I discovered with the Hugyfot housing is that the Hugycheck battery needs to be installed before the camera. Usually I realize that only afterwards, and I have to restart all over again. Maybe I should place a warning sticker on the tray to remind me :-)

That would be interesting to see. I'm quit pleased with my hugyfot, but the mounting of the D7000 inside can be a bit difficult

Hugyfot is working on a new tray system for mounting the camera in the housing. It consists of a removable tray that attaches to the camera and then slides into the housing. Pascal showed me a prototype when I visited the Hugyfot office for some info on the D7000 housing. Last time I pinged Pascal, I was told it should be ready soon...

Do you know if exisiting D7000 housings can have the new removeable tray fitted ?
