I was a Nikon user for four years and I like it better than the Canon I occasionally borrowed from a friend. But, because of financial needs I have sold my camera.
Last week, a friend gave me a Sony A37 plus two lenses (18-135 SAM and 55-300SAM). I like the camera because of its interface. However, I find it weak on the one I used most often, the selecting the focus point because it takes several steps for me to do it. What I normally do (using the Nikon) was to choose one specific focus point, then recompose. However in the A37, when I recompose, the focus does not lock with my original focus point even if I would press the AE lock button.
While in the Nikon, I don't even have to press the AE button. I can halfpress then move the focus point easily, then click when I find it OK. That enables me to track my subjects especially when it is a dancer or a bird.
Any advice please.
on autofocus using AF-S should do the same thing.
"I can halfpress then move the focus point easily, then click when I find it OK"
According to the manual (Pg 108) it's the same on the Sony, but make sure you're using single shot autofocus.
Half press the shutter to hold focus.
Ah, "refocus" rather than "recompose"!
