FB Tube and Nikon D5100

Post by JonRei » 03.06.2019 18:05

I'm strugling to get my FB Tube to work with Nikon D5100. On my D7200 where I use AF-ON focus technique, i.e. not focus assigned to release button and it works perfectly well. But on D5100 I cannot reasing the release button and remove the link to focus. That means that for each time the FB Tube shift focus, the autofocus will turn focus back again and focus does not shift forward. Any advise for this or experience from others?

Seems like you might have D5100 set to AF-C focus mode. Please try setting it to AF-S.

I was not familiar with the D5100, but eventually found the AF manual setting in a menu (my d7200 has a switch for this). That solved the issue, everything works fine.
