    Re: weird blurry pictures with d3200

    I do not have the experience that the others on this thread do (some I'm sure have forgot more than I know), but here is my two cents from having practiced these same shots.

    As said, the aperture needs to be upped f5.6 - 8.

    I am also suspicious of the 3D tracking. The saying, "jack of all trades, master of none." You have so many moving objects that I suspect the camera is trying to find the best compromise for everything the camera is looking at but not truly focusing anything.

    My best shots for this same shooting occurred with ISO 400, f5.6-8, shutter 1/1000+ (depending on light), and my focus on AF-C (but not 3D).

    Anyway, that's my two cents, but I am most suspicious of the 3D tracking trying to find a balance within all the commotion.

      Extremely correct of course. The subject scene has (?) more than 100 feet of depth, and f/2.8 would be worst choice to capture the depth of the scene.

      Re: weird blurry pictures with d3200

      Hello everyone,

      So, clearly, two positions are facing one another.

      The point here is not to debate which position is right or wrong…! More important,
      is that different opinions will possibly take the member to the right solution.

      By definition, the only winner in a forum is the one that benefits the most from it!
      …and that should be the member! I do not wish to make a point and win it. I don't
      care being right or wrong! I am not even willing to fight. My only gratification is to
      see the OP come back and say: "Problem solved!"

      Wrong opinions, as mine maybe, are also part of the thinking, the elimination process
      that brings to a solution.This is a forum, not an arena or a ring!

      My logic is impeccable. My logic is based on assumptions that may be wrong. So, my
      logic may be impeccably wrong. The only advantage I have is experience… but like
      I said, I'm not even willing to fight.

      The only one that should profit is the member …right or wrong!

      Even negative space may contribute to the success of a great photograph!

      Hello, Kodiak

      I was simply pointing out that all remarks/suggestions to close down the aperture WERE justified and were based on your remark here:

      Indeed, I observed that the shutter speed use was high enough and the aperture
      was wide but to conclude that this is the problem in an unjustified assumption.

      Read more: weird blurry pictures with d3200
      In other words, it IS a justified assumption.

      It's not a competition of who is right or wrong and the viewpoints are not mutually exclusive. Several, including you, have indicated that his focus problem is multi-faceted.

      In terms of your logic being "impeccable", I don't know if you're joking or not, nor am I questioning it. I do believe that anything based on a faulty assumption leads to a faulty conclusion, and hence, invalidates the argument, and the whole point of "logic" is to authenticate the validity of the "argument."

      Re: Pictures blurry and weird

      I'm with Kodiak on this one. I've taken many shots over the years at 2.8 with my 80-200, and I can assure you that, at the distances these shots were taken, something would be sharp if focus was acquired and there's nothing in these images sharp enough to prove focus was ever acquired. They look like images taken in AF-C without accurate focus.

      Re: weird blurry pictures with d3200

      If that isn't primarily a depth of field issue, I'll eat my boots. Is the camera set to release on focus-lock? I'd be curious to know... Because if it is then the shutter won't release until the AF has a lock on *something*.

      Scroll about three-quarters of the way down the page of this user guide to get a quick idea of what the Auto Focus settings are, what they do, and how to change them. Also see this article that explains how to use the Auto Exposure/Focus Lock (AE-L/AF-L) button.

      Re: weird blurry pictures with d3200

      I think you can fix your issue by changing from 3D tracking like Moab said..
      AF-C, with Matrix metering & F/8 and upwards should help the trick...

      provided of course that the focus lock as noted by Horoscope Fish is in place

      3D tracking sounds all cool, but it won't really work all the time
