    Re: Bbf & u1

    I can't duplicate this on my d7200. It works as expected. Any chance you overlooked something? U's should end when switching back to regular modes. Sometimes after leaving U, the focus mode or metering mode icon lingers on the top lcd, but as soon as I hit the shutter button it updates to whatever it should be. If you are not in U mode and you can't undo bbf, something sounds wrong.

    edit: I looked through the d750 manual. Nothing that looks curious. You changed F4, right? And you changed it after leaving U mode? If you change it before leaving U, it just becomes a temporary change to the U setting. It will be lost when you switch back to A mode.
    The d7200 has a weird menu item, A4, for autofocus activation that the d7100 and other models do not have. It allows for both the shutter button and bb to both control focus if you are set for bbf. It can cause unexpected results, but I don't see anything like that on the d750.

    Before I saved them to U1 and U2, I had to set BBF while I was in Aperture Priority. That's what I can't seem to reset for some reason. They both saved to U1 and U2 correctly though. But I need to revert to my original setting while in Aperture Priority. Although I set the AE-L/AF-L button to something else, it is still working as BBF.

    I'm too tired to work with it tonight. Hopefully over the weekend I can tackle my D7100 and see how that one goes. Thanks, Nick!

    I went back through this today but am not sure why I was able to change it now. It's fixed. I went to a Autofocus then went to g3 Assign AE-L/AF-Lock button which is the same as F4. This time the change was able to be made. And U1 & U2 work as programmed with BBF so now I'm going to try setting my D610 and D7100 the same way.

    Thanks for your help, Nick!

    I just set both my D610 and D7100 the same way without any trouble at all. My D750 has what I think is a software glitch. A year or so ago when I turned on my camera, I had forgotten to turn the VR off on the lens. The very first time I pressed the shutter, the mirror locked up and ERR showed in the top display. From then on, almost every first shot of the day would cause the same reaction. Now when I turn off the body, I make sure the top display is in standby. It's almost stopped the ERR issue. So this problem with not being able to reset the AE/AL button yesterday just might have been another software glitch. Seems to be fine now.

    Unfortunately Nikon says they can't remove the software and reinstall it so I simply work with its issues. Usually my D750 works flawlessly, and I love the camera.
