D50 autofocus I can't get the menu to choose the autofocus or the autofocus area on the menu the cursor witl highlight everything else but the autofocus areas they are just skipped over and also don't light up as the rest of the choices do on the menu , is there anything that i need to turn on ?
I'm not sure I understand the problem, but I'll give it a try anyway - on the D50 you can choose the point of focus (1 out of 5 spots). If you're in 'all automatic' (A) mode, the point of focus is selected automatically by the camera. In other modes, ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera

I own a Nikon D50 and the 55-200 lens will not autofocus (lens continually extends then retracts but never locks into focus). Ive read that depressing the lens release button whilst holding the lens in place and swivelling the lens a couple of times sometimes works (cleans muck off the sensors). I tried this but to no avail. Any halp would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
Why don't you just clean the sensors properly? Remove the lens and clean the contacts on both the camera body and the lens with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. There's a 50-50 chance something else is causing your problem but try ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months and the problem just began. If I want to focus on anything in the left to center of the field of vision, I cannot do it. However, the lens focuses manually very well. Why won't my camera focus on other points than the far right one?
I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:**************************Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which onl ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Is there such a thing as a suggested setting for the Canon D50 that shows exactly what are the proper setting for the Canon D50 to get high quality images? I real

Autofocus malfunction Hello, I have a Sony A200 SLR, that when you just turn it on and it checks the autofocus function, you can hear the noise of the motor trying to move the lens about 2 secs, but then it stops, and when trying to use it in autofocus, it does not work. what could be the possible solutions for it? I appreciate your help, and i ask you, since i read a post before to a guy from Iraq having a similar problem

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand
