How to Autofocus for Live View Shooting on Nikon D5300 DSLR?
Steps of Autofocus for Live View Shooting on Nikon D5300 DSLR Are Below:
1.You would have to choose the Focus mode and AF-area mode.
When you select the I button, the user needs to make sure that both settings are selected via the control strip that comes on the camera screen. Not all settings are allowed for specific exposure modes. If the Focus mode is set to AF-F, the autofocus system is discovered to perk up, and the focus point starts to be seen.
2. You would have to find the frame in the Live View for autofocus in Nikon D5300 DSLR
If a wide area or a normal area exists, the frame will be a red one. If a face is located, the closest person will be selected by the focus frame, and the bracket will indicate the face of the person you are going to shoot.
3. If your camera doesn’t focus on a person’s face, it will show a red frame like it does for a long-range shot.
In AF-F mode, when the subject is under the camera’s focus, the red frame becomes green, and each time the user resets it, the camera frame changes color.
4.To make sure that you are focusing on your subject press the multi-selected tool which goes up down right or left to give you the perfect frame.
The Face-Priority mode will allow you to use a double-lined yellow focus frame to give you the perfect image of the object you want in the right place by sharing the focus.
You’d have to press ‘OK’ to navigate the focus point to the center of the frame when shooting in Wide Area and Normal Area modes.
5. When using the Subject Tracking AF-Area mode, the user needs to select the OK button to make the focus tracking work.
A person is not a static object and you’re shooting the name move, and if this happens, when they enter the scene again, you need to stop tracking and then reframe your subject. To make it happen, press the OK button. To stop the tracking, press the ok button for the first time, then press it again to resume your tracking after you have correctly reframed the image.
6.When shooting in AF-S Focus mode if you have to start autofocusing then you need to press the shutter halfway down and then wait for the focus frame to turn to Green to indicate that you have successfully managed to change the autofocus option.
How the frame appears depends on the mode of the AF-Area. You will also find that the results will be different in different focus modes.
If you do not have to disable the beep in your settings and the focus is locked, you will hear a little beep sound in the AF-S, telling you to keep the shutter button pressed halfway. In the Shoot/Display section of the Custom Setting menu, you can find the option to disable the beep.
If you have chosen the AF-F, you will find that the focus will be altered to suit the subject’s movements. If the focus is lost when the center becomes green and stops blinking, you will find that the focus frame turns to red or even yellow or white if your camera has successfully identified your subject. Keep the shutter button pressed halfway if you want to ensure your focus is a lock.
7.To double-check on the focus, you need to press the zoom button to magnify the image that you are going to capture.
You will get a chance to look closely at your subject with each press, and in the lower right corner of the screen a small thumbnail will appear. It will have a highlight box in yellow that will indicate which part of the image you are viewing. Each article gives you a closer look at the topic. Press the zoom out button to go back to the standard image size, and now you can autofocus on your Nikon D5300 DSLRR for live view shooting.
