lock? which lock? uh oh. :(


On the Directional pad there is a little switch, sometimes I accidentally smack it and it LOCKS, a quick flip the other direction and you are unlocked - this allows you to move the AF box around. I have panicked a few times when my AF has gotten locked before realizing it is usually just that and I frantically removed batteries and powered down for no good reason :P

You are correct! AND a GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D The lock switch that is next to the directional pad was set to "L" I don't know how it got set to lock but it surely was.

I am not much of a genius... I ended up taking an array of pictures at Disney of the "Frozen" parade with the AF point stuck in one spot... because even after removing the grip, the batteries, and resetting (mid-parade mind you) I still couldn't get the AF point to move from the off-center position I had originally had it at...

Suffice to say I felt completely humbled as well while on the bus ride back to the hotel I started randomly moving modes when I noticed the switch.... boy was I feeling sheepish! :)

BTW great shots and shares!

It's been a while. Don't really visit these forums too often these days.

I've used the D750 on a good amount of weddings now and a few vacations and I generally like it very much. Just thought I would mention a few pet-peeves. My apologies if these were already mentioned.

1) Image preview often times seems to take forever. Sometime it's close to instantaneous. But sometimes it take a good 3-5 seconds for the preview to show up. Quite annoying!

2) The Rubber View Finder cover comes off easily. I lost one. Bought 2 more. Put on a brand new one before my last wedding. Before the day was over, the new one was gone. I've never had this happen before on any of my previous cameras, Nikon or Canon!

3) Buttons, buttons, buttons. At the last wedding, apparently I somehow bumped the Bracket button. I was shooting and I noticed the shutter speed kept on changing on me. I was baffled! Then I finally noticed I was in Bracket mode. It's a good thing I had my D810 with me as well. LOL.

4) Can't change the ISO right after a shot is taken and the image is in preview mode. This is also quite annoying. Sometimes I'm working quickly, changing settings quickly. I take a shot. Then adjust the ISO...but wait...I can't...because the camera is working on the preview. So I press the AF-On button to close the preview, then change the ISO. Drives me insane!!!

5) Yeah...the shutter is effing loud. MUCH louder than my D810 in silent mode.

6) Getting some random "ERR" messages here and there. Turn the camera off then back on and it's gone. This rarely happens, but it happens.

Despite these, I really like the camera. Top-notch IQ. Very good AF. More portable form factor. Love the articulating screen.

Anyways, here are some photos!

Anyone else's eyecup peice fall off very easily?
None of my Canon's did that... this one pops off all the time.
I bought a bunch of cheap Chinese ones because I'm sure I will lose many more...

Mine has only come off once. That was because of me putting the camera into my bag at an odd angle, and I dragged the cup directly on the lining of the case.

It took a while for mine to come off the first time. I bought 2 more. Put a new one on and the same day at a wedding it was gone.
So yeah...seems like once it comes off, it's easier for subsequent ones to come off. Really annoying!
