Takes old timers a little longer,

Got it from here,

http://www.lightroom...ointsplugin.com

Took my a while to get it up and running,

As always, if all else fails, read the instructions!  :)

Here is an example,

Works pretty good. I will need to play with it a bit more.  I like that it shows the DOF field lengths. Thanks for the heads up!


Thanks, Dennis.

Just found out one thing that the plugin doesn't handle well: Pictures taken using the "group" autofocus mode.

OK, will try a test of the same thing today and see what happens,

They do have a link for feedback, as this is new, and free, we are also part of the research

i've found their replies prompt and helpful

Hi there, just been doing some tests on my old D700, tried all focus options, I guess some maybe named differently than the D810?

FWIW tried,

Single point AF,

Dynamic Area AF, and 

Auto Area AF 

All worked OK

YMMV with the D810

I don't have group AF on the D700,

I also have downloaded the D810 just in case I need it in the near future,  :) In particular, next month! Maybe?

Noticed the AF options, which include group AF,

I will pass that info on

Uhm - you "downloaded" the D810? :blink:

 

I've also sent a mail to the developer about the group AF problem - if it really is a problem and not me doing something wrong.

Well, wish I could,

I actually downloaded the D810 user manual,

Now have all my manuals in iBooks, works a treat, easy to use and easy to read on a 27" screen for this old timer!

Ah. You had me worried for a second - I thought I'd spent thousands of $$$ for something that I could've gotten for free ;-) But who knows - maybe somewhen in the future if you buy a camera you'll pay the license and then print the device at home on your 3d printer...

Well, its sort of here already,

You can now design your iPhone cover, with your name and a selection of materials from hard plastic to soft then get it printed on a 3D printer cheaper than a retail option

As a beginner, I wouldn't know where to start unfortunately, leave that to the younger brains
