my dl2 doesn't allow me to shoot when it thinks that subject is out of focus. i don't really mind that excep when I set my lens to hyperfocal distance on the scale, it should let everything be in focus in landscape shooting but camere didn't want to fire. I trird to shoot couple out of focus pictures (to make noise profile for neatimage) but it didn't let me. is there anything I can do to shoot no matter what camera think about focus??

I've found answer to my own question. I just have to switch camera to manual focus. apeerantly when using manual focus lenses if you have camera switched to AF it won't let you shoot when out of focus. there's nothing about it in camera manual.



sorry for causing confusion

Gfurm, don't worry I am still getting caught out on that because I flick between manual and auto focus lenses all the time...:blah:

No confusion caused - not everyone knows that. I did the same thing, wondering what was wrong with the camera, and havedone that more than once! It's a good point to bring up, especially for others around here that are new to the camera.
