    Just tried to focus trap on my nikon D80 it works a treat.
    Thank you for that advice.

    Can you do a video on bracketing. Just can't seem to get me head round it.

    Do you know if this is possible on the Nikon D610? I regularly use back-button auto focus, but I've not been able to either
    a) only capture when something is in focus, or
    b) use an actual trap.

    My autofocus menu doesn't seem to have an AF-activation item in a4, so I'm not sure that it's possible on my model.

    Hi Matt,
    I've tried it on my D7100... and I think it doesn't work on that one. Can you tell me I'm wrong?
