    Hello everyone, i'm having this issue with my D750


    I'm in AF S- S and my focus point will move left when i press the shutter release button half way.
    I'm not looking to lock my focus point using the L button

    I just want to choose my focus point with the wee pad (left right, up down) and the camera to try to focus on that point when i press the shutter release half way rather than look for another focus point.


    Any ideas i i fix this?

    I did select no-wrap in the autofocus menu.
    It does the same in AF C .

    The focus point will just move left when i push the shutter release button half way

    Which eye do you put to the viewfinder?
    If you use your left eye your nose may be hitting the multi selector on the rear of the camera.

    If not, send the camera in to be repaired.

    i know my nose hits those darn thing and moves my focus point.

    i would probably contact nikon customer service and see what they say, if its not your nose it sounds like something is wrong somewhere

    That is really odd. Try doing the two button reset and see if that does anything.

    I was just shooting some soccer and my focus point was jumping around such as you mentioned.

    In the Viewfinder just watching the Single focus point, you think are you in Single Focus Point. But Pressing the Focus Mode button proved otherwise.

    It was in 3D tracking mode, which was doing what it was supposed to. So I went back to Single mode which is what I prefer.


    maybe double check your settings.

    Except AF-S doesn't have a 3D tracking mode.....

    The only thing I can think of that's supposed to move the focus point in AF-S is the cursor pad.

    When it moves, does it move just one point over, or does it keep moving while you hold the shutter half-press? (I'm not sure why that matters, because it's not supposed to do either one, actually..... :) )

    Hi everyone!
    I know this tread is three years old but i've the same problem with my new D750. After two weeks of work, comes the problem. Every half-pressure of shutter button (in AFS-S mode) the little square move on left. Only on left... Ever on left...
    No way to Fix it...

    I hit mine with my nose/check all the damn time.

    My left eye is my dominate eye so that makes it odd -- I have issues shooting rifles too.
