Focus beep

edited February 2016 Posted in » Nikon D3300 Forum
My D3300 only seems to focus beep when I'm in auto. When I switch to aperture priority it no longer beeps. Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks in advance.


  • I don't use the beep, but checking it I find that it does not beep when the setting is on AFC. In Auto mode, it's always on Auto Area, Auto everything focus, and it beeps.

    In Aperture priority mode, a number of combinations are possible. If the Focus Mode is AFC, it will not beep, even if the Focus Area mode is set to Auto Area. It will beep in AFS mode, and seems to beep in AFA mode too, although it might not do so when a subject is moving.
