Nikon D7000 Where’s the Beep? Custom Focusing Options

The D7000 is known for being ultra quiet. When I received my camera from the factory, I noticed there was no beep when I focused in on an image. The camera had shipped to me with the focus confirmation beep turned off. Some of you will like having this feature off and some of you, like me, enjoy hearing that little confirmation beep telling us that the lens is in focus. Often I’m moving very quickly, and just hearing a beep that says everything is in focus is reassuring. Here’s how you can turn the beep back on and select a volume.

  1. Menu
  2. Custom Setting Menu
  3. D Shooting/Display
  4. D1 Beep
    1. Select Volume and Pitch
    2. Click OK

Focus Point Wrap—Turn this feature on and you’ll save your thumb from doing a lot of clicking when working from opposite ends of the AF points.

    1. Select On

AF-Assist Illuminator—The D7000 is equipped with an autofocus illuminator. Basically, a light comes on when the camera is trying to focus in the dark. It’s similar to a redeye light but serves a totally different purpose. I am not a fan of this function, but you may like it. I don’t recommend it for low-light portraits because the flashing light bothers some people’s eyes. If you want to turn this function off, either all the time or only for low-light portraits, here is how you do that.

  1. Menu
  2. Custom Setting Menu
  3. A Autofocus
  4. A7 Built in AF-Assist Illuminator
    1. Select Off
    2. Press OK
