How Manual Focus when Batch Scanning on Nikon 5000?

  1. Hello,
    On the Nikon 5000, I know that one can manually focus to a particular point on a single frame: ie, Hold down Ctrl, click on tiny checkerboard icon, and then (while continuing hold down Ctrl) clicking the area on negative/transparency where one wishes the scanner to calibrate the focus distance.
    But what's the procedure when one wishes to do manually focus multiple frames during a batch scan?...
    For example, in the dialogue box, does one deselect autofocus? (see photo) after manually selecting the focus spot for each frame? In this case, will the program remember each manual focus point?
  2. Try it and see. I doubt it will prompt you to focus. I think it will just leave the focus as is for each pic. I think you'd be better off enabling AF.
