Why is Nikon D7000 unable to do two RAW shoots per second for a long time?

Do I use the camera or lens switch to change between auto and manual focus?

Why isn't my DSLR focusing accurately on a fast-moving subject?

Use a smaller aperture to get a larger depth of field and give yourself a little more room for error. Even just going from f/3.5 to f/4 at 18mm would probably give you about an extra 10 feet of depth ...

Bad focus. Is it me or my body (D7000)?

The images are obviously front focused. If it happens consistently with more lenses (not just one) then it is the body; if you can't compensate it enough with AF Fine (as it seems) you need to send in ...

Why is the on-camera flash trying to pop up when using a D7000 with a MK930 Speedlite?

Exactly, if you want to shoot in " AUTO " mode then shoot in " PROGRAM" (P) mode. This is the closest you can get to auto, and you can change parameters as well. Biggest perk, you will not have to ...
