He meant manual focus points. Ie. Selecting the pinpoint place to focus.

Aperture and ISO aren't correlated with camera shake. It's ALL shutter speed, I'd say at least 1/40th. Although, you might need to lower the aperture or bump up the ISO to get that speed.

Manual AF points is different from manual settings. Did you select your AF point yourself? Or when you autofocused, did you let the camera decide where to autofocus?

As for the best aperture/shutter speed, that's an impossible question to answer. It depends on many variables, the least of which would be your environment (how much lighting? Direct/indirect? Harsh enough to throw off metering?) and your lenses (What's the max aperture? Variable max aperture lens? Can you stay wide or do you need to zoom in? VR?). A good analogy would be asking "How much can I overclock my CPU?" without knowing their system configuration.

? i shot it in Manual, and i manually adjust the focus from there. Although i think for the dog pic it was auto-focus without me changing that setting.

Manually focusing is different than manually selecting AF points, which are different than letting the camera select AF points.

Manual focus = you turn your lens to MF and turn the focusing rin to focus.

Manually selecting AF points = you select one of the nine AF points in your viewfinder to autofocus on, and the camera will use only that point to autofocus. So whatever that point is on will be the focusing subject

Letting your camera select AF points = your camera will automatically select which of the AF points to use.

The problem with manually focusing on entry-level bodies, for me anyways, is that the viewfinder is too small and dim to get a good focus. Even with focusing confirmation while manually focusing, it's still not as sharp as autofocusing. For me, I'd need a 100% coverage/100% magnification viewfinder or a split prism to be able to manually focus well.

So you're not using autofocus then? Maybe you should. Also the dog pic doesn't look OOF as much as it just looks like motion blur from too low of a shutter speed to freeze the dogs' movements.

That's what I said in my critique.

OOOOOHhhh i see now...

wasn't aware at all about the nine points of manual AF... gotta look up my D3100 manual, or do you know how it's done on that Nikon?

Nope, but it is possible. It's a standard feature on every DSLR.
