The screen went dark while the image was made. When it came back up, the image was noticeably darker and showed a wider DoF. It looked as if the lens remained at f/16 after the exposure
When you take a picture (also in liveview mode ) , the camera shows you the result for a few secs on the LCD or until you depress the shutter (partly) again, unless you switched this of offcourse..
So quetion : are you sure you where not watching the resulting picture on your LCD ?
- If you only have one chance to take a macro shot, there is no "real" DoF preview. You'll need to rely on judgement and experience.
Does the D5100 not have a DOF check button ?
I do not own a D5100, so i cannot check that..
