Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Nikon D50 DSLR camera. I am on vacation

\015 I have a Nikon D50 DSLR camera. I do not have the manual to hand. The shutter will not fire, showing R12 in the display. I have tried changing the battery, the SD card and taken off the lens and refitted. No joy except that it does work in child mode. Anybody have any advice?Mike\015

Answers :

R12 is not an error message, it is a normal message, in fact telling you that the camera has a 12 photo bufffer that stores the pictures as they are written to the memory card.\015\012What is most likely happening is that the camera is not able to write to the SD card. \015\012Are you using a genuine, non counterfeit memory card? There are a lot of them about,- especially from vendors on the internet selling them for 'too good to be true' prices.

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry


No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras
