Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

How do I set it up on my Nikon D60 to use this remote?

Answers :

The English manual (Spanish is also available) for your D60 is available free od charge from Nikon below:


The shutter on the D60 can be released by self timer or remote (and of course by the normal shutter button). You're interested in releasing the shutter via IR Remote. An explanation of the shutter release Modes are contained on a single page (Pg. 54) of the manual and should be reviewed before going to the next page. The use of the IR Remote Release Mode is detailed here. Briefly, it states:

"Highlight Release mode in the Quick settings display and select one of the following release modes..." <table of choices & graphics>

You could select either Self Timer (10 seconds), Delayed Remote (2 seconds) or Quick Response Remote, but you're interested in one of the last two methods. The shortcut "Self Timer / Fn" button mentioned is on the camera body - between the lens and directly in front of the "D60" badge.

I hope this helps!
I assume you're referring to the ML-L3 infrared remote?

Select Release Mode from the Quick settings display. Select Quick-response remote. This will make the camera take a picture when you press the button on the remote. Well, almost. The same focusing and exposure metering delays occur as if you'd pressed the shutter release button.

You can also use the Delayed remote mode for group pictures. This gives you two seconds to hide your hand behind your back before the camera takes the picture.

By default the D60 will time out after one minute if you don't press the button on the remote. Custom Setting #17 allows you to set a longer interval.

What settings should I use for my Nikon d60 with a 70-300mm lens to take picures of a night time football game? When the sun goes down, my camera slows and the pictures get blurry.

Set the ISO as high as it will go and the aperture as low as possible. That is as good as it gets without investing a lot of money in pro cameras and lenses that are needed to shoot action in low light. I have a D300 and a 70-200mm f2.8 lens that tog ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

Exposure problem Hi,i'm using EOS 1dMK2 for 5 months now & i've noticed the same problem i've had using D60,1D wich is when i set the camera to top ISO speed & high speed continous shooting almost every second shot is underexposed for 1 stop, stangely this only happens indoor under tungsten or flourescent light.I've also tried to:set custom white ballance,shoot raw ,change lenses,set manual exposure & aperture. Has anyone else noticed this ? P.S. Parameters for both pictures are 1/250sec, f4 ,

... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm + 55-200mm lens

I'm using a Nikon D3100 with a 55-200mm lens, and I'm trying to set my aperture around 1.8 to shoot bokeh, but it won't let me set it lower then 4. I had a 18-55mm lens on earlier, and it wouldn't let me set it lower then 5. My ISO is at 100. Any idea how to set it lower?

You can't set the aperture any lower than the maximum aperture of the lens. This is engraved on the lens. It may say something like f4-6.3 or something similar meaning that f4 is the largest opening of that particular lens. If you find a 55-200mm len ... Nikon D3000 Digital Camera

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.

It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

My Nikon D60 keeps freezing up. Sometimes when I go to take the picture it works fine and other times, it won't take the picture but if I hold down the button it will eventually take after a few seconds.
