Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Nikon flash photography

\015 How do I set exposure for slow-sync flash with my D-80 and SB-600?I know I have to set slow-sync on the camera and i-TTL on the speedlight, but do I leave the camera in P and let it meter itself, or do I go for aperture priority to cntrol depth of field....am confused.Any help gratefully received.Jeff\015

Answers :

The nice thing about digital is that it essentially costs you nothing but time to experiment with different settings and see what you like best and what works and what doesn't.
\015\012One thing I use a lot is the accessory cord that lets you get a flash off the camera while still having one on the camera. A little more money but giving more flexibility is the Pocket Wizard Plus digital remote control units. I can activate my flash from over 200 feet away (haven't tried it further). I have the D300 and SB800 with bounce card as my basic portable rig for candid shots.
I had help from a guest which was very useful.
\015\012Thanks.

I was somehow roped into shooting a friend's night wedding this weekend, even though my photography "expertise" is entirely limited to shooting in natural light. I am a total amateur (and my friend knows this - I have told her over and over she's taking a big risk). So anyway, I've rented a flash and bracket and am looking for any/all the cram-style tips you can give me for programming the flash (it's a Nikon speedlight SB-800 on a D70) and the camera for best use. Thanks :)


First, you MUST practice with the flash before you shoot the wedding. If at all possible arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony with a friend/model to pose for you so you can practice with the settings until you understand what will and will not work. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

My camera is a year and a couple weeks old so Im not even sure if I have warenty. Does any know how much something like this will cost? and how long it takes to get repaired?


It sounds like your flash capacitor isn't fully charged up and your taking a photo and there isn't enough power charged up, so your photos turn out too dark. Take a photo, wait for a minute or til you see the flash icon inside the viewfinder lit up a ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.

Hi. I have a Nikkon D3000, a Sigma 105mm lens, and a round flash ring. I have the settings as: ISO: 200, Shutter Speed: 1/200, F25 for close teeth photos and F8 for face shots. Now I am a dentist and first time user of this camera got the settings from a dental photography website. The proble is: When I take pictures with the flash ring on they turn up black, without the flash ring on and the camera flash on, the pictures turn out clear buy very dark. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time.
