Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera ?

Digiscope A friend of my is a very keen birdwatcher. He has a Digiscope and would like to take photos using his NIKON COOLPIX 5100. What settings should be use on the camera ?


Answers :

Hey timpo,
\015\012 I would definitely use some kind of remote release since even the smallest amount of camera shake (pressing the shutter button) can cause blurry images in high magnification images. At the type of magnifications usually involved in digiscopeing the depth of field of your images will be greatly reduced and you will need to set the camera to a smaller aperture than usual, which should result in slower shutter speeds. I would definitely have the camera set to manual exposure mode so you can control both the shutter and the aperture although aperture priority should also work well. I would not set the camera to a higher iso since you will lose quality, and since I am assuming you are using a tripod slow shutter speeds should not be an issue. Any movement by the subject will blur the subject if you are using slow shutter speeds so if this becomes an issue you can set the camera to a wider aperture at the loss of depth of field to achieve a faster shutter speed. I hope this helps!

I have a Coolpix Nikon L1 and everything works fine with the camera except when I try to transfer the pictures over to the computer. It used to let me but I would still have to run them through other programs because it never automatically comes up like it used it. I have already tried going through the set-up menu on the camera and did everything it told me to and it still does not work. Any solutions?

I have a Nikon CoolPix 4300 that is about 5 years old. I mostly use it in the Macro mode for close-up photos of the sewing thimbles I sell on eBay. The last two times I've used the camera, I can take only a few pictures (2 or 3) before the camera shuts itself off. It will come back on by itself, after a while, but I have to totally reset it to take only a few pictures, then it shuts off again. I have set the auto shut off to 30 minutes, but that didn't help. I have tried several different batter

Hi, I purchased a Nikon Coolpix P80 digital camera, its a beaut camera to use but I appear to have issues with it. When taking a photo and viewing it at 100% I find the quality of the picture is not clear, its very grainy. Is the issue with myself as I do tend to have alittle camera shake. Is there too much noise is my ISO too high as its set at 200. How do I take a good photo.


I recomend you to use ISO64 for it shoots a good picture than ISO200 above. it is normal for us to shake our hands a little while taking pictures but the cam still can get a sharp image. if you VR is turned off it can produce shots with a shaky resul ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Have Nikon Coolpix 885 dig. camera, bought in 2000, still works OK. I had been transferring the photos to my old computer using "Nikon View" 5 version 5.0.0 software that came with the camera and my Windows XP operating system with no problems. I now have a new computer using Windows 7. This is my question: Will it be OK to install the original "Nikon View" 5 disk with Windows 7 or is there a newer "Nikon View" software to work with Windows 7 and my old Coolpix 885?

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?

When I connect my camera using the USB cable, Nikon Transfer opens as usual, but nothing happens after that. The source is not showing the camera. The camera works fine. I can view and take pictures.

I have a Nikon Coolpix P2 camera that I love. I used to have Picasa 2 software loaded and it automatically detected when I attached the camera to a USB port.

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
