Having problems with your Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera ?

D300 control panel

\015 Just out of the box, battery charged and SanDisk Extreme III 4 gb card formatted. The control panel continues to display [1.0[k which I understand to be 1000 shots available when the ON/OFF switch is turned OFF. Is this a malfunction? What can I do? Or is it normal?\015

Answers :

No, it is not a malfunction, and it is perfectly normal. It is just a heads-up-display of how many pictures you have left. THere might be a way to turn it off, so consult the user manual, or go to this link.

I have a D300 with a 4gig card. Takes 366 images at 12 megapixels. Using CH mode and taking lots of exposures of a couple of subjects plus single exposures the control panel tells me after a total of 212 exposures I have 250 exposures left. Is this normal? or is there a software problem? John Auckram


Unless I'm mistaken, does the camera take the full 12MP when shooting in CH mode? I don't think so and that would explain why you still have 250 exposures left. ... Digital Cameras
