Having problems with your Nikon D3100 Digital Camera ?

Whenever I take photos in shutter priority mode, all the pictures seem to be UNDEREXPOSED not overexposed like most people say it is. It also says LO where the f-stop number should be. PLEASE HELP!

Answers :

Your shutter speed is too fast. The correct exposure requires a lens aperture larger than physically possible on the lens. That's what the "LO" is telling you. Slow down the shutter speed until the "LO" goes away. Alternatively, increase the ISO sensitivity (or a combination of both).\012\012\012

Just because you can set the shutter speed to whatever you want doesn't mean you can get a properly exposed photo at that shutter speed. There may be too little light (as in your case) or too much light. You have to use a shutter speed appropriate for the subject and the light conditions.

I just bought a Vivitar Vivicam T027 camera. It says to use a SD card. I tried that - does not fit. I tried the SDHC card - does not fit. Please help me by telling me what kind of card this camera does take. The 800 number given in the manual is useless - 45 minutes and then it disconnected without me talking to anyone. I'm at a loss and I have also given this camera to a friend as a gift so I'm embarrassed because I can't get mine to work or hers. Thanks for helping me.
