Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

I could not found white balance in shooting mood


Answers :

You can set the white balance only in one of the P, S, A, and M modes. In the point&shoot modes the camera will always automatically set the white balance (and just about everything else).
In one of the PSAM modes you can set the white balance in the Shooting menu. Full details are in the "White Balance (P, S, A, and M Modes)" section of the manual (page 70 in my copy).

I HAVE A GR2 DIGITAL CAMERA. I usually shoot in manual mode and and set white balance manually using a digital callabration target. Yesterday afternoon, after shooting most of theday without problems, my images started appearing completely washed out with an orange cast. This cast also was all over my calibration target image. The image was unclear with stripes running horizontally across my display. This problem is present in all modes. Itried everything I could think of to resolve the matter


I doubt that formatting the card will do anything but, if you choose to do that, download any pics first since formatting will completely erase the card. Have you tried going back to "Auto WB" to see if your camera works properly that way? How about ... Ricoh GR Digital Camera

Magenta cast For many months now I have been shooting products and artwork with a Canon 10D and 2 white lighting strobes with larg silver lined soft boxes.The problem I'm having is with a magenta color cast over the entire picture especially if I shoot red subject material.I have tried vast changes in parameters and white balance and nothing I do with camera settings seems to help, I must always resort to post processing in PHOTOSHOP CS. Could this be a 10D issue or ME?

Nikon d200 My pictures are coming out with red or yellow in it and I do the white balance with an expo disc. Did I do something wrong in the menu settings? I am shooting portraits with continuous lighting. What setting should I have my camera on?

Hello jenmardi,First, the fstop and shutter speed question ... For a lens of 70 mm I would use the manual with shutter speed at least 1/250 or 1/500, then the fstop I would set at 2.8 or just under this, no more than 4. You need as much l ... Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

Formatting on the computer or in the camera erases the card. That is not what you want. Use a separate card reader to download the pics (if they still exist) to your computer. If that's successful, then format the card in the camera (not the computer ... Fuji FinePix S6000fd Digital Camera

CF error I own a Canon 400D. It worked perfectly until today. I inserted the cf card, and turned on the camera. It took a couple of seconds to light up, and I got a message that the cf card was faulty and needs to be replaced. I used another one...it said the same thing. I tried reformatting. It gave me an err99 and then said that "shooting is not possible" I formatted the card on the computer...no luck. The pins are in place, I checked.

Canon xt When I try to shoot sports at night under lights I am having difficulty getting my camera in maunal mode without having bulb mode as well. How do I turn bulb off? I am setting my ISO at 1600 and pushing my f-stop as low as I can go, am I doing something wrong? It worked once for a recent football game but again last night shooting soccer could not get the bulb setting to turn off.


First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not con ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Slower shutter speeds is the key. 1,2,4, or 8 seconds type exposures, longer even. With that in mind, you'll need a good tripod to keep the camera steady. Whats nice with the digital format is that you can see your results and adjust s ... Digital Cameras

Resolution olympus d-560 ...when i set the resolution to sq1:1024x768 (76 frames) press "OK" and turn the camera off it resets back to hq:2048x1536 (20 frames), it keeps doing this even if i shoot some pictures and then turn it off. could it be the memory card ? the batteries are new and everything else works fine, the camera is about 3 years old.

No, it resets itself because it is an older camera.Most older cameras will, once turned off, return to their original settings. So, if you want it to be 76 frames, you will have to do that each time you turn on your camera. ... Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

Colour On recent photographs there's a distinct green tinge, particularly noticeable on outdoor shots. I can correct this in an editor, usually by reducing the green a little and increasing the blue level. The green tinge seems to be consistent, not just occasional photos. I can't find any obvious way of dealing with this in the camera manual, unless the white balance can be used to remedy it. I notice there's a footnote: 'The colour tones may vary somewhat depending on the shooting condition

White balance I have an ongoing problem with all my images having a stronge red / yellow color cast to them. It does not matter if I'm in the daylight or shooting under flouresent lights. When I use my flash the area directly in front of the flash is usually ok, but where the flash falls off, the immediate area has that color cast to it. Example: If I take a picture of the front fender, of a vehicle from six feet away, the fender is usually ok but the chrome wheel, tire and pavement have the red
