Having problems with your Nikon D5000 Digital Camera ?

How do I adjust the aperture on the Nikon D5000 DSLR camera?

Answers :

It depends on the exposure mode.

In Program mode (P), turn the command dial and the camera will shift the exposure by changing both the aperture and the shutter speed.

In Aperture-priority mode (A), turn the command dial and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Manual mode (M), hold the aperture button and turn the command dial.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, turn it to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it.
I recognize the problem you are having. I purchased a special book in order to find out how to do it. Check out his website!\015\012http://mansurovs.com/how-to-change-aperture-on-nikon-d3000-and-d5000

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry

No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

Hi I have a Nikon d200 and with a Sigma 50mm Macro AF 2.8. The lens is a few years old. and it's the first time I tride it on the d200. I can't get the autofocus working, is the lens not compatibel withe the camera? or is there some adjustment on the camera I can do. The lens does not have internal focus motor. it's adjusted by a smal screw in the conction of the lens. Any ideas?

Back focus My D300 looked like it was focusing behind the subject. I set up 8 objects on the lawn, each one 3 feet behind the other. I mounted my camera on a tripod, selected a shallow depth of field, and shot each object. I found that at close range, my camera focused fine. The farther away the object, the more the camera focused behind the object. I returned the camera to Nikon for repair under warrantee. They made some adjustments. The focus has definitely improved, but I don't think it is qu

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)

A couple of things - I don't think you mean 500 megapixels (that is a lot!) but I assume you mean you expected a high resolution image. You may have it! The dpi setting is largely irrelevant (for photographers) as it simply relates number of pixels ... Fuji Finepix S5800 Digital Camera

Blurred pictures I started using my new Nikon Coolpix on Christmas Eve and have taken photos for about 2 weeks. More than half of the pictures are very blurry after I transferred them to my computer and enlarged them to view. My daughter also got a Canon Elph on the same day and her photo quality is much much better. I also own a Nikon D5000 and have always been very happy with the quality, thus my choice of a Nikon pocket camera. Have I made a mistake?

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything

It sounds like you may be in a low light mode. Put the camera in record mode, and then press the set button (in the middle of the up down left right keys). You probably want the camera to be in automatic mode (or A). If this doesn't solve the prob ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
