Having problems with your Nikon D5000 Digital Camera with 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses ?

I just bought a nikon d5000 and when i turn the settings to manual all of my photos are black. Do i need to change something else or could there be something wrong with my camera?

Answers :

When you set the exposure mode to Manual, you then have to set the shutter speed and aperture yourself. That's the whole point of the manual setting: the camera does none of the work for you.

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.

Hey man. Im not sure how new you are but basically i think your problem is you need to decrease the shutter speed to around 1/200-1/250 of a second and increase the apeture to around f10/12 and see if that works. If your operating at a high shutter s ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black. We tried the DISP button and that does not work in this case. Everything else seems to be ok. We can see the other photos we have taken. Do you have any idea what is wrong with the camera or where we can take it to have it looked at or fixed? Brian Anderson

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....

Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it

Trouble Connecting I went to upload my pictures onto my MacBook and the camera won't connect. It had been working fine before and I hadn't changed anything. I tried taking out batteries and memory card, switching USB ports, and making sure the camera was set on USB and not the disk setting. What else can I try?I feel like I had this problem before and maybe it had something to do with Rosetta on Macs...could that be it? But I don't know how/where/what to do for that.Thank you,Tia

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera

Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now say ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Hello. I bought my Powershot SX1 IS in April 2010, and have never felt I could get good photos with it. The 'noise' seems bad, when I playback and zoom in just one notch, definately worse, the more I zoom. The color is often poor, and the focus on close-ups is not sharp. Would you say this is the best this camera can do, or would you say there is something wrong with this particular one. (I always have it set at highest resolution , often 100 ISO, try the set of three exposures to get diffe
