Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

Nikon D50 reads [-E-] in window not viewfinder and won't shoot.


Answers :

This is the error code for having a lens with manual or auto aperature adjustment in manual mode with the camera in anything other than "M". You need to put the lens in the max aperature (usually it's red) and then move the small red switch to the red dot. I don't think anything else will give you this error.

Nikon D200 I can't seem to import pictures on to my pc. I shoot in RAW. I have Picture Project loaded which came with the camera. I also have Adobe Elements which normally imports my pictures.

Nikon D50 I have been reading through Fixya to try and find a similar problem. I have a Nikon D50 and have been using it with no problems for over a year. However, now when I try to take photos in AF, nothing happens. It locks up. So, I have to try to take photos in manual. Some come out OK and others not. Very frustrating as I missed lots of xmas pics. When I hit the AF-L button, it seems to work in AF mode. Any suggestions?? [email protected]

Nikon coolpix S51 camera with 2GB Ocz card. Card works fine in the camera and PC can read fine from the camera thru USB connection. But when I put the card in card reader Windows XP sees the card but says that it is not formatted and asks if I want to format it now. Nikon transfer does not see the card either.

"busy" Error Yet another Canon 20D question. I have been shooting both film and digital at weddings for the last two weeks. I have been very impressed with the 20D (I shot Nikon for 22 years). However, I have had my share of camera errors on the 20D. Lately, it shuts down in the middle of shooting and the LCD panel reads "busy." The busy error does not go away when turning off the camera. At first I assumed that the buffer was maxed, but I'm only shooting in single shot mode. Eventually, after m

Viewfinder I just got my *ist DS Monday, and this is my first DSLR. I have a general question, which I hope you guys can help me with. The image framing from the viewfinder is significantly different from the finished photo. The finished product always has a wider angle of view from what I am seeing while framing the shot. At the widest setting, there isn't much difference. At full zoom with an attached Nikon 6t, the object I am shooting is large in the view finder, but it appears half sized


Viewfinder magnification has nothing to do with this. \015\012It's a framing accuracy, viewfinder coverage issue. \015\012\015\012\015\012Viewfinder magnification has to do with how large the focusing/framing field appears, optically, to your eye. Pe ... Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera
