Having problems with your Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm + 55-200mm lens ?

When I take pictures with my D60 on Manual the optimal exposure seems to be lying to me. In both situations dark and light everything is much much darker than it should be at optimal exposure. I want to take pictures on Manual but am discouraged...


Answers :

Check the white balance. Set it to the corresponding lighting conditions and try the white card setting. It should be the last option on the white balance menu. To use it, snap a picture of a white piece of paper and save it. Just experiment with different settings till you get good results. Best of luck!

I have a Canon Power Shot SD990 digital camera. It takes great pictures except when I want to take a close up picture of an item I want to put on Ebay. I have read my manual, but can't seem to get the blur out of the pictures. They are okay, but not crisp like other pictures of subjects.

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??


The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong? I'm out of town and I forgot my camera manual; I think I remember something in there about troubleshooting this parti

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

My panasonic Lumix camera DMC-ZS3 dropped and the zoom stopped working. Lens will go out only a drop, not enough to take pictures, and it says: "system error: zoom." Playback only is OK.

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I was at the baech, taking pictures of all the wavee formations, and all of a suddon the zoom stoped working. It has been almost a year now, and the zoom STILL doesn't work.

I just got a second hand bought Kodak EasyShare C913 camera. After I got it I took only 7 pictures, after that it wouldn't let me take any others because it would say 'internal memory is full.'

I don't know much on cameras I just want to use it for pictures and then to upload them onto my computer. Please he

My Sony Alpha 200 digital camera takes lovely pictures, but as I am a beginner and don't really know much about apertures and shutter speeds and how complex they are, I'm having great difficulty in getting it to focus properly in the manual setting. All other settings are fine, but the image in my viewfinder is very blurry when I look through before taking the shot.

Hi, my Nikon D200 has a blank screen. If I go to the menu, it shows the menu just fine, but if I want to take a picture it is black.
