Turn off focus assist beam on Nikon

\015 Hi! How do i turn off the focus assist beam on the Nikon D90? I thought it was my red eye reduction light that was going off when i went to take a photo, but the red eye icon is not on my camera display (therefore it's not ON). I don't need this beam of light as i am using studio strobes. THanks!!!\015

Answers :

Custom Setting Menu A, autofocus, setting A3 "Built-in AF-assist illuminator".

174 in my D90 manual.
"Choose whether the built-in AF-assist illuminator lights to assist the focus operation when lighting is poor"
How can we turn it off permanently??? I turned it off from the Setting as said above but still when I use it inside my home .. the annoying Beam still come when i press the button half.. I am just fed up with it.
I am using D90 with 50mm 1.8D lens.. same AF beam problem with Zoom lens also (70-300 VR)

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S220 on, it makes a funny sound and the lens tries to focus. It zooms in, and out, trying to focus but stays blurry. It then says 'lens error' and turns off. I have always kept it in a protective case, and have never dropped it. What has happened?


From what you said, it shouldn't be a lens problem, but even dust, lint, and sand can cause problems. The focusing ring works with an electromagnetic field, and that attracts particles. You can try to spray compressed air into the lens assembly t ... Digital Cameras

We bought our Nikon Coolpix 8100 just before Halloween. I was in the middle of taking a picture today - my finger was halfway down on the button to focus it - and the camera went black. The lens is still out and open, as if it was turned on. Pushing the power button doesn't do anything. I plugged it into the charger - the green light blinks periodically. I am unable to get the camera to turn on or off either while it is plugged in or after I unplug it.


What it might need is to remove the power source (battery) for a few seconds 20-30. The camera is a fairly new model so it should also be under warranty. If the camera doesn't begin to operated properly after reinstalling the battery you might want t ... Digital Cameras

My Nikon S210 is not focusing correctly. It's just recently started to act in this manner. I had a 'lens error' screen this summer after getting some sand in the lens from my pocket and I beat that one by 100's of 'on' then 'off' attempts and removing the battery when it wouldn't turn off. Literally a couple hundred times over the course of a week and it finally came around and started operating correctly. I've taken maybe 50 pictures since then and kept the camera in it's case when in my pock
