Slow Shutter Speed on Nikon D90

\015 Shutter speed decreased on my Nikon D90; continuous frame rate on high setting is now more like 0.5 fps as opposed to its 4.5 fps out of the box. \302\240Shutter also releases very slowly in normal shooting mode. \302\240Installed new card and empty, freshly formatted SD card, and made sure long exposure noise reduction was off. \302\240Ran out of ideas . . . any other fixes out there?\015\012I have had my D90 for less than thirty days, ordered it from Dell website.\015

I suggest that you try a system reset for your camera and then complete the following adjustments to see if your camera will respond like it did originally.

\015\012Nikon D90 green reset dots. Press at the same time to reset.
\015\012Nikon has an easy reset feature. I use it every time I pick up a D90.
\015\012My standard operating setting is only a few clicks different from the reset defaults.
\015\012I reset everything every time I use my camera, much as a pilot uses a checklist before every flight to prevent any switches from being in the wrong position. When I don't check first, I often have left my D90 in some screwy mode, like 2,500K WB and ISO 3,200, from shooting in the dark the night before.
\015\012My checklist is therefore Reset, Program, Basic, Medium, and A3. Allow me to explain:
\015\0121.) Reset: Hold down the +/- and AF buttons (next to the green dots) for a few seconds, and the D90 comes out of whatever crazy mode it was in and returns to sanity. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.
\015\012Reset leaves the detailed menu tweaks alone and resets only the big dumb things I might have changed overnight.
\015\012Once Reset, I change these next:
\015\0122.) Program: Spin the top left exposure mode dial to P, program auto exposure.
\015\0123.) Hold QUAL and spin the rear dial until you see BASIC, and spin the front dial until you see [M]. You'll always see these on the small top LCD, and if you first tap INFO, you can see it more clearly on the huge rear LCD. (Feel free to use other settings if you have a good reason.)
\015\0124.) Hold the WB button and spin the front dial three clicks to A3. This gives warmer (more orange) photos that I prefer.

\015\012Good luck and happy shooting! I have a D80 and would love to get my hands on the new D90. Make sure you also buy a quality filter for your lens UV0. The quality of the lens is just as important as the body it's attached to.

Hi. I am on vacation in the Indian Ocean islands at this moment with a brand new Nikon D90 + 18-105 lens. Was taking photos this morning.

Also, the Lv button no longer works. When I press it, the camera is unable to switch from viewfinder to LCD l

How can i slow the shutter speed on my Nikon Coolpix L100


Technically you cant, the l100 is an all automatic camera, meaning you cant manually set the ISO, aperture, or shutter speed... a good way to slow the shutterspeed would be to autofocus on something similar but darker, then keep that focus for the or ... Nikon COOLPIX L100 Digital Camera

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

My Nikon D90 2 button reset won't work. Is there anyway to fix this, or a different way to reset aperture, shutter speed settings?

Shutter speed on the auto mode of my s1000 camera seems slow. how can it be increased in the auto mode? This is a Fuji camera and by the time I press the shutter button subjects have moved. I have set the camera back to the original factory settings and I can adjust the shutter speed in the manual position but in auto it seems really slow.


You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus before you press the rest of the way. This eliminates "shutter lag". ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual
