Having problems with your Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens ?

Autofocus on Nikon d90 doesn't work well.

\015 I have already had the shutter repaired after only having the camera a few weeks and have been having trouble as described by others with the autofocus. Maybe Nikon stop producing so many cameras and make fewer of them work properly. Even when I remove and replace the lens, which came with this camera, it takes me a good minute to get a shot.\015

Answers :

Remember, autofocus needs a difference in contrast to lock on to a subject. It's hard to focus on a solid color so move your camera slightly to find something better to focus on.

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t
