Hi Annette,

\015\012The Nikon D90 will take pictures with many older lenses, however there are some problems with using these lenses. Most of the time, they will not auto focus and many depending on type lens may not work in any mode other than "M" (manual). No P, A, S, AUTO or any of the "Scene" modes.

\015\012Set to "M" (manual)
\015\012
\015\012You will have to set the exposure values (aperture & exposure time) and focus manually. Ken Rockwell has compiled a list of lenses that may help you learn more about using older lenses with your D90.

I have Bonica 5.0 Mega Pixel Digital Camera (the one that has the waterproof glove, and fits inside the Snapper XP underwater case). Problem: I have been unable to find any SD memory card compatible with this camera. Have tried PNY 4 GB--no good. Tried PNY 2GB--no good. Trying PNY 1 GB.. and it just keeps "formating".

Try formatting the card inside the camera, that should work.If\015\012after formatting from camera menu the camera still does not read the\015\012card, then test the camera with a different SD card, a defective card\015\012can still be re ... Digital Cameras

Histograms still elude me, as what I often perceive as a good histogram doesn't always result in good exposures on the computer


Hi Joseph.\015\012\015\012If the histogram looks OK (mind you that takes quite a bit of experience to judge properly) then your picture should be OK. If not, it may well be the calibration of your monitor that is the problem. \015\012\0 ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I receive the same "errr" message. The photo shop said it was a bad contact, they cleaned them with an eraser and made sure there was good contact. Problem was slightly better, but still exists. I have to remove the battery to clear the problem, turning it off and back on does no good. You can actually feel the lense move ever so slightly. Camera has gone back to Nikon for a repair. Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.

FinePix 2300 I am wondering how good the Macro is on this model. My father-in-law received the 2300 for Fathers Day and he wants to be able to take close up photos of jewelry and rocks with good resolution. The jewelry is any where from Penny size to necklace size and the rocks range in size, but the small ones is what I am concerned about. Any suggestions what model might be better for this type of work if the 2300 will not work would be much appreciated.

I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark.
