Got my Nikon d90 for 3 months now,but encountering error problem with my Nikon D90 w/ 18 105 vr lens.sometimes when i'm ready to shot it appears on the Top LCD,error F--,..Pls. help guys...Thanks

Answers :

This is a common problem with this camera/lens conbo. I "solved" it by removing the lens, then reinstalling it - but hold the lens release button down, and rotate the lens a nuber of times (in the camera body) before releasing the button. It appears that the issue is poor electrical contact between the lens and camera body. If there is a poor contact, the camera will not know if thereis a focus and will lock the shutter release. With this poos contact, the camera will only fucntion in manual mode

I have a new (Dec., 2009) D90. This morning I discovered that I had an "Err" message and a "CHA" message. Both were on the LCD panel on the top of the camera. I was not able to turn the camera off, and the only way to turn it off was to take out the battery. Upon reinserting the battery, everything appeared normal, but after taking one shot the problem reappeared. The interesting thing was that I took the camera body to a Nikon certified shop in New York, and they tried it with a different lens,

The Nikon user manual says on Page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and to clear it, you must release the shutter. \012\012 I have found on my D-90 that I can usually release the shutter by turning the camera off and ba ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

Viewfinder I just got my *ist DS Monday, and this is my first DSLR. I have a general question, which I hope you guys can help me with. The image framing from the viewfinder is significantly different from the finished photo. The finished product always has a wider angle of view from what I am seeing while framing the shot. At the widest setting, there isn't much difference. At full zoom with an attached Nikon 6t, the object I am shooting is large in the view finder, but it appears half sized

Viewfinder magnification has nothing to do with this. \015\012It's a framing accuracy, viewfinder coverage issue. \015\012\015\012\015\012Viewfinder magnification has to do with how large the focusing/framing field appears, optically, to your eye. Pe ... Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D90 with a new Extreme III memory card. I can out in bright sun and often it won't click even though it has focused. It gives me a flashing F--- saying that I don't have a lense attached but I have a Tamron 18-270 on. It also gives me a r17 or21 reading in the ISO/ picture count box. If I turn the camera off, take out the battery, or zoom in and out then sometimes it will take one picture and then stall again. I am loosing some great shots. Help.

Night shots Can someone tell me what My camera should be set on to take night shots. I have tried and tried to figure it out and cant. They do not come out they end up being very dark and usually blurry too. I have a Nikon D70 and love it but get very frustrated because of not being able to take night shots.

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

I own a Canon GL2 Video Camcorder. While in the Camera Position, it appears on the view screen two horizontal white lines, one on top (1/4" from the top) and the other on the bottom of the screen about 1/4" from the bottom. Even though it does not affect the end result. It makes it very difficult to film as the lines don't allow me to center (align properly) the subject I want to film. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
