Control Panel display no information.

Hi, I just bought new Nikon D80 with 18-135mm lense. Apparently the Control Panel does not display any information while taking the picture. The picture taken is perfect.

Pls help!

    Hello tq,



    Please verify if it is LCD display on top of the camera that you refer to in your problem.



    Warm regards

Do you mean the control panel on top or the big LCD on the back?

The display on top should be showing you stuff like the shutter speed and aperture as you take the picture.

The display on the back will not show you the picture while you're taking it. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

I just got a new fisheye lens for my nikon D50, and I put it on and its saying fEE? What does that mean?


You need to turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you've always done with lenses without an aperture ring.

Got a new Nikon 50 mm 1.8 lens. explain about the small switch with the red dots that unlocks the ring


On older cameras, don't lock the ring. You need to turn the aperture ring in order to control the aperture.

On newer cameras, turn the aperture ring to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. You control the aperture from the camera, the same way as on a lens with no aperture ring. If your camera displays "FEE" on the LCD panel when you put on the lens without locking the ring, then you'll need to lock it.

If you're still not sure whether you need to lock it, please reply to this post giving the model(s) of the camera(s) you want to use with this lens.

I have a nikon D80 purchased with a 18-135mm kit lens which I have found surprisingly good and very sharp as confirmed by Rockwell etc. I bought a Nikon 50mm 1.8D based on the fantastic claims of sharpness...


I don't think you're going to see much difference in sharpness between the two lenses, because they're both such good lenses.

You can use the lens in any exposure mode. Leave the aperture ring set at f/22. Control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you do it with the 18-135mm. The zoom doesn't have an aperture ring --- so just set the ring on the 50mm to f/22 and then pretend it doesn't have one either.

I have just bought a 60mm micro lens. when i put the lens on my Nikon D50 the message FE3 appears on the screen. i have tried taking of the lense and putting it back on but the message still appears.


I hope you mean FEE.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would on a lens with no aperture ring.

FEE message in display when using 50mm lense


The FEE message indicates that the lens is not set to smallest aperture (highest number). The camera body expects this so it will have full control of the aperture. It sounds like you may be accidentally bumping or turning the aperture ring on the lens while using it or changing lenses. There is a little slide lock to lock it at f/22 to prevent this. Turn the aperture ring to 22 and move the slider so the white dot is next to the orange mark on the lens barrel.

Aperture


You need to set the aperture ring on the lens to the minimum f-stop number, i.e. f22,f32. The camera controls the aperture rather than a mechanical setting on the lens
