Nikon d80, setting not remembered

Hi,

I have a problem with my Nikon d80. At some point some of the values like: shutter speed, F-number, exposure compensation and maybe some more properties, simply got stuck on the values there were set, and now whenever I change a value, it is changed, but after the several seconds, after the camera is going into "resting" mode, the value that was set returns to the "stuck" value. I was trying resting the values, but it didn't work. I feels like some electrical issue. I removed the battery and put it back with no luck. Can anyone shade some light on this issue?

    Thanks, I kinda had this feeling...
    Since I am already using the D300, I am less stressed about fixing it...

I'm thinking it's an internal problem - probably needs fixing at Nikon. I can't think what else you can do.

Vivitar 84mm 1.4 aspherical on Nikon D80


If you mean the 85mm, it's not an autofocus lens. Nor does it have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to set the camera to manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M) and set the exposure manually. Set the shutter speed by turning the command dial on the back of the camera and the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens.

Again, this is a manual lens. No auto-anything. But it's a nice fast lens, with shallow depth of field when you want it.

What is EV on the menu


Hi cute_chic24,

EV is Exposure value refers to the amount of light for a given exposure. It is denoted as a single number. Its value is subsequently used to calculate the correct combination of shutter speed and aperture at a given ISO speed of the sensor.
Starting point is a shutter speed of 1 second at f1, which is denoted as EV 0. Further up the scale a single exposure of EV13 could be ISO 100, f8 - 1/125s, or f11 - 1/60s.

It doesn't make any difference which combination you choose, as all variations at the same EV will ensure a correct exposure. Remember though, you are always balancing camera or subject movement against depth of field. This is because a change in aperture will require a change in shutter speed for an equal amount of light to reach the sensor or CCD. If you set the shutter speed one stop slower and aperture one stop smaller, exposure doesn't change, but you increase depth of field slightly and the possibility of blur.

In S mode camera wont take a pic, r09 comes on screen


The r09 is just the display that tells you how many pictures you have in the memory buffer for shooting in continuous mode. There are a few reasons why it might not take a pic in S, but normally it's when it's not in focus. Maybe you have it pointed at something too close for the lens to focus. It also could be that your shutter speed setting is way too fast for the available light.

In S mode, the camera will use your shutter speed setting and adjust the aperature to match the light. If it can't get enough light at the shutter speed set, then it won't expose. Keep in mind this isn't just for exposures that are close to being right, only when the shutter speed is so fast or slow that the exposure isn't in the ballpark.

Try moving your shutter speed up or down.

Have Nikon D80 with 18-200VR lens. Am getting consistently overexposed pictures. Kindly advise. Thank you


Please check your exposure value (EV) settings. You may have raised this and forgot to move it back.

You should be able to play with exposure also via the Shutter, Aperture and ISO settings

Blue corners when shooting in BULB


With the same exposure settings, you should get the same result. When using Bulb in Manual mode, you also need to be sure you have set the lens aperture to the largest opening (lowest number). And don't forget to set ISO to 1600. Since the D80 has shutter speeds as long as 30" (minutes) I recommend you use them instead of Bulb, unless you need longer.

The blue areas are heat noise from long exposure -- other electronic components near the sensor are generating heat from the constant current flow. Be sure you check your Shooting Menu settings to set Long Exposure NR to ON and also High ISO NR to HIGH.

Soligor mirror 500 on Nikon D-80 ????


The D80 is not able to set exposure with non-CPU lenses like your Soligor, so it probably is very far off on the correct exposure. You must operate in Manual mode and choose a shutter speed appropriate for the lighting. Reflex (mirror) lenses have no aperture adjustment, and I'm guessing your Soligor 500mm is probably f/8 like just about every other 500mm reflex. A good starting exposure for a typical sunlit scene would be 4x your ISO setting. For example, at ISO 400 set your shutter speed to 1600.

D80 shutter issue


contactjoni,
Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.

D 80, controling shutter speed


dear hydet

use 'Program Shift'. This will change the values for both aperture & exposure, but keep the overal exposure value correct. Eg if the standard values are 1/60th of a second at f5.6, then rotating the dial in one direction will change the parameters (first) to 1/30th & f8, etc, and turning it in the other direction will change them to 1/125th & f4.

oke, post in me back


thx
