It depends on the camera. On cameras that allow you to set the shutter speed, simply select a slower one.

On many point&shoot cameras, you don't get such control. The best you can do is to select something like the Landscape mode.

Zooming from 18mm to 55m causes lens to darken (pictures taken are the same). This happens in both M and AF.


This is because the aperture varies with the focal length. Note the "f/3.5-5.6" in the lens designation? This means that the maximum aperture is f/3.5 at 18mm and f/5.6 at 55mm. If you set the aperture first and then zoom, the aperture could change by as much as one-and-a-third stops.
To prevent this, zoom first and then meter the exposure.

Just got a 500mm f8.0 Telephoto Lens for my Nikon D90. When I connect it according to the instructions I am certain I have mounted the lens properly to my camera, I have a universal T mount to connect to...


The lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You must switch the camera to Manual exposure mode by turning the mode dial to M. The lens has only aperture, f/8, and so you have to control the exposure by changing the shutter speed and/or ISO. Unfortunately, the D90's light meter will not give you any help here.

You can get a general idea of the exposure by using another lens before mounting the 500mm. From there you can fine-tune the exposure by using the histogram display on the LCD monitor. This is how I do it with my D90 and 500mm lens.

Shooting with a Nikon zoom such as 18-200 with a Nikon SB800 flash on a Nikon D300 body. I make an exposure of a person and the result is exceptable and then I zoom to the whole group of five people and it...


Depends on the zoom length. If you check exposure at zoom 18 mm then zoom to (lets say) 100 for the final picture the flash will zoom concentrating the flash power as well; the flash gets stronger. This is all explained in the SB-800 manual. On a zoom such as the 18-200 the more you zoom the smaller the f/stop. You are better off with a zoom that maintains its f/stop through the entire zoom range. That way when you check exposure at 18 mm lets say f/2.8 then zoom in it will maintain the same f/stop. Myself I am not a big fan of zooms especially ones when zoomed change to a smaller f/stop.

Can not take a picture, setting are not correct


Digital cameras allow you to take pictures at different quality setting. The higher the setting the better the photo quality. Higher settings use more memory then lower settings. If you intend to make prints, always use a medium or high setting. The low setting should only be used when all you want to do is view the pictures on your computer or send them by email or over the Internet.

Recommended camera settings for portraits:
Focal length: 100 mm
Aperture: F2.8 (as large a f/stop as is available for proper exposure)
Exposure / Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority / Portrait
Flash: Fill-in, if face is in shadow

Recommended camera settings for landscapes:
Focal length: 38 mm
Aperture: F16 (as small a f/stop as is available for proper exposure)
Exposure / Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority / Landscape
Tripod: Yes, for long exposures

Image Properties shown....You've been great!!!! Few more....


1: it just adds and copies existing pixels with the digi zoom. I never fooled with it for you can just take the image with a paint program and blow it up as big as you want.. with decreasing detail.just start with a nice high megapixel like 5M camera but you'll need a bigger memory card.

2: exposure bias at 0.0 is what the camera sets as standard. adjusting this in the "M" mode allows more exposure "+" or less "-". making the aperture bigger or smaller to allow more light or less at higher shutter speeds or low speeds. 1/100 is good.
3: yes but try it out and put it on automatic first.
4: focal length or f stop I'm confused. The aperture setting is known as the f-stop. The lowest number f-stop lets the most amount of light reach the image sensor. A high f-stop increases the depth of the field.witch is focal length. so I think I was wrong in the "feet" meaning f/2.8 for portrait or up close f'/16 for front and background or landscape. also set your ISO around 80 - 120 for the best exposures or pictures.

Image Properties shown....


1: bias means voltage a neg or plus I assume the plus means more exposure.
2: focal length in feet ..if not using auto-focus
3: 4.6 feet
4: digital zoom is something I would never mess with but 3072/3072 sounds like a 3 megapixal square.
5: yes set the exposure to a fast shutter or bias in your case like - 3
6: why sure and quite a few pics in 1 minute with the right camera.

Extremely long time writing to CF card


IIRC these cameras support a noise reduction feature through a custom function. The camera will take a second exposure with the shutter closed (i.e. against something pure black) to see which pixels in the camera are "hot", and then will use that information to remove that hot pixel noise from the original image. "hot" pixels depend on temperature and exposure length so the camera would need to do this on every shot.
