Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

Power zoom function

According to the manual I am able to use the zoom function automatically with the D70s, but I can not figure out how to get it to work. It says without the small M above where it says ZOOM, the zoom head position will be automatically adjusted. If a small M appears, press the buttons which look like trees several times until this disappears. I have tried this and nothing happens! Can anyone help me to understand how I can get my flash to zoom automatically? Thank you.

If you have the difuser on the zoom does not work as it assumes you are at close range. Remove the defuser and try again, good luck , Bob.

It should. Nikon lenses are both backwards and forward compatible. Depending if you have an older or newer lens than camera, some of the automatic functions may not work or may not be available. Worst case, you will be able to use your lens in the manual mode.

How to select zoom in sony ericsson c510?



You can zoom in to a map or satellite image by pressing 3 on the numberpad (Figure 9), or zoom out by pressing 1 (Figure 10). Multiple presses will zoom you closer in or further out, respectively.
Above is how to Zoom In & Out, below is your user and troubleshooting manual for your convenience. Anything else to do with the Zoom function is inside.

I want to disable to auto zoom feature but it will not allow me...every time i set it up it starts to auto focus and zoom...i wish to disable these..any help?thankyou


Zoom :
  • 3 x digital zoom (automatic or manual)
  • Travelling-ZoomTM function : Always be in the frame with this unique feature which tracks your face and even enlarges the field of view if there is more than one person in the frame. All completely automatic, just look at the web cam!
The above tells me that you can have automatic or manual 3x digital zoom. Go to the manual mode for the digital zoom and problem might be solved.

They both will work with the D70s. One has a longer zoom range, the other has Vibration Reduction. The decision is yours. Do you want the range or the VR? How much money do you want to spend?

My wife has a nikon d70 with a quantary 28-200 zoom lens. F2.8-F5.6. It takes great picutres during the day. At low light and nightime the longer range pictures will not stay in focus. She set the focus...


The camera is unable to focus properly in low light at long focal lengths. You might have to throw some light on the subject with a flashlight until the camera locks in the focus or resort to focussing manually.

How to achieve full zoom with a Nikon 55-200mmf/4-5.6G ED lens?!


1) What camera body are you using?

2) I do not understand your assertion that it automatically zoomed in. Zooming is a manual function. The automatic functions of your lens pertain only to focusing on of the subject so that your picture is sharp and ensuring that the correct amount of light is admitted so that you have a correct exposure.

3) Are you sure you were turning the zoom ring and not the f-stop ring? The zoom ring is labeled 200 on one end of the scale and 55 on the other. It is also the widest ring on the lens barrel. When you rotate it, the physical length of the lens will lengthen as you rotate it clockwise (viewed from behind the camera) and shorten as you rotate it counter-clockwise.

4) For reference, at 200mm the angle of view on your lens should be 10 degrees and at 55mm about 40 degrees.

According to manual you should use the navigational d-pad left and right arrows. If it does not zoom in it is probably because resolution is at the maximum allowed and you cannot zoom in any further.
