Question about Nikon D50 Digital SLR Digital Camera with 28-90mm F/3.3-5.6 Lens

1 Answer

Every picture comes out very dark

All of a sudden (after taking a few pictures fine), my D50 takes only dark pictures. Even when the flash is not needed, the pictures are dark. I changed the memory cards b/c I heard memory cards can go bad, but that did not work. Never had any problems with this camera until a couple days ago.

    Works fine on outdoor photos, just not indoor -- flash seems to be "out of sync" with aperture.

Check your pics on the computer. Are they still dark? If they're OK then problems in camera's display.

SOURCE: My Nikon d40 is all of a sudden taking dark pictures

Silvanus is correct - I have a D200 and often by accident adjust the exposure bias dial when taking the camera out of my backpack resulting in dark shots. I bet this is your problem.

SOURCE: Nikon D100: suddenly all the pictures are black

Ellen,
When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
seconds.
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

SOURCE: Nikon D60 is suddenly taking very dark pictures

I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.

SOURCE: Nikon 4300 CF Card Erro

The Nikon Coolpix 4300 only supports the FAT16 filesystem, so it can only support a 2GB partition. To support 4GB you need a FAT32 filesystem.
Put the card in a CF writer and attached to a PC or Mac. Partition 2x2GB partitions, then format them as FAT16. Now put it into the Coolpix 4300 and it should work.

SOURCE: My Nikon D40 won't take pictures fast.

There is a buffer in your camera that processes your images for storage on your memory card. The larger the file size, the more the buffer is being used per image. That will slow down your image transfer.

Also, memory cards are not just about the size of the memory card. It's very about about transfer rate. Once the buffer is ready to send the image to the card, the card has to be able to accept the MB quickly. If your card has a transfer rate of less than 255, it's going to be slow, especially with larger images.

Moultrie D50 game trail camera won't take pictures in dark


Does the flash work? Could be flash circuit or day/night sensor.If you have another D40/D50 camera that flash works but has other problems,swap out the sensors.If not the sensor but the flash circuit then most likely one of the large charge capacitors which has to be soldered in.I use a digital multimeter with I/O capacitor test function..these caps should be about 250mfd.

Black pictures when using flash


The black images with flash mean that the Iris mechanism in the lens is not working properly, and that needs a professional camera repair service.

Make sure the Exposure Compensation is set to 0. You can find it in the camera menu.

Exposure


check exposure compensation settings.
if no value being added/deducted, then the battery would be next, then check for flash setting deviations.
also, check for white balance settings indoors and make sure to use either auto white balance, or select the type of light you have, such as floro's or incandescent.
otherwise, time for service. could also try with different lens.
