    let me know, do you see live view in viewfinder (eye piece) to shoot picture?

    while seeing in viewfinder, can you zoom the image?
    live view is what you are seeing in viewfinder and confirm it by moving camera little bit so the image will be changed according to movement.

    check that camera has been set on camera mode, then press shutter button and take a snap.

    Please read user manual and do the steps as said in manual.
    when you power ON camera, you will see live view (image) and you can take snap by pressing shutter button with right index finger if you hold camera in right hand.
    You also need to format memory card before taking picture.
    user manual will give you few information for initial set up of camera. Please follow those steps.

Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and then forget it's there. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.

I cannot get the information display off the viewer panel of my Nikon D60 can you assist?


You can get rid of the information screen by pressing the [i] button at the bottom left. However you'll still have to use the viewfinder to take your photos. Nikon didn't allow the LCD to be used for LiveView until they introduced the D3 and D300 a year after the D60.

Price for nikon d300


D300 can be found scarcely new. It has been replaced with a newer model D300S. The D300S incorporates video and both SD and CF capability for extended uses of writing the photos. One card can be used as backup, or one can be used to write RAW files and the other JPEGs. Some slight changes were added to the menu {active D-lighting}, and the D300S also was give a slight boost to 7FPS. Used D300 on the market go for $900 - $1300 depending on its history.

Nikon d300 depth of field button cover replacement


I think the factory repair service is the best choice for this type repair. The El Segundo location worked well for me. You may be able to contact them by phone (number on the Nikon web site) and ask about cost, but if you ship the camera to them they will give you a quote before starting work.

Cable release won't work


I use a cable release on my D300 quite often and in all modes (timed, multiple or single exposures). I am not aware of any special programming or set up requirements. If the release works on one camera and not the other, then you are correct in your diagnosis.
Contact Nikon service. The number and info is on the Nikon web site.
There are two locations. I have had good luck with the El Segundo location.
