Are you getting an ERR in the control panel? If so, it's an indication that the camera has malfunctioned. Here's what my D-90 manual says to do. It may work for your D-7000.

SOURCE: nikon coolpix s1 dig camera ,no picture

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.

Press the down arrow until it disappears. That should disable the data view.

SOURCE: Why is there a delay?? Nikon D90

Sounds like you turned on Exposure delay mode (menu d10). This is similar to the "locking up the mirror" (or somethign) feature on canons.

YOu only need it when you doing a tripod shot with long exposure and you want to minimise absolutly all possibility of shake from the camera its self. Lifting the SLR mirror will cause small shake. Generally you can turn this off (i've felt it ona few times my accident and been confused for a second)

SOURCE: nikon d80 problem (err flashing with r09 in the lcd display)

yupz.... r 09,, it was not an error. it mean a value of the camera memory buffer . a memory buffer is temporary memory before your captured images stored to memory card.

The 'Err' error message, mean your camera is malfunction. and all you have to do is contact nikon service center

I cannot take photos when i shot with manual mode.The shutter clicks but no picture is actually taken.Darkness.The auto mode works fine.Lens Nikkor Micro AF-S 105mm.Drives me crazy

When you shoot in manual mode, make sure your camera sensor gets enough light. When you shoot inside with dimm light at 1/1000 of a second or faster and a aperture of 8. all pictures will be black.
The best way to learn shooting in manual, is to shoot a picture in the P mode and put the picture on the screen (>) button. then select the info, where you see time, aperture iso and so on. and even better select the histogram. Note the figures in your head (or on paper) and then goto manual and make sure you have almost the same settings. Then shoot en look what the histogram shows. No histogram on the right, means to little light, so lower the shutter speed, open the diaphragm or increase the ISO. No histogram on the left, means to much light, so higher shutter speed, lower ISO or smaler diaphragm (the aperture number must be up. 3,6 is wide open 16 is almost closed.

85mm 1.4 is not metering exposure on my nikon d7000

It is a manual focus lens. That is for sure. The D7000 only can meter, when a lens is fitted with a chip. Usually the Nikon AF lenses. (other brands like Sigma that are compatible) To my knowledge the Vivitar is not. You only can use this lens in Aperture-priority and manual exposure. See a discussion on Nikon forum about this lens, that is capable of shooting brilliant pictures.

Nikon d7000 r11 error

Is this actually keeping you from shooting? Normally the "r" is an informative message, telling you how many more shots you can shoot in the current burst before the buffer fills. The camera should still take the shot when you fully press the shutter release button.

I have the Nikon D7000, is there a way to take pictures and send them to my printer wirelessly

The D7000 doesn't have wireless capability on its own. However, depending on how your printer is configured, you could use an Eye-Fi card to send your pictures to be printed.

I am on vacation, so no book. I have a nikon d7000 and i want to set a timer to take pictures of my hubby and i. Can u help me?

Press the release mode dial lock and turn the release mode to the one-handed clock symbol. Press the shutter release button to start the self-timer.

If you want to change the length of the self-timer delay, it's the Custom Setting #c3.

The release mode dial is on the top left of the camera (as viewed from the back). The lock is just below and left of the dial.

So, I finally figured out (with your help) how to find BULB in M. But, is it normal to press the ml-l3 button three times to get a picture. I did turn long exp nr to the on position. and the release in...

You should only have to press the button twice to take a picture. In the BULB setting, the first press opens the shutter and the second press closes the shutter. With the long exposure NR turned on, it doubles the picture taking time. If you take a one-minute exposure, for example, the remote will be ignored for a minute after the second press.

Try turning off the long exposure NR just to see whether two presses do the job. If it doesn't, please feel free to reply to this post and provide any additional information you can.

I cannot download my photos from my nikon D7000. I have downloaded ViewNX2 onto my computer (XP) from the cd supplied with the camera but as soon as I plug in the camera and it is picked up as "nw...

ViewNX2 doesn't do the transfer, that's done by the Nikon Transfer program.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

I one of the nikon users(D5000), i want to change to D7000, but i've heard from the camera dealer said, there's a several complaints about Nikon D7000(release shutter) from the other users. Is the problem...

I own a D70, D80 and recently purchased a D7000. I have under 1K on the shutter, and have had no issues. The D7000 had some issues with some stuck green and red pixels, but this was solved shortly afterwards (was the cause for the D7000 being back ordered until recently).

The kind of widespread acceptance this camera received can indicate why there are some people having issues. This can be due to everything from the user's inability to use the camera correctly all the way to an actual hardware problem. Needless to say, the camera comes with a 1 year warranty - and if there is a problem surely Nikon is fixing it for free under the terms of the warranty. I have not had any problems with my D7000.

If you're like me - purchase an extended warranty from SquareTrade (there are other similar providers, too). I opted for 3 years of coverage and coverage from accidental damage from handling (falling, submersion, etc.) for about $210.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.
