Depending on how long you have had the camera - Nikon may come up with a free solution. Contact Technical Support at Nikon. The auto focus is not functioning as it should. Do make sure you are not covering any 'Windows' on the front of the camera when taking, shots.

Macro focus


That is correct. None of Nikon's 70-300mm lenses are designed as macro lenses. They won't focus closer than about 1.5 meters or 5 feet.

The camera will not focus when I try to take up-close shots. Such as an eye. I would like to photograph just an eye but whenever I try to zoom or walk in close enough the camera refuses to focus, haha....


Normally the closest focus you can get is 1.6 ft at W and 3.0 ft at T. In Macro mode you can get down to 3.9 inches. In Super Macro mode you can get even closer.

To get into Macro mode, press the Flower button until the flower appears on the LCD. To get into Super Macro mode, keep pressing the Flower button until an S appears inside the flower.

For full details, refer to your manual. In my copy, it starts on page 56.

Focus problems


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.

The other reason is focus, or lack thereof. You didn't specify what cameras you have, but if they're Coolpixes, they most likely have a close-up or macro mode that will allow the lens to focus closer. If you're using a DSLR, you will need some other way to focus closer. Macro lenses, extension tubes, and close-up filters are three ways of achieving this.

I'd like to purchase a micro lens for my Nikon camera. My question is: Does the Phoenix AF 100mm f/3 5 Macro Telephoto Lens used with Nikon D 90''


If the Phoenix lens is autofocus (AF) in Nikon mount, it will work with the D90. You may find that you want to switch to manual focus when you are using it for macro shots for better control of focus. It will still set exposure properly when set to manual focus.

Lens for Nikon D60


I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.

Problems using camera


Hey PopPop1,
The N2000/F301 should be a manual focus only camera. The autofocus version of this camera was called the N2020/F501. The lens you have should still work on the camera, but you should have to focus the camera manually. I have an autofocus camera and whenever I shoot macro images I would much prefer manually focusing anyway.

Sincerely,
Allan
