Question about Nikon D2X Digital Camera

1 Answer

Apperture on Nikon d2x doesn't close after 3.5-4.5

It depends on the lens used, for example: with my 35mm f/2, the only usable apertures are from 2 to 3.2, with my 20mm f/2.8 the usable range is 2.8 - 4. Thus the smaller aperture openings (from 4.5 onwards) cannot be used ( "Err" is displayed on the top screen, where the shutter speed and aperture settings are shown). If anyone knows what to do, please let me know.

You need to "lock" the lens at the smallest aperature. With the lens removed from the camera, rotate the ring to the smallest aperture, which is the largest number (like 16 or 22). Next to that number you will see a small slide switch. Move that switch. It loocks that ring at that setting.

Remount the lens and try.

D2x won't work when a lens is attached


Did you try to reset the camera to factory settings? Won't work, does that mean everything stays out? Or you can't make a picture and still view pictures you made? Is there an error in the display, like fEE. That would be caused by the sensor, looking if your diaphragmatic setting on the lens is locked on the smallest aperture. Could be dust, or worse the sensor is damaged. Then the camera must be repaired.

Sorry to say that this should be done by camera tech, not a user repair.

NIKON D3100 zoom problem


The D3100 doesn't have digital zoom capabilities. The zoom range depends on the lens you have fitted on. The 5.6 sounds like the aperture. The maximum aperture also depends on the lens.

The S3100 does have digital zoom capabilities. Is this the camera you're referring to? Or are you confusing the specs of the two cameras?

50mm f/1.8 not working with Nikon D90


If the screen is saying "FEE" and not "f/33" then you need to set the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera, the same as on a lens without an aperture ring.

Is the nikorF AF 35 to 105mm Lens compatible to Nikon D7000? How about tamron 70 to 210mm with 52 adaptor?


The Nikkor lens is fully compatible. The Tamron is dependent on the mounting. Tamron makes lenses for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. If the lens has a Nikon mount, there should be no problem using it with the D7000.

Remember that the D7000's sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This will cause the lenses to produce a field of view that is smaller than on a 35mm camera. The 35-105mm, for example, will give a field of view similar to what a 53-160mm would produce on a film camera.

My 17-35 nikon lens will only operate at 22 aperture on my D-70 camera.


Since the 17-35mm AF-D lens has an aperture ring, it must be locked at its minimum aperture. You control the aperture from the camera, the same way you do so on a lens without an aperture ring.

I got a Nikon D5000 and 18-55mm lens. When I take pictures using focal between 18-24 mm the deep of field is not sharp especially for landscape pictures. I made at list 200 pictures (the same image) test...


We need to understand Depth of Field first. Depth of field increase in two ways, one with the Aperture setting and one with the distance the lens is focused on. Example, at F22 focused at 10 feet the Depth of Field will be (assume for the example) from 7ft to 20 ft. You need to use the camera in aperture mode, set it to a "Slow" aperture, the larger the number the slower the aperture. Example F2.8 is "fast or Open, F22 is slow or "closed". The problem is not in your lens or camera. To get maximum Depth of fuield you need to shoot in Aperture Mode, set the f-stop to F11 or slower, F16, F22. The use manual focus to focus the lens. Using auto focus is "ok" for many scenes but to get MAX Depth of field you cannot let the camera select the object to focus on. Here is the BEST way to do it. Setup your camera in Aperture mode, set F-stops as suggested above. Focus on the subject that you want and shoot. Dont forget, the camera will be using slow shutter speeds like this so camera shake will create blurr that can be confused with out of focus. Shooting slow at F11 to F22 usually required a good tripod. Also, another thing to know, Field of focus is deeper "behind" the spot you are focusing on than in "Frint" of the point you are focused on. Good luck, Worm1855

My d90 flashes an err sign somtimes when i shoot at manual mode.. but when i change my apperture and shutter speed setting, it will not appear anymore. Even at auto mode sometimes it flashes an err. Does...


Try shooting in manual mode with lens set at maximum (wide open) aperture. Then try at a smaller f-stop, say 5.6 or 8. If the error message appears when your lens is set to the smaller aperture, you could have a lens problem. Try another lens using the same test. If a known good lens gives an error message, then the problem is in the body. Also try zooming to different focal lengths and see if your 18-105mm gives the error at particular focal lengths. An error here would indicate a lens problem. In any case, your lens or body would have to be repaired by a professional as these repairs require major disassembly and re-calibration.

D50 aperture control assemly


unlikely - these are high-precision parts - even disassembled and repaired by Nikon, the lens is never the same. The 18-55mm lens that came with the outfit goes for under $200. Depending what other glass you own, - and if you can afford it - go for the 18-200 VR and consider it a blessing in disguise. This lens is amazing in quality and universal usability.

What camera is this?

If DSLR, that out the lens from body. Look into the lens, is aperture is closed or opened? It should be open on Canon and open or closes on Nikon(make sure you can turn the Aperture ring).
