Nikon D100 Manual shooting help

I think i have my D100 on all the correct settings in order to take manual photographs. The iso and fstop are all correct but my camera will not let me take a picture unless my flash is on. Everything is working fine in auto mode, with or without the flash. Does anyone know what the correct settings are in order to take a manual photograph?

The mode dial (topside left) must be set to M. That's it for manual settings - the camera won't check anything, and certainly shouldn't require the flash. You need to choose your own shutter speed and aperture settings to get a good photo, but the camera will let you take a picture no matter how you have it set.

Err is usually a camera malfunctrion. Re,ove the batery,a aaaaaatuen camera switch off/on 2-3 times *as if battery still in), replace battery and try again. Read Owners manual or got to Nikonusa.com to download a manual (or to ask Nikon) and determine if your D100 has a hardware reset switch(my dc70 does) and utilize that. If tht does not solve the issue, then service by an authorized Nikon tech is advised.

Nikon ISO D100


Sounds like you are set in ISO AUTO. This will change your ISO when you are in light that is low enough to give underexposure. In most of the shooting modes, the D100 will change shutter and/or aperature to prevent underexposure, but if it can't avoid the underexposure, it will change the ISO to correct the underexposure.

It also sounds like you have a low light shooting situation. The blur you see is likely from the long exposure, which is pretty hard to hand hold. Noise in the picture would be from the high ISO, but if it's a noise problem you probably don't have blur.

Avoiding the blur is best done with a tripod or a shutter speed of at most 1/60. If you can't get a good exposure at 1/60 or faster, then try the tripod. If you can't use a tripod, then let the ISO (in auto) go up to 1600 and then remove the noise with photoshop or another photo editor. You'll have to play around with the noise reduction settings to get one that works for you.

The key to low light photos is to make sure you get an exposure that isn't blurred, even if you have to use a high ISO. It's easy to remove the noise in software, but blurry photos can't be fixed.

Do not seem to have it set up correctly, very slow shutter speed. Just bought the camera.


The D100 was the first SLR digital camera that Nikon made. In its day it was awesome, top of the line technology. Today, it's hard to even find them for sale because they are so old. I have a D100 and it is a great camera but you have to be patient with it - it is a grandfather now. It is slow. It is a fantastic camera and you can still shoot great action shots but you have to use a bit more planning then you would on a more new camera. Just be patient with it and treat it with care and it will produce images you will love and be proud of.

Nikon D100: Lazy mirror return.


The reason the mirror is acting up is because the Shutter is going bad under slow shutter speeds. > The motor which drives the shutter charge and the mirror up and down is the same .

Grainey photos


Hi,
Firstly check the ISO setting isnt up high, this will introduce more noise than a lower setting.

A reset may help press and hold the +/- and AF buttons for more than 2 seconds (page 44 of the manual)

else there is a full reset button just below the USB port (page 129 of the manual)
you can download the manual from ftp://ftp.nikon-euro.com/Manuals/ppY_QFonPh/D80-En_05.pdf or
http://services.yesmembers.net/yes/content/D80_en.pdf

Unlikely but possible, depends what you mean by grainy, check the sensor hasnt a fine coating of dust, not on a nikon but I had a kind of grainy effect after photographing in a print works where they used a very fine dust, I foolishly changed lenses and was left with a fine dust coating on the sensor which gave a speckled/grainy effect...

best of luck

THE D100 REFUSED TO SHOOT THE PAINTING IN THE INSERTED IMAGE. CAMERA IN ALL OTHER RESPECTS WORKING FINE. TRIED ALL MODES.


When you say you tried full manual, I just wanted to check that you also switched to manual focus? The D100 has a switch on the right side of the lens, says M, S, C, for manual, single, or continuous focus? You need that in M with a painting like that, or to should truly diffuse subjects like clouds or fog.

The reason it works fine with only part of the painting in frame is that the camera can then identify and focus on the edge of the painting. It could also focus on any painting with linear or sharp detail. Autofocus is rather clever, but not clever enough!

If you had indeed set manual focus, then I admit I'm stumped. Full manual mode with manual focus never refuses to trigger the shutter on my D70; although it does often take pictures I don't understand at first. :) Good luck -- let us know what you find out, please!

Continous shooting with D100 - it doesn't work...


Mine too. It's a worn-out selector switch. Jiggle it and it'll work again. Time delay same. Our college has four Nikon D100s with this problem. Poor switch contacts.
