    thank you for your response. The problem occurs both in daylight and by flash and when photos are taken in every mode, at every combination of shutter speeds and f-stops. I called Nikon this morning and it is a sensor failure. He walked thru resetting with me and nothing fixed the problem. I sent him photo samples and we came to the conclusion it was that the sensor is failing.

    Is it happening when you are taking out photographs in Daylight or by Flash?

Are these flash photos? If so, make sure you don't have the lens hood on. Also make sure the shutter speed is slower than the sync speed.

Otherwise, is this happening at a variety of shutter speeds? With fresh batteries?

I use my Nikon D50 for work and I am now required to have a date on all my pictures. Does the Nikon D50 have a facility to do this? If so how is it done?


All digital pictures include Exif Data which shows when the picture was taken and using what camera. Most photo edit programs like Picasa etc will show this data very readily. The times of printing a date onto the photo are gone, though there may be a setting to do it on your camera.

What does ''CHA'' mean on my Nikon D50 I can't seem to take any photo's


You haven't provided enough details to be sure of the problem, but I suspect you have either bought a new memory card that is either the wrong type or too large for that camera. If it is still the original memory card that you first used with your camera, try reformating the card.

Dropped Nikon Camera Sadness


Hi Al
not sure if i can help here but will try.
Ive not owned the D50 but i have the feeling the highlights function is similar to other cameras in the Nikon range.

On your cursor when viewing an image, just press down on the cursor maybe once or twice to remove the highlights .This is just a pointer for you like the histogram.

Now it seems like you may have damaged the sensor and will not collect enough light.

Try setting the camera to A = aperture priority and take a shot in bright light...no flash.

Are the images still dark ?

If so raise your iso to 800 and shutter speed to 1/250 at F5.6 aperture in mode S =shutter priority and take the shot in bright conditions.

Are the shots still dark ?

Nikon D100: suddenly all the pictures are black


Ellen,
When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
seconds.
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

CANT VIEW PHOTOS ON MY PC


TURN OFF CAMERA. TURN ON PC. CONNECT USB TO CAMERA AND THEN PC. TURN ON CAMERA. PC SHOULD ALERT THAT NEW HARDWARE BEING INSTALLED (D-60). WAIT UNTIL COMPLETE. GO TO "MY COMPUTER" CLICK ON D-60 THAT SHOULD REGISTER AS A DRIVE. OPEN FILE OF D-60. CLICK UNTIL PHOTOS APPEAR. COPY PHOTOS TO NEW FILE IN "MY DOCUMENTS /MY PICTURES" CLICK ON PHOTOS. WINDOWS SHOULD SHOW YOUR PHOTOS. OK?

Taking a black and white photo.


You can't, there is no black and white mode on the D50. You will need to take color photos and convert them with photo editing tool.

Nikon D50 flash not synchronizing


Ok this is a crappy fix but it works for me.

If your flash isn't syncing correctly make sure your on auto flash. when your flash flips up and you get the beep push the piece that holds the flash just a little forward. and walla your flash syncs up.
