Re: Nikon D1

Make sure that the lens is locked in the highest aperture setting. If it still doing the same try the camera in the Manual mode or AP.

I have a Nikon N80. I want to get a D5000. I have two Quantaray lenses for the N80. One is a 28-80mm af the other is a 70-300 af.I would like to know if the lenses will work. I know I will have no auto...

Yes, they will work. As you pointed out, they will not autofocus, but everything else will work, most importantly the exposure metering.

Bear in mind that the D5000 sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. The lenses will seem longer on the D5000, about the equivalent of 42-120mm and 105-450mm. This means that the shorter lens won't really be a wide-angle anymore, though the longer lens will now be a whopping telephoto.

Black at the bottom of the pictures

Possible causes :
1. dirt or dust in camera or lens
2. dirt on sensor
3. sensor is cracked
If you are using the built-in flash and a telephoto lens, the end of the lens can block some of the light from the flash and that appears as a slightly rounded black "hump" at the bottom of your picture.

When taking indoor photos, sometimes i get shadows on different placesof the photo

If you're getting shadows on the bottom center of indoor photos when take with a flash, it is most probably due to the length of the lens on the camera.

A long, telephoto / zoom lenses will create the largest amount of shadow, while shorter and wide angle lenses will be least likely cast shadows. You can reduce the amount of shadow in pictures by removing the lens hood that may be on the end of the lens. The lens hood is to primarily to shield the lens from direct (sun) light, and probably isn't needed for indoor flash photography. Also, rely less on the zoom function of the lens on the camera and physically moving closer to your subject instead. The flash will need to provide much less light output and result in more flashes per battery.

You could use a separate flash - held off the camera so that the lens is not obstructing the light of the on camera flash. Using a Nikon Speed Light, you can set the on camera flash to provide a low output, that would be used primarily to trigger a Nikon Speed Light held by someone or arranged on another surface etc. Youtube is a great source for real life, practical "How To" videos for many operations of the camera and accessories.

I hope this was helpful!

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"

There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

How to shoot night scene with people dancing?

You could use flash. Depending on distance, you might want to go with one of Nikon's add on flash units. SB-600 is very cost effective.

You could also buy the excellent f1.8 50mm lens that Nikon makes. It's about $120 new. It's a prime lens (no zoom/telephoto) but it is one of the best lenses Nikon makes. It works very well in low light. There are also some other large aperature lenses, but cost goes up as f goes down!

I want to use fairly telephoto lens in D3 slr nikon camera

You don't say what sort of telephoto you want to buy or how much money you want to spend but basically anything longer than a 50 mm is regarded as telephoto.
A staring point for you maybe the lens listed below: Nikon Telephoto Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR
It importantly has VR or "Vibration Reduction" on it to reduce camera blur when hand holding telephoto shots. This is just a staring point... You need to work out what you want to photograph Cheers Ian

Purchase Zoom Lenses

Canon currently makes super Telephoto lenses from 300mm to 800mm and a number of zoom Telephoto lenses from 28-300 to 100-400. You can also special order a 1200mm lens from Canon at a cost of $99k! (There are only about 20 such lenses made so far.)

You can also get a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter to further increase the power of a telephoto lens. However, the cameras are unable to auto-focus when the minimum f-stop exceeds f/8, which can happen when you use one (or both) of the teleconverters on these longer lenses, so you have to manually focus the lens.

You can also get telephoto lenses from other manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma that are built to work with Canon cameras. However, the Canon lenses are generally regarded as the best quality.
