SOURCE: Digiscope

Hey timpo,
I would definitely use some kind of remote release since even the smallest amount of camera shake (pressing the shutter button) can cause blurry images in high magnification images. At the type of magnifications usually involved in digiscopeing the depth of field of your images will be greatly reduced and you will need to set the camera to a smaller aperture than usual, which should result in slower shutter speeds. I would definitely have the camera set to manual exposure mode so you can control both the shutter and the aperture although aperture priority should also work well. I would not set the camera to a higher iso since you will lose quality, and since I am assuming you are using a tripod slow shutter speeds should not be an issue. Any movement by the subject will blur the subject if you are using slow shutter speeds so if this becomes an issue you can set the camera to a wider aperture at the loss of depth of field to achieve a faster shutter speed. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Memory Card


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Memory card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

P5100 Nikon


I have the same problem as you... Nikon acknowledges that they have this problem on other Coolpix models, see: http://home.nikon-asia.com/pagearticle.php?pageid=43-7cc915b40d

Now, how do we get Nikon to acknowledge that this is a problem on the 5100 as well?

It sounds like the lock switch on the SD card is in the wrong position. Take the card out and move the switch away from the locked position and re-install it.

Lock up


Zoom failure suggests zoom motor stalled - no repair Un able to take photos- main circuit failure. Checxk all the ovoise things Battery state- is it goog and delivering full power. Have you set it to the Photo mode or is it stuck in some other function. Get hold the the manual and do a thorough check of all functions. There is usually a FULL manual in PDF format on the supplied CD.
