When you want to use the time exposure with your remote control, you need to be in the M mode (Manual) then you can select time Bulb. One step farther then 30 seconds. Then you can press the ML-L3 to start and again after some time to stop the exposure.

How do I take a 30 second time exposure for Northern Lights tripod


Fit the camera to the tripod. Set the camera to timed exposure and use either a cable release, or a remote control to open the shutter and either release the lock on the cable release or press the remote control a second time.

How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

Can i use my vivitar 4600 with my nikon d300s?


Yes. You can use the flash in auto or manual mode by setting the camera to manual shutter speed within the x-sync range and then selecting the aperture prescribed by the flash guide number or the displayed automatic f-stop on the flash. The flash can provide auto exposure with the camera in manual mode, but you need to be aware of the amount of ambient light which will not cause any exposure corrections by the camera in this mode. Another alternative is to select Aperture preferred automatic on the camera and the f-stop shown for the auto flash settings. This will allow the camera to vary the shutter speed but may cause long exposures if the camera is not sensitive to real-time flash readings.

My cannon g12 camera takes over exposed photographs. he shutter is working well. so, help me.


Check your Exposure Compensation Dial. In shooting modes where exposure compensation is allowed, this dial can be set to decrease or increase the brightness of the image in 1/3-stop increments across a range of -2 to 2. You use this control to override the camera's automatic exposure settings to get a slightly darker or lighter image. It should be set to 0.

What is best setting on NikonD-3000 to have remote work?


That depends on what you want to do. The camera has two remote modes, the quick-response and the delayed. The quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. This is useful if you mount the camera on a tripod and want to shoot without touching the camera. The delayed mode waits two seconds before firing the camera. This is useful for group portraits, giving you the time to hide the remote behind your back before the picture is taken.

As for the exposure and other settings, again, that depends on what you want to do. In general, you can use the same settings you would use if you weren't using the remote.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

How do you take a 15 or 30 minute exposure with the Nikon D5000 and how do you set the remote up to snap the picture in this kind of mode?


For really long exposures (longer than 30 seconds) you need to set the camera to the Manual exposure mode and set the shutter speed to bulb. This keeps the shutter open as long as you hold down the shutter release button. Since this is inconvenient, a much easier way is with the remote.

Press the [info] button to bring up the shooting information display. Press the [i] button to put the cursor into the display. Use the cursor keys to move to the release mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press the OK button. The Quick-response remote mode (marked with an icon of the remote control) fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. the Delayed remote mode (marked with the remote and "2s") gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back when taking self-portraits.

In either of the remote modes, when the shutter speed is set to bulb the shutter opens when you press the button on the remote and stays open until you press the button again (or the camera battery dies). This way you can press the button, go and do something else for a while, then come back and press the button again.

Information on the release modes is in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 65 in my copy). Information on using the remote control is in the "Self-Timer and Remote Modes" section of the manual (page 67 in my copy).

I cant get corect skin colour tone in auto white balance.i got some photographs and i see exif data of that photos in photoshop.at the exposure mode it showing manual exposure but at the scene cature type...


You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

Flash exposure does not work in Av and Tv mode


There is nothing wrong here - the camera computes the exposure as the flash is not firing. The flash will fire and it will adapt the power to the received light. You must go into M ot AV, fix your parameters and shoot. The flash will adapt to your whishes - only take care to not choose a shooting time to small (1/200 or 1/60 - you have settings for it).

This is not a bug, but a feature.

Shutter priority mode?


s I understand it from what I have seen on the Web, the 3000Z can operate in several modes: 1. Fully automatic (camera select both 2. Manual (user sets both aperture and shutter speed). 3. Aperture Priority mode - user sets aperture and camera chooses correct shutter speed to get a good exposure Apparently there is no Shutter Priority mode (user cannot set only the shutter er speed and allow the camera to set the aperature to get a good exposure). This option is available on the Epson 850Z camera and this seems like a silly ommision to make on a "high-end" camera like the 3000Z.
