Nikon D40 won't stay in remote mode

When I set the camera to use the wirless remote for my Nikon D40, it automatically sets back to the manual shutter release after a very short period of time. If I wait 30 seconds or so between pictures, I have to go back into the menu and set it back to the remote setting. Any suggestions? Or is this just an unfortunate flaw in the camera?

Re: Nikon D40 won't stay in remote mode

Read manual ! you can change it up tp 15min.

Find in Custom Settings > "17 remote duration".
if it is not there change first in SETUP MENU>CSM/Setup menu from "simple" to "full"

I have a Nikon D40 and when it's in M and S mode the shutter stays open for too long and my pictures come out completely white.

What shutter speed(s) are you using? What happens when you use a faster shutter speed? In the S and M modes you are responsible for setting the shutter speed, and you can set it to anything within the camera's range.

How to use the remote

If you're using a wired remote, you don't have to do anything special. Simply use the button on the remote instead of the shutter release button on the camera.

If you're using an infrared remote, set your camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote, Delayed mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back.

Slow sync flash - nikon d40

Set the exposure mode to Manual (M) or Shutter-priority (S) and specify the shutter speed yourself. You'll have to set it sufficiently slow in order to see any difference between front- and rear-curtain.

How do I take a picture with my d40 using the remote?

Set the Shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote shoots the picture as soon as you press the button, Delayed-response remote waits two seconds to allow you to hide the remote behind your back.

Shooting Mode is on page 32 of my copy of the manual.

Nikon D40 will not autofucus.

Check if the swithch on to your left on the lens set to 'A'. If it is set to M this will be in manual mode and autofocus does not take place.
If this doesn't help, try removing the lens and re-fixing it firmly and properly.
Trust this helps.

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem

The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. Learn to use the camera for ur events. Experiment it's all about trial and error. Ray

I have a Nikon D40, and when I set the mode dial to Close up the shutter button won't always depress.

It's because you are to close to the subject. You can back off or set your lens to manual and the shutter will release whether or not it is in focus.
