If you're using a Nikon camera, you want to lock the aperture ring at its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

This has nothing to do with the focal length. You can shoot at any focal length from 28mm to 200mm.

I'm surprised it works at all at f/2.8. The FEE indicates that the aperture ring is not at its minimum setting (largest f/number).

Turn the aperture ring to its minimum setting. You should be able to control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

Hi,

You should turn the aperture ring on the lens toits smallest setting (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it inplace. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would on alens with no aperture ring.

Let me know if you need more information


Thanks

How do you take a pic with the Nikon d60 where the background is blurred?


You're trying for what's called a narrow depth of field. DoF is controlled by three factors: distance from camera to subject, lens focal length, and lens aperture. The closer the camera is to the subject, the narrower the DoF. The longer the lens focal length, the narrower the DoF. The larger the lens aperture, the narrower the DoF.

Get as close to the subject as practical, and use as long a focal length as practical. I realize these two aims conflict with each other. For portraits, you want a focal length in the 50-90mm range and move in to fill the frame.

You want to shoot with as wide an aperture as you can. Unfortunately most lenses are not at their sharpest wide open. Also, the 18-55mm lens doesn't open up all that wide, f/3.5 at 18mm and f/5.6 at 55mm. To get the widest aperture, you can shoot in the P or A modes. If you don't want to leave the point&shoot modes, try using the Portrait mode.

Since you're not paying for film, I suggest you experiment with the different settings and shooting setups, moving closer and farther from the subject, using different focal lengths, and using different apertures, and see what results you get.

I am using a Tamron AF 18 - 250 mm lens on a nikon d90 and some times on auto focus F---- is displayed and i cannot take a photo. Is this something to do with the match of lens to camera ?


Make sure the lens is set for the largest f number on the aperture ring. there may be a lock to prevent the ring from turning in the future. Locking the lens of the largest f number allow the camera to set the lens through the camera. This is normal on most of the newer cameras.

If the lens does not have a move-able aperture ring, then dismount and remount the lens, making sure the lens is completely mounted and locks into place, completely lining up the contacts inside. If this does not work The camera or lens may need servicing.

Aperture not going below 6


There is no problem. The lens is f/3.5-6.3. That means that at 200mm the maximum aperture is f/6.3. At long focal lengths you will not be able to open up beyond f/6 or so. At the short end, at 18mm the maximum aperture is f/3.5.

Tamron has identified this problem with the Canon. See link: http://www.tamron.com/about/updates_canon.asp, but I am not sure about your Nikon.
