Question about Nikon Cameras

2 Answers

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any suggestions on how to get it back to it's original settings and working again - oh yeah - can't seem to get live view to come up /work either. Not sure if I've purchased a dud or what? Wade

    Think I have a possible solution to the problem with it taking pictures - but can't understand why I can't get the big screen on the back to work when I press LV - like it is supposed to.
    can you fill me in?

The r codes you mention are related to speeds of buffering information onto the memory card. A high ISO NR setting on the camera has a huge impact.... the cross over point is 800 ISO. If you have it on, and are on 800 or over, the remaining buffer can drop by multiples. This can cause the operation speed to drop considerably. As a first measure I would advise that you make sure the ISO is set to 800 or less.

Do this and let me know what effect that has on the problem. We can continue troubleshooting from there.

    You can restore the camera to default values easily by using a two button reset. This will restore most of the settings to factory values i.e just the same as when you bought the camera.



    To do this hold the +/- button and the AF button down together for more than 2 seconds. These buttons are marked with a green dot. The control panel will turn off briefly while settings are reset. Do this also and let me know if the screen has reset and is operating now.

    My final suggestion which is indicated by the flashing f and black screen that you are experiencing is that this is often caused when the lens is not properly locked in. Double check that the mechanism is properly secured by removing and then refitting the lense and ensure that it is tight to the camera body.



    Hope this helps and please rate my answer accordingly.



    Many Thanks.

I experienced that a couple of times. Usually, what I do to resolve it is :

1. Turn off the camera
2. Zoom out your kit lens all the way out and in. Do this at least twice.
3. Turn on your camera again

If I'm not mistaken, this is one of the known issue in D90. It happens, when you set your camera/lens to AF, and if you nudge the Manual focus while the camera is still turned on.

Let me know if this works out for ya :-)

Nikno D90 there is a long delay when I try to take a picture


You must check the shutter speed before actually pressing shutter button completely if it is fast or slow.

I have a nikon d90,when i pressed shutter button ,it is giving err message then i press second time it is not giving err message but not taking the photo.


This is an indication that the camera is not "talking" to the lens correctly. When you press the shutter button, the camera tries to focus, set light levels, and then shoot the picture. If it can't focus or set F-stop and shutter speed, then it can't shoot the picture and gives you the error indication. SO
1. You need to make sure the lens is an automatic lens capable of working with the D90. 2. You can take the lens off and back onto the camera a few times in case its a dirty contact issue or just didn't seat correctly. 3. Set the D90 to manual and make sure you move the AF selector on the front to M. Then you would manually adjust all the settings. That should take the auto-coupling out of the picture (pun intended)
4. If it still shows error when in total manual mode, there may be something wrong in the camera itself. Before giving up, do a total system reset on the D90 (I assume you have the manual).

I bought a Nikon D90 a few weeks ago. It worked


Your camera may be faulty. Or you might not be "in focus". The D90 in any of the auto modes won't take a picture if the 'in-focus indicator' isn't on. If that indicator is blinking, then it means that it is not able to focus on the subject. It's all in the user manual.

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"


You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

I have selected the continuous high and low speed modes option but my Nikon D90 still only takes 1 photo at a time. Any ideas?


There is a memory card loaded and you are holding down the shutter release, right?

Do you have the delayed release mode turned on? What's your shutter speed? What're your AF settings?

SB flash does not synk with d90


Are you waiting for the flash to be ready before you fire the first photo?
What shutter speed are you using? Are you trying to sync at too high a shutter speed?

Slow Shutter Speed on Nikon D90


I suggest that you try a system reset for your camera and then complete the following adjustments to see if your camera will respond like it did originally.

Nikon D90 green reset dots. Press at the same time to reset.
Nikon has an easy reset feature. I use it every time I pick up a D90.
My standard operating setting is only a few clicks different from the reset defaults.
I reset everything every time I use my camera, much as a pilot uses a checklist before every flight to prevent any switches from being in the wrong position. When I don't check first, I often have left my D90 in some screwy mode, like 2,500K WB and ISO 3,200, from shooting in the dark the night before.
My checklist is therefore Reset, Program, Basic, Medium, and A3. Allow me to explain:
1.) Reset: Hold down the +/- and AF buttons (next to the green dots) for a few seconds, and the D90 comes out of whatever crazy mode it was in and returns to sanity. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.
Reset leaves the detailed menu tweaks alone and resets only the big dumb things I might have changed overnight.
Once Reset, I change these next:
2.) Program: Spin the top left exposure mode dial to P, program auto exposure.
3.) Hold QUAL and spin the rear dial until you see BASIC, and spin the front dial until you see [M]. You'll always see these on the small top LCD, and if you first tap INFO, you can see it more clearly on the huge rear LCD. (Feel free to use other settings if you have a good reason.)
4.) Hold the WB button and spin the front dial three clicks to A3. This gives warmer (more orange) photos that I prefer.

Good luck and happy shooting! I have a D80 and would love to get my hands on the new D90. Make sure you also buy a quality filter for your lens UV0. The quality of the lens is just as important as the body it's attached to.

Nikon D90 Self-Timer does not work when flash is engaged.


The answer to your question can be found at...

This website

All but the very best flashes can not recycle atthat flash rate. For burst mode, you probably want to use focus modeAF-C or AF-A.
Morris

Page 73 in the manual; If the flash fires in L or H mode (pg. 65), only one picture will be taken each time the
shutter-release button is pressed. The shutterrelease may be briefly disabled to protect the flash after it has beenused for several consecutive shots. The flash can be used again after ashort pause.
The flash can take several seconds to recharge andduring that time the shutter is disabled. NR will also reduce thenumber of frames per second that you can take, and of course yourshutter speed has to be fast enough to allow for 4.5 fps.
In AF-S the shutter won’t fire unless the camera has achieved an in-focus state and the focus is locked.
In AF-C the camera continually focuses, but that isnot the same thing as being in focus. As you move the camera or yoursubject moves, the in focus state will come and go, but the camera willattempt to continuously re-focus. BUT, the shutter will fire even ifwhen the AF system has lost the in-focus state and the picture is outof focus.
In the D90 manual it indicates that the AF-A modewill only fire when the green in-focus light is on, just like in AF-S.The problem is that you probably won’t get 4.5 fps unless both thecamera and the subject are stationary and no time is lost between shotswhile the camera re-focuses.
