Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

D100 shooting problems

I am very new to photography and have not even had the chance to read through my manual well and there is probally an easy solution to my problem:
When i try to take a piture, with or without my flash on, it will take, i hear the shutter and the flash goes off, but when i go to look at the photo it is black, and yes the lens cap is off. I am confused and frustrated and am hoping i just pushed a funny button. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!

Can you report what the dial and menu settings are?

My best assessment would be that the dial setting is on something other than Auto, like Manual, and the Aperture and/or shutter speed are way off. Flip it to Auto and take another shot. Report back.

Err is usually a camera malfunctrion. Re,ove the batery,a aaaaaatuen camera switch off/on 2-3 times *as if battery still in), replace battery and try again. Read Owners manual or got to Nikonusa.com to download a manual (or to ask Nikon) and determine if your D100 has a hardware reset switch(my dc70 does) and utilize that. If tht does not solve the issue, then service by an authorized Nikon tech is advised.

Nikon ISO D100


Sounds like you are set in ISO AUTO. This will change your ISO when you are in light that is low enough to give underexposure. In most of the shooting modes, the D100 will change shutter and/or aperature to prevent underexposure, but if it can't avoid the underexposure, it will change the ISO to correct the underexposure.

It also sounds like you have a low light shooting situation. The blur you see is likely from the long exposure, which is pretty hard to hand hold. Noise in the picture would be from the high ISO, but if it's a noise problem you probably don't have blur.

Avoiding the blur is best done with a tripod or a shutter speed of at most 1/60. If you can't get a good exposure at 1/60 or faster, then try the tripod. If you can't use a tripod, then let the ISO (in auto) go up to 1600 and then remove the noise with photoshop or another photo editor. You'll have to play around with the noise reduction settings to get one that works for you.

The key to low light photos is to make sure you get an exposure that isn't blurred, even if you have to use a high ISO. It's easy to remove the noise in software, but blurry photos can't be fixed.

Do not seem to have it set up correctly, very slow shutter speed. Just bought the camera.


The D100 was the first SLR digital camera that Nikon made. In its day it was awesome, top of the line technology. Today, it's hard to even find them for sale because they are so old. I have a D100 and it is a great camera but you have to be patient with it - it is a grandfather now. It is slow. It is a fantastic camera and you can still shoot great action shots but you have to use a bit more planning then you would on a more new camera. Just be patient with it and treat it with care and it will produce images you will love and be proud of.

THE D100 REFUSED TO SHOOT THE PAINTING IN THE INSERTED IMAGE. CAMERA IN ALL OTHER RESPECTS WORKING FINE. TRIED ALL MODES.


When you say you tried full manual, I just wanted to check that you also switched to manual focus? The D100 has a switch on the right side of the lens, says M, S, C, for manual, single, or continuous focus? You need that in M with a painting like that, or to should truly diffuse subjects like clouds or fog.

The reason it works fine with only part of the painting in frame is that the camera can then identify and focus on the edge of the painting. It could also focus on any painting with linear or sharp detail. Autofocus is rather clever, but not clever enough!

If you had indeed set manual focus, then I admit I'm stumped. Full manual mode with manual focus never refuses to trigger the shutter on my D70; although it does often take pictures I don't understand at first. :) Good luck -- let us know what you find out, please!

Continous shooting with D100 - it doesn't work...


Mine too. It's a worn-out selector switch. Jiggle it and it'll work again. Time delay same. Our college has four Nikon D100s with this problem. Poor switch contacts.
