The sport setting uses a faster shutter speed to stop motion. However, if you have the ISO set to a low number and try to take action shots in dim light, they will be blurry. Either use auto ISO or use a higher number such as 400 or 800.

My Nikon D80 won't shoot multiple pictures when in sports mode.


Please read page 36 in the D80 manual. What you are looking for is just down from the top, "Continous".

What should I set the Nikon D80 on to take basketball pictures? when I put it on the lowest aperage I still have a little blurring. On auto it is too dark and when I put it on shutter speed it was also too...


I take it you're shooting indoors?

To get the fastest possible shutter speed, use the Aperture-priority (A) mode and turn the sub-command dial on the front counterclockwise until the numbers stop changing. This sets the lens at its widest aperture.

Even at your lens's widest aperture, the shutter speed will usualy be too slow to freeze the action. You can ease the situation a little by increasing the ISO, though this will result in additional noise. Personally, I'd prefer a noisy picture over a blurry picture.

If the action is close enough, you can use your flash (assuming it's permitted).

Adding lights to the gym is probably out of the question :-(

Other than that, about the only thing you can do is to use a faster lens. But then you're talking $2000 for a stop or two. That's one (or 2000) of the things that separates the _Sports Illustrated_ photographers from the rest of us.

I have the Nikon D60 - Ive taken sport/action pictures


The main difference between the two shooting conditions is the amount of light you have to work with. For the indoor action shots, set the ISO setting to the highest available through the menu (1600 ISO) to maximize the ability of the camera to work with the diminished light. The other (but more expensive) way to achieve better indoor shots is with the use of a "faster" lens, ie one with a lower maximum f stop number (f2.8 is faster than f3.5, for instance). Also ensure you are shooting with your lens at its widest f stop setting (lowest number).

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area...


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.

The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This may not necessarily be an error.. just a setting that you have put in place in your menu.

Nikon D80-picture blurry in auto mode


jbenjack,
The D80 has a lot more settings to deal with and depending on the lens the depth of field may explain the blurry background (that is desired effect on a portrait) The view finder on the D80 is for composing the shot and has read outs for the settings. The LCD on the back is for playback and the menus, it doesn't work like a live view of what's being taken (on some newer and more expensive DSLRs it does preview on the big LCD) on smaller point & Shoot cameras that don't have a viewfinder they use the LCD as the viewfinder, does that make sense? If she has the manual you may want to faniliarize yourself with some of the features, start out on one at a time for the different modes so they make more sense, you can really appriciate the camera after that and respect what pro photographers do. The D80 is not a cheap camera and I personally know a couple of professionals that use it among their cameras. (lots of different lenses that cost many time more than the camera body) Have fun with it, and if you get into it you will find you can take some fantastic photos with it. Can you tell that I like that camera?

Hi and welcome to FixYa.

I could go into a long disertation about your camera settings and what you should use, but I should let Ken explain it. I read this a couple of months ago (because I love photography too)! He has some good ideas, tips, tricks and really has the D80 dialed in. You can read it here.
