My Nikon coolpix l820 the screen doesn't work on camera setting but does on the video camera setting


hi,
when the still camera works the shutter of the aperture and iris is opening for a limited time, if it opens without limit the excess light will enter in and the result will be blurry picture, if the shutter is not opening the picture will be dark. in movie mode the shutter will be always in opened state, so I think there may be fault in shutter.
in some cases a slight jerk giving to cam when you depressing the snap button will reset the shutter and will work normally.

Why does my Cannon 600D Shutter stays open and doesn't work


maybee you are shooting the camera at very low shutter speed try to check the shutter speed first . if this does not resolve the problem you may need to drop the camera and the nearest service center and have you curtain checked . you might have reached the maximum shutter count and this needs replacment

I have heard that Digital cameras have a limited life time on how much you can take pictures. I have a Canon 550D. Is it true that there is a certain ammount on how much you can take pictures and then it...


Any mechanical device will eventually wear out, and a DSLR has many moving parts. The shutter and the mirror mechanism are prime examples, but in addition there are buttons and dials.

There's nothing in the camera keeping track of the date or number of pictures and then stopping operation when some limit is reached. In normal operation, the camera should be good for years and/or tens (or hundreds) of thousands of pictures.

How can i set aperture and shutter speed at P mode? i scroll the command dial but all that comes in is P and P*


Once you're in the P mode, turning the command dial will change the shutter speed and aperture in opposite directions to maintain the same exposure (within the limits of the camera and the lens). You should see the shutter speed in the viewfinder change.

If you want absolute control of the shutter speed, change to the S mode. The command dial will then allow you to control the shutter speed, and the camera will automatically change the aperture to compensate (again, within the limits of the lens).

I took a picture in the s mode or any mode messing with the shutter speed and when i go to view the picture i just get a black screen.....i am not sure why this is happening....any thoughts?


Proper exposure is a balancing act between the shutter speed and the aperture (the size of the opening in the lens). (There's also the ISO sensitivity, but I'll ignore that for now.) If the shutter is open for a longer time, the lens must be closed down. If the shutter is open for a shorter time, the lens must be opened up wider to allow the same amount of light to reach the sensor.

The Shutter priority mode attempts to adjust the aperture to give the proper exposure for the shutter speed you've selected. The lens has physical limits as to how wide the opening can be. If the shutter speed is too fast, the lens will only open as far as it can go but that may not be enough. In this case the camera will display "Lo" in the viewfinder to warn you but will go ahead and take the picture anyway. If the shutter speed is too fast then you won't get enough light through the lens and you'll end up with a dark or black picture.

Try reducing the shutter speed (leaving it open for a longer time), like 1/30 of a second instead of 1/125 of a second. If the shutter is open too long, you run the risk of camera motion. You can also increase the ISO setting, making the sensor more sensitive to light. This increases digital noise, which looks somewhat like film grain. You can also try adding more light, perhaps by using the flash, if the subject isn't too far from the camera.

When I try to take a photo it says error 99


ERROR 99 is an indication that there is a communication problem in the camera. It is most often an indication that the shutter needs to be replaced, but it can be the result of other problems. All digital cameras occasionally need to have the shutters replaced. In the days of film cameras, it was rare to wear out a shutter because the cost of film and developing limited the number of times the shutter was cycled. With all those ones and zeros being considered "free" in digital cameras, it is not uncommon to take several hundred or more photos in a day. Even with a live-expectancy of 50.000 to 100,000 cycles, the shutters in digital cameras do reach the end of their life and need to be replaced.

I know it sounds expensive but at least you know Canon will fix it properly with a limited warranty on the repair. Remember, they have to take the camera completely apart to reach that part. If you're interested in seeing how complicated it is, google the words...disassemble a digital camera.

Error 99 message keeps popping up


Hi

I just read that the error 99 problem is a shutter failure and the shutter will have to be fixed. The cost is about $180.

ERR99 (error 99) is an indication that there is a communication problem in the camera. It is most often an indication that the shutter needs to be replaced, but it can be the result of other problems. All digital cameras occasionally need to have the shutters replaced.

Shutter replacement (usually associated with error code "99"):
  • Replacing the shutter on the Digital Rebel series requires more disassembly than most other repairs.
  • The estimate for shutter replacement is $180 on all EOS Digital Rebel models (depending upon the overall condition of the camera).
  • ERR99 error codes are related to shutter or mirror operation and are usually associated with a defective shutter. Cameras that have had heavy use may have shutters that have reached life expectancy and need to be replaced.

I am unable to get the shutter speed above 1/60 on our D200. It was working fine. Is there some setting in the camera that would limit shutter speed even with flash?


The flash is probably what's limiting your shutter speed. All cameras have a maximum shutter speed that syncronizes with the flash.
