Re: Cannot shoot picture

The mode switch (off/play/record) is a weak point on many digital cameras. It is likely that yours needed to be replaced.

How do I use the quick shot mode?

This is the right camera behavior. In this mode you use the screen to adjust the settings and use the viewfinder for shooting.

1. READ YOUR CAMERA MANUAL before taking any photographs.
2. Check your batteries. Make sure to either recharge or replace them if you haven't used your camera as yet or for an extended period.
3. Insert your storage media card in the appropriate slot. If you forget to insert your media card, you'll get a "No Card" message.
4. Remove the lens cap.
5. Turn the camera on by either an on-off switch or a sliding lens cover.
6. Turn off the LCD. (See your camera manual for instructions)
7. Make sure your camera is set for automatic mode. Set the image quality to the size image desired-HQ (high quality) or less (to take more pictures on the same card).
8. Bring the camera up to your eye and look through the viewfinder. Positioning the target mark in the center of the viewfinder on your subject will assure that it will be in focus.
9. Push the zoom lever toward W (wide angle) to shoot wide-angle shots or push it toward the T (telephoto) to zoom in.
10. Press the shutter button half way down gently and confirm that the green light next to the viewfinder is illuminated.
11. Press the shutter button all the way down. You'll hear a beep when you take a picture. Wait until the green light stops flashing before taking another one. Remember, digital cameras have a slight delay that traditional cameras don't since it takes a second to save the image to your camera's storage media card.
12. Turn off the camera. Your new photograph should appear on your camera's LCD screen.
1. Use the viewfinder to compose your photograph, not the LCD screen, which will severely drain your battery power. Use your LCD screen only when shooting close-up photographs.
2. Hold your camera steady. Sometimes, the least amount of movement will cause your photo to be slightly blurred. Purchase a very small tripod so that you can provide extra stability for your camera. Also, if there isn't enough light (indoors or outdoors), make sure to use your camera's flash.
3. Experiment with your camera's features and take notes so that you can learn what works for you. Do this before you plan to use it for an important family event or trip.

How do i use the burst mode on my nikon d3000? Thank you.

Press the Info button to bring up the Information display. Press the <i> button to place the cursor in the information display. Highlight the current release mode and press OK. Select the Continuous mode and press OK.

This lets you shoot at up to about three frames a second, depending on the shutter speed, noise reduction settings, and autofocus settings. You cannot use this with the flash.

The camera will shoot pictures as long as you hold down the shutter release button (until the buffer and/or memory card fills up). As you shoot, the viewfinder will show rNN where NN is the approximate number of further pictures you can shoot until the buffer fills up. In JPEG mode you should be able to take a hundred pictures before the buffer fills. The number will be smaller in RAW.

In AF-S and AF-A, the camera will not shoot the next picture until focus is acquired, so when shooting moving subjects or panning the camera, you may not get full speed. Even in AF-C, the camera may "hiccup" occasionally.

Camera screen remains black when I turn on shooting mode

Turn the camera on. With the screen showing, press the DISP button and this will give you a selection of different screen views i.e. squares for aligning shot squarely; black - thru viewfinder only; etc. Different modes will give you different screen displays i.e. P setting screens are different to when you have the camera set on AUTO.

Hope this helps.

Monitor does not show images in focus

Impossible. The D80 is an SLR which means there is a real shutter curtain blocking the imaging array, essentially 'blindfolding' the array.It cannot see the image until the shutter is opened. Nikon just introduced a new SLR that can do live view mode, if you want to spend a couple of grand.

When take photos it looks in focus through the viewfinder, but the pictures come out slightly out of focus

I'm not sure what camera you are using. But I believe you are taking pictures like the old Kodak Instamatic which you just literally point and shoot. Even then people took blurred pictures. There are 2 reasons I can guess. First is you are pressing the shutter button too fast. When you press the shutter, it should be like squeezing the trigger of a gun. You SQUEEZE slowly. Not press the button and let go. After you hear the camera has done all the sound it wants to make that means you picture is being recorded. And hopefully it will be clear. If it still isn't then it means your camera take a little bit longer to focus on the subject. That's what happened to my wife. She thinks she can point and shoot and that's it. You need to camera a few seconds to focus. I know the Casio's have a little beeping sound that tells you it has focused and is ready to shoot. My Konica Minolta does the same but I see a box on the screen (I took the sound out). You need to listen for that tone that tells you you camera has focused on a spot and is ready to shoot. In order for the camera to do this you need to press the shutter only half way. When you hear the tone then slowly press all the way and don't move till all the clicks are done. That's usually 0.5-1.5seconds only. Hope this helps.

Camera not taking pictures

The camera may be trying to tell you that your flash is turned off in Auto mode, but to get a proper exposure you will need the flash turned on. Try turning the flash on and see if that works.

Hope this helps!

Nikon D50 LCD Display does not work

NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
