Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
It seems like my camera is having trouble registering light. When looking through the viewfinder with a lens attatched, everything looks really dark. I can take pictures in manual mode, but it refuses to do focus or take pictures in autofocus mode. I have a normal 18mm - 55mm lens and a 70mm - 300mm lens. When the lenses are removed and i look through the viewfinder, it is obviously blurry, but it is bright. When I look through either of the lenses, I can see brightness as well. But when I attatch the lens to the camera, everything is dark. I have no idea what is wrong.
That would explain the darkness if the lens is stopped down. It would seem the aperture control is faulty on the camera body. Normally, the aperture remains open until you take the picture. It is only closed down while the shutter is open.
