Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

2 Answers

Telephoto lens takes pictures with jagged pixel-blocky edges.

I tried out my old Nikkor 70 mm zoom lens (non-digital) on my new D40x set it to manual, and selected RAW rather than JPEG file setting. I uploaded my pix into 'Pictureproject' but they all came out jagged-edged and half-resolved as though only half-uploaded in appearance. Is it the lens? The RAW form of file?
Thanks.

    My Nikon D40X will accept the older Nikon lenses but will not meter or auto-focus. In other words, Manually only. It looks like the RAW setting was the problem. The telephoto uploaded pix worked fine in JPEG setting.
    Thanks, all for help. Great site.

Yes, I used an old Vivitar 400mm f5.6 the same way on my D100. I got some great shots during field hockey last fall.

    Siberian,

    Your D40 has no lens motor on body(remove lens & look at around 5 O'Clock).
    RAW needs lens from DX. All Nikon lens with coupler for camera motor will not work.

    This cut cost down for Nikon.

When I am at 10mm I can not take a picture. I have to move the lens to 12 mm, why is that?


What are the other settings? It could be that you are in "auto" and the camera is not getting an autofocus lock. Try having the camera in one of the manual settings.

My Nikon D40x will not always take a picture when I push the shutter and will not focus whats wrong with it?


I have the same problem and I make this: take out the zoom lens from the body and put it again. The auto-focus comes back. Another my solution: Push autofocus buton to M (manual) and back to A (auto). Then sometimes starts again to work autofocus. But still I know it is not final solution...

Does the nikon nikkor af 70-210mm telephoto lens fit on a nikon d3000?


Yes. The smaller sensor of the D3000 will make it the equivalent of about a 105-315mm lens on a 35mm film or full-frame digital camera. Also, the autofocus will not work with the D3000.

How fix the back focus of Nikon AF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G? unable to focus whatever adjust made from the lens.


Hello marion.... Rutn the camera on and open up the menu. Find the reset function and reset the camera. All that does is reset it to the factory settings, the settings it had when you first took it out of the box. In most instances this will fix the problem. If it does, great. If not, take it or send it into a Nikon repair shop. Opening it up your self will void the warranty. Joe

thanks for choosing Fixya!

I want to use fairly telephoto lens in D3 slr nikon camera


You don't say what sort of telephoto you want to buy or how much money you want to spend but basically anything longer than a 50 mm is regarded as telephoto.
A staring point for you maybe the lens listed below: Nikon Telephoto Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR
It importantly has VR or "Vibration Reduction" on it to reduce camera blur when hand holding telephoto shots. This is just a staring point... You need to work out what you want to photograph Cheers Ian

Old Lense and new camera


Here is a link to the lens limitations of the D40, same for the D40X:
http://www.popphoto.com/photonews/3543/update-to-nikon-d40-hands-on.html

The camera will not recognize the lens but you can take pictures setting speed and aperture manually. Since you see results after you take the picture, you can make adjustments to correct your exposure
