The double image is caused by the most common killer-fault on almost all binoculars: the yoke assembly which the eyepieces is mounted on has either bent or broken.

The only fix is to replace the yoke assembly: unbending it is not accurate enough and usually breaks it, gluing is no good as the contact surfaces are far too small for the adhesive to carry the mechanical loads, and usually results in a yoke which still needs unbending...

It's not a cheap fix and is only worth doing on really expensive models: given that you can buy the same pair again for less than £60 in the USA and around £100 in the UK then it's a no-brainer as the new model will cost far less than the repairs.

Sorry to disappoint you, but some faults just cannot be economically repaired. I hope that my answer has still been of use to you and that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Can't viewb the LCD screen when shooting a picture! it's just black


The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, showing the image in the viewfinder until you press the shutter. The LiveView feature which shows the image on the LCD screen is a rather recent development on DSLRs, unlike on point&shoot cameras. The D60 does not have this capability, which Nikon introduced with the D3 and D300.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I dropped my Nikon Action Lookout III binoculars, ...


The same happened to my Mizar 10X25 I tried things like moving the front lenses but then I discovered that most probably the binoculars fell on one of the four corners, this caused the tubes' direction to be twisted. It could be that the left is pointing slightly down or the right is pointing slightly up, which is essentially the same, and which is what happened to mine. You can discover this miss-alignment by watching using both eyes and then close and open one of them the phantom image will appear and disappear. What you have to do is apply a force with your hands twisting the binoculars one tube up and the other down and hold where you can see clear, I just discovered this and it works, I think I should be able to re-align them again, but I haven't faund how to do so. If you find a different solution please let me know here: gregsoli@yahoo.com

Nikon action fieldmaster 12x50 when focused objects image doubles


There are several reasons why they could be out. First check to see that the front extension that hold the objectives are still square. Set them on a table and see if both front ends sit flat. One side might be "cocked" in the thread. If not then it is internal which will require a strip down and rebuild by someone who knows what they are doing.

Camera RAW and PhotoShop CS3


To start, before building an action or a droplet to convert from Raw, you need at least either the RAW plugin, or the photoshop lightroom plugin, depending on the version of Photoshop. I assume you have the plugin installed on your Photoshop. See: Adobe - Adobe Photoshop CS4: Digital camera raw file support.

A better choice would be having the Nikon Capture NX , that give you the option to work on the native RAW format from Nikon.

Once you have installed a plugin to manage RAW format files you can record an action or droplet to automate the process. If youj want more automation, you set an action first, as a batch process to do action on a single file, then build a droplet on the action batch file. A droplet will give more automation, since droplets can be activated by dropping a folder of images onto that specific Droplet Process, and they will apply the batch process to all the files contained in the folder.

The way you build the batch action depends much on the version of Photoshop you are using and on the plugin used. Here an example using Adobe PS CS2 and camera Raw plugin: Raw Format Workflow with Adobe Bridge .

The action can be saved using the recorder, so that the procedure will de quite instinctive. See the tutorials below for step-by-step instructions.

My new Nikon D700 is loading double images...two images of the same on the memory card...it takes up twice the space and i have to selct every other picture when uploading them into my Mac.


Sounds like you have it set on Bracketing. Go into your menu setting and turn off Bracketing.

Or you might be on NEF and JPG mode, taking a NEF and a JPG with each shot. Review the read-out on the top of the camera to see if it shows that. It it does go to QUAL on top of camera and change the setting to show one image, either NEF (RAW) or JPG.

One of those should fix ya.

Nikon Coolpix L11 - LCD screen shows double image


It could be a loose LCD connection carefully take off the back and lift the LCD very carfully you will see the ribbon cable lift the tab take out the LCD and reinsert it and push the tab back down. If this does not fix it you might have a damaged main board its one or the other.

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh


RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.
