    I am using a d5000 with a new Tamron 60mm f/2.0. In Aperture 3 , my other lenses show the lens as the manufacturer describes.....but with my NEW lens, all I get is the focal length?

  • beck1117 May 10, 2010

    I understand. tahnks. But I have a tamron 17-50 that is 3 yrs old that works perfectly. My brand new Tamron 60 doesn't report the lens info???? I just had a hard time believing that and thought I could fix it somehow.

    You have been helpful....thanks !!!!!

    Do you have any other software that shows you the EXIF data? It may be there under another tag. Unfortunately I don't have any Tamron lenses so I can't do much investigating.

  • kakima May 11, 2010

    Bear in mind that the camera has to get the information from somewhere. It may be that the Tamron simply does not inform the camera of anything beyond the focal length.

    I have some Nikon lenses that don't report even that much to my Nikon D90.

  • kakima May 11, 2010

    What lens(es)? Many digital cameras work with lenses that were built before the EXIF standard existed.

    Or are you saying that Aperture doesn't show some EXIF info that some other software does?

Pictures coming out completely black?


So???
Is the shutter opening? Put it on slow shutter speed and wide aperture say 1 sec at f4 or wider and look down the lens as you take photo. At some point you should see the sensor as the aperture is nearly fully open. If not then it isn't allowing light to get to the sensor, but if that's all working ok (and I assume you've looked at the photos on a computer and checked they are on the card and the exif info is sensible and they are still completely black) then you have a faulty sensor or processor. Remove battery reinsert and go into menu and reset the camera settings. Report back so???

Bought cheap extention tubes, now camera wont recognize the lens. How do I use them


Set the exposure mode to "M" (Manual). You'll have to set both the aperture and shutter speed yourself.

You'll also get no exposure assistance from the camera's light meter. You can review the picture after taking one and/or use the histogram to tune the exposure.

What's the aperture in a 3G mobile lens?


The aperture of a lens system is the opening between the actual lens elements, typically made of glass or plastic, and the camera's digital sensor that translates the light into image data. Aperture openings are referred to in terms of stops or f-stops that equate to the ratio of the lens focal length to the diameter of the opening. A lens system with a focal length of 50mm and an aperture opening that is 25mm in diameter would equate to an f-stop of 2, and would be known as a 50mm f2 lens. Some lenses have variable apertures that can be set to one of multiple f-stop values. Reducing the aperture size decreases the amount of light that makes it to the sensor as well as increases the amount of depth of field that the lens will provide.

How do i turn on date/timstamp on the Kodak easyshare C142 camera?


You cannot do this with your camera, sorry. Click here for a free download of the advanced user manual, courtesy of Kodak.

Note that although the images themselves cannot be overprinted with a date and time stamp by your camera, the information is still there in the EXIF data of each image file. On your pc, right click (if using Windows) on any picture and select "properties" from the menu. You'll then see various data including the time and date, the camera model, and with many cameras you'll also see details of the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, flash mode, lens zoom setting etc. EXIF data will also usually indicate when the image was last edited.

Please take a moment to rate my answer.

F8 aperture


You are able to shoot at F8 by opening the lens barrier and sliding the macro switch to the Macro mode. This provides a mechanical aperture of F8. We recommend the use of this setting either when shooting close up images or when shooting images in a very brightly lit scene. Unfortunately, because the aperture is mechanical, the EXIF information is not recorded. Therefore, you can not see whether you photographed an image in the Macro mode or if the aperture has been changed. However, you can physically see the aperture close down by looking at the lens with a magnifying glass or loupe when turning the sliding the macro switch to the Macro mode.
