What would cause auto mode to start producing dark pictures?


This has been showing up in the autofocus mode of Nikon DSLRs of all flavors for years. There's some indication it may be due to an underlubricated gear causing the shutter to fire at a faster speed than indicated, but most of the evidence seems to point to a random glitch in the firmware.

I have a Nikon D40 and when it's in M and S mode the shutter stays open for too long and my pictures come out completely white.


What shutter speed(s) are you using? What happens when you use a faster shutter speed? In the S and M modes you are responsible for setting the shutter speed, and you can set it to anything within the camera's range.

Solution for blur camera nikon d5000 when take pickture at night time


It may be your exposure combination. The blur is because your shutter speed is too slow. You did not say what you are photographing at night and without that information, I can only speak in generalities. It all depends on the light source. If you are taking pictures of illuminated signs, auto exposure modes might work great, but if you are shooting incident light rather than pointing your camera at the light source, I would use a tripod and use manual exposure. Adjust your ISO to a high number. That will allow a faster shutter speed to stop motion.

Assistance in using the P for taking pictures How do you use the dials to determine a good picture.


The settings depend on what you're trying to say with the picture. You probably wouldn't want the same settings for a portrait as you would for a landscape. Two photographers at the same place and time with identical cameras probably wouldn't use the same settings, as each photographer has his/her personal style.
In the Program mode the camera select the shutter speed and aperture it deems optimal. You can turn the command dial to adjust the exposure, increasing the shutter speed and opening up the aperture, or decreasing the shutter speed and closing down the aperture by turning it the other way. Either way, the exposure itself remains the same.
If you're taking a landscape picture, you'd probably want a small aperture to get the maximum depth of field. If you're taking a portrait, you'd probably want a large aperture to blur the background. If you're taking an action picture, you'd probably want a fast shutter speed to capture the action. Of course, those are just guidelines. Sometimes you want to blur the action, or throw some portion of the picture out of focus. It's up to you. You use the settings to take YOUR picture.

Shutter stays open


According to what you say, it seems that you selected B (Bulb) as shutter speed (and MANUAL mode).

First, check whether you are on MANUAL mode ("M"); then, check your shutter speed. If it's really in "bulb" mode, all you have to do is dialing the speed button down to figures that match your subject's light conditions and your other preferences involved in the exposure (ISO, lens apperture).

In S mode camera wont take a pic, r09 comes on screen


The r09 is just the display that tells you how many pictures you have in the memory buffer for shooting in continuous mode. There are a few reasons why it might not take a pic in S, but normally it's when it's not in focus. Maybe you have it pointed at something too close for the lens to focus. It also could be that your shutter speed setting is way too fast for the available light.

In S mode, the camera will use your shutter speed setting and adjust the aperature to match the light. If it can't get enough light at the shutter speed set, then it won't expose. Keep in mind this isn't just for exposures that are close to being right, only when the shutter speed is so fast or slow that the exposure isn't in the ballpark.

Try moving your shutter speed up or down.

How do i set the shitter speed on a nikon d60???


First port of call would be read the manual. You can usually download them from various websites in PDF form.

Shutter speed can be adjusted in the 'TV' mode and 'Manual' using the selector wheel.

All white pic is shown on LCD when used in Manual Mode with delayed shutter timer


You are massively overexposing the picture. Manual mode means you have to set the exposure manually. You need to adjust the settings so that the light meter reads somewhere around the zero mark.

M mode is most useful for flash photography where you want a certain level of ambient illumination in the picture as well.

If you want some control over the camera but don't want to worry about exposure too much, use A and S modes. The manual will explain all of these modes.

Pictures too dark


The settings in Auto Mode are factory set. If you want to adjust exposure and shutter speeds then you will have to shoot in Manual Mode (TV=Shutter Priority, AV=Aperture Priority, M=Full Manual)
