Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

I have two problems. I have somehow locked the settings and the unit is showing the "M" over Zoom. The unit is therefore not in sync with the focal length of the lenses being used.

First off I need to know the make and model of the unit so I can assist you further. It sounds like you have it in manual zoom mode. Once you give me the make and model I will be able to give you a solution.
Thank you,
Lee

    Hi,
    You can view the manual at this link. If you refer to page 42/132 it explains the different modes. right now you have it in manual mode. You can change it to the correct mode depending on your camera.
    Thank you,
    Lee

Zoom and aperture problem


What lens do you have on the camera? Many zoom lenses have a variable maximum aperture. This means that the maximum aperture varies depending on the focal length. If you set the lens to its maximum aperture and then zoom, the aperture may change.

Focus out problem in canon 50d while using 24-70mm lens?


If by a "normal" lens, you mean a 35mm or 50mm fixed focal length - often called "prime" lens, that is to be expected. The additional and internal rotating optical elements all contribute to loss of clarity, color loss, and increased chromatic aberration that starts to become noticeable when compared to use of a prime lens. It's a trade off; less number of lenses to carry and lower cost when using wide angle zoom lenses as opposed to a prime lens for even just a few of the focal lengths offered by the wide angle zoom types.

You can minimize the unwanted effects by staying away from both the extreme wide angle and zoom focal lengths as well as the widest aperture settings. If you can stay 2 or 3 stops smaller from wide open, you can limit these destractions from your pictures. This is recommended advice for nearly every lens: Keep away from the extremes.

Good luck!

What is 55-200mm?


That's the focal range of a zoom lens. Unlike a single focal-length lens (or a "prime" lens) a zoom lens lets you adjust the focal range. "55-200mm" specifies the lens's focal range from 55mm at the low end to 200mm at the long end.

You can read a general description of zoom lenses at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoom_lens

Nikon current has two different 55-200mm lenses:

If you're asking about the L110, it has a permanently-affixed lens and will not use either of the above lenses.

When I taked a photo in the "zoom" mode, it comes out blurry. Any thoughts on what the problem might be?


First, determine if you are moving while you press the shutter. This is more of a problem in zoom than at other focal lengths. Set the camera on a firm surface, zoom out, press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then press the rest of the way. Is the picture clear? If so, then you are the cause of the blur.

How can you test a camera before use to be sure the flash sync is working properly.


Set camera up and aim at a blank wall. Place flash on camera, fire off test shots with camera set to flash sync speed and lens set to wide angle (eg 18 mm), ensure flash matches angle of lens. 
You will probably have to turn auto focus off, so that camera will fire, after taking photo/s use review to ensure that you have a nice even coloured piece of wall.
Any problems either with camera sync problems or flash coverage will show up in the test shots.
Camera sync, will show as part of the frame only exposed, for example you may find a horizontal line approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of frame with a proportion of the frame dark.
If you have flash "drop off" you will find the corners of your frame will be dark, you need to ensure that your flash angle specified on the flash and the focal length of the lens match.
Hope this helps Ian

Image Properties shown....


1: bias means voltage a neg or plus I assume the plus means more exposure.
2: focal length in feet ..if not using auto-focus
3: 4.6 feet
4: digital zoom is something I would never mess with but 3072/3072 sounds like a 3 megapixal square.
5: yes set the exposure to a fast shutter or bias in your case like - 3
6: why sure and quite a few pics in 1 minute with the right camera.

The Power Zoom appears to be locked at 80mm.


(I just cut-n-pasted the comment into the solution so this shows up as a solved problem in searches.)

"I've found the solution!
Just goes to show that sometimes it's worth simply calling the importer's service department, who told me in 30 seconds!!
Hold the zoom twist-ring and push, or click it up or down, depending on which way you are holding the lens.
So simple; I even accused him of not knowing what he was talking about.. and of course apologised profusely when it suddenly happened."
