Here are the possible causes and the solutions for each:

Cause 1: The most common cause of the tint in the images is White Balance. It is possible that you have set the wrong White Balance. Since you are getting a blue tint, you might have set the white balance to 'Incandescent' (Tungsten) or 'Flash'. Changing the white balance to Auto. Most White Balance problems get eliminated by this. For this, press WB on the mode dial and use the command dial to change the values.

Cause 2: The unwanted casts could also be due to the in-camera processing. To check this, Select 'Set Picture Controls' from the Shooting menu. From the four options, select one that gives the minimum processing-- that is, either Neutral (which gives minimal processing) or Standard (It gives slight enhancements, but the tones will be balanced).

Cause 3: It is also possible that the White Balance of your camera has been tweaked. So if the above steps do not solve the issue, try tweaking the white balance to your liking. For this, press WB and use the sub command dial (the dial in front of the camera near the Shutter Release button). Check the result each time you change the value until you are satisfied with the result. As a guide, the ideal values of different settings are: Daylight (direct sunlight): 5200; Incandescent: 3000; Flash: 5400; Cloudy: 6000; Shade: 8000 etc...

Shooting with a D300, outdoors, landscapes - usually in Manual - I get the R17 flashing and the shutter release won't work. If I wait a while - 2-3 minutes sometimes, it goes away and I can resume...


To me you have two unrelated problems. The r17 if shown in the lower right is amount of reserve frames you can make in a burst with the lighting conditions. The number should change as you "burst" shot continuously. Another way of putting it is the amount of pictures that the buffer can handle before stalling the camera. Don't forget to that the camera is writing to the memory card as well as the buffer so this number is going to fluctuate.
Okay now for the shutter not releasing. Your camera requires contrast to focus not contrast no focus. So while doing landscapes you may have huge expanse of sky (no contrast) maybe water, bright sand, white clouds, infinity or all of the above. Your camera focus needs some contrast. so what I do in this situation is grab a focus well into the scene somewhere switch to manual and recompose the shot and take the picture in manual focus mode. I'll tell you were else you will have problems if you are talking about weddings is a bride's white dress Good Luck with that one. You need an edge of contrast or the camera just thinks it's looking at a painted wall.

My ownerd manual will not download in this computer. How do I turn on the fine pix mode on the camera?


iam glad to be of help. The owners' manual can also be downloaded at the following internet address:

http://fujifilmusa.com/shared/bin/S1000fd_E.pdf

On page 79 of the manual the folllowing procedure for changing the finepix colour setting :
  • (STD) F-STANDARD: the contrast and color saturation are set to standard.use this mode for normal photography.
  • (C) F-CHROME: The contrast and color saturation are set to high.This mode is effective for taking more vivid shots of subjects such as flowers.
  • (B) F-B&W: This mode converts the colors in the photographed image to black and white
When setting the (C)F-CROME or (B) F-B&W the icon appears on the screen.

Hope this helps!

Exposure inconsistency with 18-200mm on my Nikon D300


A plus-or-minus one-third stop is perfectly normal if you're handholding the camera, especially when metering a high-contrast subject such as a lit lamp. If you really need to lock the exposure, use the exposure-lock button or set the camera to manual.

D300, SB-800 fires but no exposure.


Thats is odd.
When you hook everything up, do you turn on the flash last?
It sounds like the battery pack is giving the flash a different voltage then it should have causing incorrect readings and exposures.
I would send the pack back to Quantum(located in Ronkonkoma, NY) and have them check it.

Monitor is blueish


If the Blueish problem appears try play around with the VGA cord and see if the Colors comes back, if not, try hiting the monitor to see if the lines and color problem comes bcak to normal. If not your monitor's circuit board needs some dry solder, it could be the cold solder problem. Cheers.
