Hi - I just replied to your other request re the same problem.

I think your shutter is not operating properly. This should be repaired by an expert not a home handyman.

The way a shutter works is that there are 2 curtains. The first one opens to allow light onto the film/sensor plane and is followed by a timed gap by the second curtain to shut out the light.

Your symptoms could be either a sticky second shutter, or less likely a faulty sensor.

As said in the other response - get a quote for repairs and work out if it is more economical to repair the camera or buy a new one. Is it still under Warranty?

Sorry I can't give a quick fix answer.

Good luck with it.

Nikon d50 monitor does not work during photo shooting, must use view finder


This is completely normal. The monitor is used for setting menu items, displaying shooting info, and reviewing images. Like SLR have functioned for over fifty years, you take pictures by composing and framing through the viewfinder. Only the most recent dSLRs have the Live View capability which allows you to use the monitor like a point&shoot camera.

My nikon D60 is taking dark photos.


The only reason the camera will be taking dark photos is when it is under exposing the image taken. This can be due to the exposure compensation set to under expose the metered exposure. Make sure the expsosure compensation is set to '0' or increase it to compensate for the dark photos.

Also inaccurately metering a scene (such as a high contrast scene) can easily fool the meter into under exposing, especially outdoors.

Hi - not really sure of the problem but I think it is the shutter not opening fully during the exposure. If this is the case a camera repairman should be able to fix it.

Is the camera still under warranty? If not, get a quote for the repair (as this may mean replacing the whole shutter mechanism - not cheap) and see if it is more economical to repair or replace the camera.

Better hope that it is still under warranty.

Sorry I don't have a quick and easy solution for you.

Good luck.

Exposure


check exposure compensation settings.
if no value being added/deducted, then the battery would be next, then check for flash setting deviations.
also, check for white balance settings indoors and make sure to use either auto white balance, or select the type of light you have, such as floro's or incandescent.
otherwise, time for service. could also try with different lens.

Auto bracketing on a nikon d50


no. if you want more than 3, you will have to manually bracket those beyond the initial three. alternately, you can get a reading for settings then change to manual and continually adjust your aperture setting from whatever under exposure level you want to whatever over exposure level you want.
