That depends on the exposure mode.

In any of the P modes, turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest aperture) and lock it. You control the exposure by turning the command dial on the camera.

In S mode, lock the aperture ring as above. Turning the command dial changes the shutter speed and the aperture changes to match.

In A mode, control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens and the shutter speed with change to match.

In M mode, control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens and control the shutter speed by turning the command dial.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, you can only use the P and S modes.

Error message


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

The aperture ring is the one with a bunch of numbers on it such as 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, and 22.

Nikon n6006 fee


Unless the camera body is faulty (very common, the camera is long past its design life)then the FEE error occurs when you mount a lens which has a separate aperture ring (i.e.any non-G lens) and fail to set the aperture to it's smallest (highest number) setting.

I have a Nikon D70, and a Quantaray lens (28-90mm). I have had this camera for about four months, and it has been working fine with the lens. When I received the camera, the aperture ring moved, but the...


In order for the aperture to be controlled by the camera's program or primary and secondary control knobs, the lens must be set to the smallest opening - or highest number value f stop. The aperture must be operated by the ring if it is not left in the smallest opening position.

The FEE code you are seeing refers to a communication error between the lens and the camera body. Sometimes, simply removing the lens from the body and reseating it to the body will solve the problem. While the lens is off the body, carefully inspect the gold colored contacts on the lens and mating contacts on the camera body. Remove any dirt or debris found, being careful not to allow it to fall into the camera - or land on the back glass of the lens.

I found another explanation and possible remedy that stated:

"A flashing "FEE" is an improperly set aperture ring in 99.9% of all cases with this error message (i.e. user error). In very rare circumstances it can be caused by a damaged aperture ring (small lug broken from back edge) that can't "tell" the camera it is at the minimum position. If the aperture rings on the lens is set to minimum aperture (highest number) and locked there, but you still get a FEE error, it's possible that sloppy tolerances are causing the lens aperture ring to not move the little switch at the 8 o'clock position (on the D70 lens mount) as far as necessary to get a proper indication of minimum aperture. Try to see if the aperture ring (while locked) will move slightly when mounted on the camera to clear the FEE error.

Another remote possibility is that the little switch at the 8 o'clock position mentioned above is not functioning properly (sometimes they get dirty). Try "exercising" it by moving it back and forth with your finger, then try the lenses again. Usually FEE has nothing at all to do with CPU contacts (with a reverse engineered third party lens anything is possible I suppose), but it doesn't hurt to clean them to eliminate that possibility."

You can also try a different Nikon compatible lens. If the trouble is still present, the camera may need to be returned for repair. If the the problem goes away, then the issue is tied to the lens itself. This would mean the the lens needs repair.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks!

I'm doing a project for school and i need to change the aperture for different photos. But my camera refuses to take the photo on any other aperture. Why is there an aperture adjuster if you can't use it....


It depends on the lens.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, simply set the exposure mode to Manual or Aperture priority and change the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. In Aperture priority the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately, in Manual you have to determine the appropriate shutter speed. If you want to use such a lens in Shutter priority or one of the Program modes, you must set the aperture to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it.

If you're using a lens without an aperture ring then it's a bit harder. You can only use the camera in Shutter priority or one of the Program modes. You turn the command dial on the camera to change the exposure, and the aperture will change. If you want to use an exposure different than what the meter suggests, you can adjust it by using either exposure compensation or changing the ISO setting (or both).

Why is the LCD flashing Fee and wont take a picture?


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). Lock it in place if there is a lock. You control the aperture from the camera as you would with a lens without an aperture ring.

Our Nikon d1x won't take a picture. It gives me an FEE type of error and the battery flashes.


The blinking FEE message means the aperture ring is not set to minimum aperture (highest number). Turn the aperture ring to the highest number, and then find the aperture lock -- either a little slider or a button you press and turn. That will keep it from accidentally changing again.

My nikon D70 camrea keep displaying FE E flasing what does this mean?


Hey pitsL,
This message should mean that the lens aperture is not set to its smallest aperture which would be the largest # on the aperture ring. This message could also mean your lens is not a G or D type Nikkor lens, or it is a non cpu lens which means if this is the lens should only be able to be used in full manual mode and the exposure meter will not function. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
