I could tell you how to fix it but it would probably cost more than a new camera. just buy a new one.

My Nikon D200 keeps blowing out the whites and sometimes everything in the shot. You can reshoot the same subject and everything is fine but sometimes you can get a good shot. Any suggestions?


try not using the full auto settings all the time. the auto system has a tendancy to over expose. the camera can over or under judge the lighting and make an improper exposure

I am using a Nikon D200. When using flash I can't raise the shutter speed any higher than 1/250. It seems to be locked there and I don't know how unlock it. Please help.


That's entirely correct. 1/250th is the fastest shutter speed you can use when using flash. Many other cameras can still only use 1/60th or 1/125. It's all to do with the two curtain nature of an SLR shutter: when you release the shutter, one curtain withdraws across the frame to expose and then a second one follows behind to shut off the light source. For exposures of 1/250 or slower on your camera, the second curtain does not start to travel across until the first one has fully opened, so you have a fully open exposure frame allowing the flash to reach every part of the sensor. At faster speeds, the second curtain sets off before the first one has finished and at the highest speeds it's so close behind the first that only a narrow **** is open to the incoming light as the shutter curtains pass across the sensor. If you fire the flash at these speeds the shadow of the first or second (or both) curtains will appear on the sensor and the picture will look like a narrow horizontal band, or if using fill in flash, it will look like a bright band across the picture.

It's immaterial though as the normal exposure rules don't apply with flash: the flash duration is typically anywhere from 1/4000th to 1/50000th and in that exposure time it outputs sufficient light onto the subject to enable a photo to be captured. As the flash is the dominant light source, the ambient light captured when the shutter is open for 1/250th is insignificant unless you're making a daylight exposure and using the flash for fill in purposes.

There are some specialist SLR and flash combos which will allow the full range of shutter speeds, but they do so by firing the flash multiple times very rapidly to ensure that there is flash light present effectively continuously as the narrow exposure **** passes across the sensor.

Compact cameras have shutters which work differently and which fully expose the sensor at all shutter speeds, so in that respect they can have a far more flexible flash exposure system. Unfortunately, they ruin it by having pathetically weak built-in flashes which are only good for very short distances.

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.

Black flashing on screen where light is


This allows you to see where your photo is over or under exposed. It helps you see if the exposure is set right.

You can turn it on and off by moving the Up/Down/Left/Right button up or down. This will move you thorough the image data (shutter speed, aperature, file format...etc.). It should show "Highlights" on the screen when you have this selected.

Intermittent D200 malfunction


Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Nikon D60 is suddenly taking very dark pictures


I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.
