Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D40. I wish my photographs to be numbered consecutively, 0 to whatever the numbering system goes up to (9999?), even when using a new card, without going into different files or whatever. I named a file "Card 1". The photographs come out labelled "100Card1 DSC 0001" etc. Yestreday, for no apparent reason, having reached "DSC 1021", it then started back at zero and was labelled "101Card1 DSC0001". When I go into the Folders menu there is no mention of "100" or "101", just "card 1" The instructions in the manual as regards frame numbering and files is close to unintelligible. How do I set it up so that frame numbering is continous, even when I start, or change, a card?

You need to set "file number sequence" to "on" in the setup menu. However to get to this menu item you need to ensure that "CSM/setup menu" is set to "full", also in the setup menu.
The setup menu is the one marked with the spanner (wrench).

Do Nikon duplicate (re-use) serial numbers on different models of DSLR?


They reuse serial numbers. You need both the model and the serial number to uniquely identify a camera.

Good day! how much is the nikon d40 at this moment? thank you =]


Both the Nikon D40 and the D40x are discontinued products and thus have no set price. While some dealers may have a few remaining in stock, you're much more likely to find used ones. The price of a used camera is whatever the seller and buyer agree on.

Having problem to set up live view


That's quite understandable, as the D40 doesn't have the LiveView feature. This is a relatively new development in DSLRs. Nikon first introduced it with the D3 and D300, both released after the D40.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but we can't change history just by wishing it.

I have a D40 and have been able to use he LCD monitor as a view finder, somehow I lost this ability and can't seem to get it back. Any ideas. I lost it several months ago and another photographer was able...


If you were able to use the LCD monitor as a viewfinder on the D40, then there was something wrong with your camera.

The D40 does not have a Live View capability.

Nikon D40 (very dark photographs)


If lens has aperture ring make sure its set to highest aperture (f22 etc). With nikon CPU lenses, all exposure metering is done inside lens, sounds like lens still has problems. Try another lens to test camera body, camera shop should be willing to help with this.

Problems taking pictures with nikon d40


Chances are good that it's not your camera, but your lens. In a darker atmosphere, you need a fast lens, meaning you need a lens that has a wide aperture (1.4 to 2.8) I'm guessing you're using a lens thats' 3.5 or larger. (Yes, the larger apertures have the smaller numbers)

If your camera was spending all it's time moving in and out trying to focus, it's probably because there was not enough light for the camera to distinguish a focal point. Same thing happens when you shoot a solid blue sky. No focal point.

Help me understand by telling me what lens you're using and what settings you were using on the camera.
