Failure to shot in very bright light

My Nikon F80 refues to shot pictures in very bright light - - even when I try to change the shutter apiture or the speed it refuses to shot. I have tried using a polarizing filter but that also has not worked. I normally use Kodak 400 film and aside from this irritating problem the camera produces beautiful pictures. Any advice?

I want to take star photos, how do I keep the apiture open (with a shutter cable) I tried but it doesnt stay open!


Set the mode dial to "M". Turn the command dial to set the shutter speed to "B". The bulb setting leaves the shutter open as long as the shutter button is held down, or fifteen seconds, whichever comes first. Unfortunately, that fifteen-second limit is much too short for good star trails. This is a limitation of the camera; there's nothing you can do about it.
This is a common problem with point&shoot cameras, even the advanced models. They're okay for 98% of the photographic situations you might encounter. But for the other 2% they either can't do it at all or make you go through hoops to do it. Just about every DSLR has a bulb mode that keeps the shutter open as long as you hold down the button (or better, yet, between two presses on a remote control unit so you don't even have to touch the camera), or until the batteries run out (and in those cases you can use auxiliary battery packs or just plug the camera into line power).

I have a Nikon N60. Can't take pictures outside


can you manually change your f-stop to faster shutting. When the shutter stays open longer, it will draw in to much light. If you have an option for only outside pics, then I would try that as well.

Problems shooting with Nikon D90


The r in the display is not an error. The number after the r simply tells you how many more shots the buffer can hold before it fills up.

If you're set for AF-S, the shutter will not release until focus is achieved. You can switch to AF-C or else focus manually.

Nikon D60x Blurry night pictures


Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

put simply the ISO number is how sensitive the film is to light, the higher the number the more sensitive the film. The ISO on the camera sets the exposure system to give the proper exposure for that film (the f/n80 usually sets the ISO automaticly). Also the higher the ISO the more grainy the picture, I would recommend using ISO 200 film for the pictures you describe. I would set the camera to the P setting it is a good all-around setting.

Changing lens


Your Nikon is a SLR which stands for single lens reflex. The reflex part is the way the mirror that lets you look through the lens to frame the picture flips up to let the light go straight to the film. You can change the lens half way through the film roll because the mirror is down while you change the film and blocks light from getting to the film, just as it blocks the light until you push the shutter button. Have fun with your 'new' camera! I use an even older style Nikon FE2. I like my Nikon 55mm macro lens but your newer camera takes autofocus lenses so you'll need advice from someone else for that.

Black monitor Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital


Give the lense side of the camara a few moderate slaps while moving camara from bright to dark obgects back and forth. the shutter gets stuck and doesn't respond to changing light. that's why outdoor pictures are usually too bright and indoor pictures are black.
good luck.

Nikon N80 Shutter? Issue


dear ben505,
This could be due to the shutter leaking light from the top or bottom, and it could also be caused by light leaking in through the camera back. The most common cause of edge fogging is light leaking in through the film canister, which happens over time if the unused film is not stored properly. If this is a high ISO film(400 and up) and you load your film into the camera in a very bright enviroment that can also cause film fogging. Try a brand new roll of film and if that doesn't resolve the problem I would have it looked at by a camera service technician.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
