Question about Nikon D2H Set Digital Camera

1 Answer

Whenever I take a photo, or try to, my Nikon D2H focuses and refocuses without actually getting a clear photo and won't let me snap a shot. Is there a setting that may have gotten changed to create this kind of problem? Or is there another way I can fix it?

Pmlemar,
It sounds like a problem with the auto focus. You can narrow this down with some different tests.

1) Try turning off auto focus and taking a picture. If that works then try
2) Another lens, see if you can duplicate the problem that way. If you can, you either have an auto focus, or lens communication problem. If you can't duplicate the problem with a second lens, then you know the lens you were using is the culprit.
Thank you.

I understand the autofocus Nikon N55 was subject to a recall and it might have been for a shutter problem that I am having. After autofocusing, the camera will not permit me to snap the photo. I thought it...


You can contact Nikon through their website, nikonusa.com (or the appropriate website for your country), or they also list 800-numbers on the website for various countries. You can also contact a NASR (Nikon Authorized Service Representative) in your area if there is one. Keep in mind that often recalls and TSB's have a time limitation on them, and the extension for this model may have expired.

Does the focus lock indicator come on, indicating proper focus when you're using autofocus? Does it happen all the time, or only under certain conditions? Have you attempted using a different lense?

2 problems. I have the Coolpix L100. Sometimes my photos are blurry and also. there is a delay when I snap a photo which isnt good when trying to get action photos.


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

If you take lots of action pictures, you will have to work on a technique of partially pressing the shutter to get focus in anticipation of the shot (perhaps focussing on where the action will occur), then holding it part-pressed until the moment you want to capture. This is really no more of a problem than setting an anticipatory focus on a manual focussing film camera use to be. Some more complex digital cameras will allow you to turn off auto focus and focus manually.

Why do i see a blury target when i look thu the scope with myglasses and it is clear without them


Because your glasses (prescription or reading) are configured to correct your "far" sighted vision deficiency. Even though the scope is located at a very close distance to your eye, the point your scope is focusing to/at is many? yards in the distance. If you're like many of us, you can see satisfactorily at a distance, but your arms aren't long enough to allow you to read a magazine?

Pictures out of focus


Keep the camera on AUTO, and refocus on every shot (push the button down until you see the green cross-hairs in the center of your subject - let up and then "snap" your photo).

To change the battery - open the door on the bottom right.

NIKON D2H ERR FAULT


I had a D2H with a similar error. The camera started giving an 'ERR' message almost from new but from reading various posts from other users I assumed it was a 'known' idiosyncrasy of the D2H, the camera would create an underexposed first shot after turning on. A colleague has the same problem on his D2H, and there are numerous references to the same problem on the web. Your post points to a similar shutter issue. My shutter failed completely at around 65,000 actuations, well short of the advertised '150,000'. In addition, the horizontal Main Command Dial had also failed a short time before, and it had cost me £135GBP to have that repaired.

The problem is down to the shutter and unfortunately replacing the shutter costs £349GBP in the UK, quoted to me by the Nikon UK Service Department, in Kingston, in March 09.

As for Nikon repairing it under a 'goodwill' policy, you may have better luck than me if you live somewhere other than the UK. I told them to keep mine, as attempting to charge me for the repair was the last straw, it wasn’t worth me spending another £350 on a camera that hadn’t been reliable in the first place. I had been planning on getting a D3 in October/November but will now probably sell my Nikon gear and go over to Canon, as Nikon don’t seem too bothered about their professional user base, and I certainly won’t be paying £5,000 for a D3X.

My automatic focus isnt letting me take pictures.


Check the rear optic on your lens. Then may be dust or debris preventing the focus to lock on your subject.

Seriously confused...


I was very confused too. I finally sold my S2 Pro in favor of a D2H just recently. It is indeed a fantastic camera. I worried that decision for many weeks over concern about going to 4 MP from the excellent output from the S2 Pro. In my shooting, I haven't been hampered by the lower pixel count at all. In fact, my images have improved markedly because the camera is SO accurate. It let's me get shots I never would have been able to get with the S2 Pro. I might have waited for the S3 if Fuji had indictated any substantial improvement in the body, AF and metering, but it looks like their focus is on the sensor, and the camera is going to remain a tool of the studio and wedding photographer rather than the outdoor shooter. The general concept of going to the D2H from the S2 Pro is by no means a no-brainer. A lot depends on what kind of photography you are going to do. But I can tell you that the output from the 4mp D2H is really excellent, and for me, the AF accuracy and speed is astonishing having used an S2 Pro for many thousands of images. The camera handling difference is absolutely night and day, and for me, I have found it vastly preferable to nail a 4 mp image rather than to miss several 6 mp images.
