Question about Tamron 200-500 F5-6.3 DI AF Lens Nikon

1 Answer

Using 200-500 Tamron on Nikon d300. When I shoot, camera freezes. Clock and exposure readout next to it, on top panel, blink. Camera will not turn off, I have to take the battery out. Lens works fine on D200. All my other lenses work fine on D300. Have been using this lens for several years. Not sure what the problem is.

Maybe there is something wrong with your batteries? Replace them. I had the same experience with my D200 and a Nikon 18-200 lens, later with my Nikon 10.5, Sigmaa 135-400. After replacing the battery everything worked as ever.

D90 won't work. Blinking Clock in top LCD panel.


First, turn the camera off and then remove and reinstall the battery. Turn the camera back on. If the clock and battery icons still appear, try resetting the clock. If this doesn't work, contact Nikon technical support at www.nikon.com and see what they have to say. It may require a repair but determine if the camera is still under warranty. If so, Nikon may repair it at no charge.

Tamron 200-500 mm f5-6.3 "lens not attached"


This lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to set the aperture to its smallest setting (as you've done) and switch to the manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M). You'll get no exposure assistance from the camera's light meter. You can use a separate light meter and/or adjust the exposure by reviewing your pictures.

I have a D300 with a 4gig card. Takes 366 images at 12 megapixels. Using CH mode and taking lots of exposures of a couple of subjects plus single exposures the control panel tells me after a total of 212...


Unless I'm mistaken, does the camera take the full 12MP when shooting in CH mode? I don't think so and that would explain why you still have 250 exposures left.

Cable release won't work


I use a cable release on my D300 quite often and in all modes (timed, multiple or single exposures). I am not aware of any special programming or set up requirements. If the release works on one camera and not the other, then you are correct in your diagnosis.
Contact Nikon service. The number and info is on the Nikon web site.
There are two locations. I have had good luck with the El Segundo location.

I don't know how to set the Nikon D300 for fast picture shooting.


Setting it to portrait mode should do it. Hold down the shutter button, it should be working. I'm not overly familiar with nikons, but otherwise it'll be in a menu mode if you switch it to a more manual setting. Probably under shooting mode. Set it to continuous shoot

D300, SB-800 fires but no exposure.


Thats is odd.
When you hook everything up, do you turn on the flash last?
It sounds like the battery pack is giving the flash a different voltage then it should have causing incorrect readings and exposures.
I would send the pack back to Quantum(located in Ronkonkoma, NY) and have them check it.

D300 Manual exposure problem


likely there's nothing wrong with the D300 - all that's happened is that its inadvertently been set into bracketing mode and hence it cycles through 3 or 5 or 7 different exposures each time it is activated!

Self timer on nikon d300


on the top of the camera, there is a dial which says QUAL, WB and ISO. Look for button and ring just below this. It should say S, CL, CH, Lv, a clock and Mup. Press the button to release the ring and rotate it to the clock icon to activate self timer
