You can customize shutter through the dial mode...

The D1 can be operated in single-frame or continuous shooting mode,self-timer mode,playback mode and PC mode...

To set the operating mode, hold the mode dial lock button down and turn the mode dial to desired setting.

Modes available:
(S) single frame shooting: one photograph is taken each time shutter-release is pressed, The next photograph can not be taken until the current photo has been saved to the flash memory card and the card access lamp has gone out.

(C) continuous shooting mode: Photographs are taken at a maximum rate pf 4.5 frames per second while the shutter is held down. Photos are stored in a temporary memory buffer,which can hold a maximum of 21 photos. When this limit is reached. The camera will be unable to record more photos until at least one of the images in the buffer has been transferred to the memory card.

in the event that the D1`s battery gets exhausted while taking pictures in the continuous mode the camera will stop shooting,
save images held in the temporary buffer to the memory card and turn off....

The shutter switch seem to be loosely connected.

Error on nikon d 70s


I occasionally get an ERR on my D-90 and it seems to happen for different reasons. Sometimes, it's kinda hard to figure out and it's hard to clear as well. One way I get it, is if I try to shoot without the SD card installed. I've also gotten it when I've been in manual mode and the settings were so far off that the camera could not function as set. So far, I've always been able to clear the ERR by turning the camera on and off if nothing else works.


I went to the D-90 manual and could find nothing about error messages nor could I find any reference to error messages in the table of contents. I happened upon what Nikon calls a Q&A index in the front of the book before the main index. Down in the list of questions, there was one which said "What do these warnings mean?" then a box which said error message and a reference to page 255 in the back of the book. I went to page 255 it showed a multitude of messages of different types but only one ERR.


The explanation was that this indicated a "camera malfunction" and to clear it, you are supposed to release the shutter. In the next box, it said that if this condition persists or occurs frequently you should contact Nikon Tech support.

Interestingly, when I get this message, the shutter will not release and I have to turn the camera off to make it release. When I turn it off and back on the error message has clear.

I hope this information helps with your D-70.

Incidentally, I've found the people at Nikon tech support to be very friendly and helpful.

Shutter won't operate


Usually when my shutter won't operate, I get an ERR message. I have been able to fix it by turning the camera off and back on. If that doesn't work, I have occasionally had to remove and reinstall the battery.

The D-90 users manual says that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and can be cleared by releasing the shutter. But, I found the shutter won't release unless you turn the camera off.

The manual also says if this condition occurs frequently or persists, you should contact an Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest before you do that, that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they might suggest.

When I turn on nikon d80 err flashes


The Nikon D-90 users manual says on page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter.

I've found on my D-90 that the only way I can get the shutter to release is my turning the camera off. When I turn it back on the ERR message is gone and the camera functions as it should.

Occasionally, I have had to remove and reinstall the battery to make the camera turn off but this happens only rarely.

The users manual says if the condition occurs frequently or persists that you should contact a Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they suggest. I think this information would apply to the D-80 as well.

The r05 is not an error message. It is an indication that the camera is shooting in burst mode (multiple shots with one button push) and that you can shoot five more shots before the camera must pause, clean its cache and be prepared to shoot again.

I have a nikon d90,when i pressed shutter button ,it is giving err message then i press second time it is not giving err message but not taking the photo.


This is an indication that the camera is not "talking" to the lens correctly. When you press the shutter button, the camera tries to focus, set light levels, and then shoot the picture. If it can't focus or set F-stop and shutter speed, then it can't shoot the picture and gives you the error indication. SO
1. You need to make sure the lens is an automatic lens capable of working with the D90. 2. You can take the lens off and back onto the camera a few times in case its a dirty contact issue or just didn't seat correctly. 3. Set the D90 to manual and make sure you move the AF selector on the front to M. Then you would manually adjust all the settings. That should take the auto-coupling out of the picture (pun intended)
4. If it still shows error when in total manual mode, there may be something wrong in the camera itself. Before giving up, do a total system reset on the D90 (I assume you have the manual).

Error blink in place of shutter indicator


I AM SAGHA REPAIRER FROM MUMBAI I THINK THERE ARE PLENTY OF REASONS SHOWING ERR ON TOP DISPLAY BUT IF ERR IS SHOWING JUST BY TOUCHING THE SHUTTER RELEASE BUTTON THEN THE MAIN BOARD IS DEFECTIVE.IF ANY MECHANICAL ACTION OCCURS AFTER PRESSING SHUTTER RELEASE BUTTON AND THEN ERR APPEARS THEN THE FAULT COULD BE OF SHUTTER & APERTURE BLOCK.I THINK ALL THESE SOLUTIONS ARE FOR EXPERTS AND NOT FOR GENERAL USERS IF ANYBODY FINDS THEM USEFUL LET ME KNOW & ALL THESE ARE BASED ON MY OBSERVATION ABOUT FAULTY CAMERAS.
