Rads_london,
Sounds like you have been shooting in one of the manual modes, make sure if you have been trying different F-stops to change the aperture ring back to it's auto position (red numbers F-22 usually) to align with the white dot on the lens. That way the camera and lens can agree on the amount of light needed and how much the shutter will open to allow light in. The camera won't take the shot if it is way off (kind of a safety). Use the viewfinder to learn what combinations the camera needs for a particular shot so you can be familiar with the speed and aperture settings, try them in one of the manual modes and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results. Soon you won't shoot as much in auto mode.

Nikon D5100 camera flash does not pop-up. Any suggestions?


You can't pop up the flash in the Auto mode. In this mode the camera decides whether to use the flash or not.

Try switching to one of the PSAM modes. Does the flash then pop up when you push the flash button?

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..


The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

Instructions:
1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

This is kind of embarassing... i received an old nikon f65, and i don't know how to remove the film properly without burning it...


The film should rewind automatically at the end of the roll. If it doesn't, press the two film-rewind buttons simultaneously for about one second. The film rewind buttons are maked with a red film icon; one is also the exposure compensation button to the right of the LCD control panel, the other is the auto exposure bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder.

Once the film is rewound, turn the power off. Slide the release lever on the left end of the body, and the back should pop open a little.

Nikon F65 35mm how to change the aperture


If the lens has an aperture ring, it must be locked at the mininum aperture (largest F/number). In PSAM modes use the command dial (possibly in conjunction with the exposure compensation button) to change shutter speed/aperture.

Canon 3000N Auto focus fault


No extra batteries.

Usually this is a lens fault as the focusing gear is all in the lens. Clicking sounds as if a rear pinion has cracked. It's not uncomon in the 'prosumer' level lenses where plastic gears are used a lot.

It's just possible the fault is which the auto-manual switch. This usually has a mechanical clutch coupled to it which physically disconnects the gearbox from the focusing ring, as well as operating a switch to tell the camera to turn off the AF system.

annlane123,
Since you have been taking photos in one of the other modes, say shutter or aperture mode you may have changed the F-stop in the process, check to see that the ring is set back for auto mode by aligning the red numbers (ususally F-22) to the white dot on the lens, that way when the camera in auto needs more light the lens will open enough to allow it. Test it with the metering in the viewfinder you'll see it as you change to each number. Remember both the lens and camera are communicating with each other. Not allowing the shutter to release is kind of a safety.

External flash problems


Sounds like the external flash is being triggered by the pre-flash.

On the D40 set the flash mode to manual. On the F65 set the flash mode to Standard TTL.

Error message


Your camera probably doesn't have a problem. Mount a lens on it and turn the aperture to the smallest opening = F/22 or F/32 then try it.
