Re: Image rings when using Coolpix for microscopy

Under some circumstances when using the Coolpix 4500 attached to a microscope concentric rings are visible as in the below. The COOLPIX 4500 aspherical lens surface is ground to create the ideal curves to gather rays at the focal point with an extremely high accuracy. Such minute lines are not visible in the image taken with a camera alone, however if the camera is used with a microscope, the lines become visible as the depth of field is increased due to the combined F numbers of the camera lens and microscope lenses.

When I take a pic there is a circle on it.It is like green.Could it be the lens.No clue why it is there?


Seems to be a tiny microscopic chemical dot or damage on the lens. Or damage of the image sensor. Did you tried to capture the direct sunlight, or did you photographed the sun (few times totally enough). Surely burned the image sensor. Usually occurs when camera being used in bad whether conditions in out side for long time. In you case better consult a professional camera service personal.

Focus problem. Coolpix 5000 mounted on Nikon microsocope for photographing tissue slides. Perfect digital images for years; now 90% poorly focused. Image viewed through microscope in perfect focus, image...


If you are initiating the shutter manually, it is quite possible that the camera has become very slightly loose at the F-mount. So, when you press the shutter button, the movement though it may be extremely slight, is shaking the camera at the exact moment you are taking the picture.
Make sure that the camera is tight to the F mount and that the F mount is secure to the microscope.

If you are initiating exposure via software, it is still possible that there is still some slight movement on your desk.
Remember, the slightest movement is magnified many, many times to the camera.

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista


this solution was originally written by a fellow expert dauphine



You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:


  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.

Use a card reader or card slot to transfer images.

LCD oddly discolored but final image OK


Don't rush to the store. CCD's in video cameras have it, My Coolpix has it. It has something to do with the way information is written to or read from an LCD or CCD. And although it looks bad, it's perfectly normal. Use an early days $50,000 broadcast CCD videocamera to record a person welding and you'll get a perfectly vertical white line in your image. But as you said: It's not in the actual image of the Coolpix (although I wouldn't know if it will show up when you make a picture of someone welding).

White circles appear on the image. Why is That?


When shooting with flash in a location where there are many suspended particles, such as in a dusty area or on a snowy day, the image may contain white circles as shown in the picture below. Why does this happen? If the flash fires when a suspended particle floats right in front of the lens, the reflection of the flash from the particle appears more intensely than that of the subject, as the particle is much closer to the lens than the subject. Therefore, the reflection of the flash turns out in the image and causes an effect such as that shown in the sample image above. The closer the lens and strobe are located, allowing suspended particles to be exposed to more light, the more frequently this effect can occur. How can I avoid this effect? Ideally, it is best to shoot in locations where there are very few suspended particles. If not, you can use following method to prevent this effect. a) Avoid using flash by lighting the area as much as possible. b) If your camera has a zoom function, shoot at a wide angle. c) If you can attach an external flash, use the external flash to distance the flash from the lens.

TCON


The focal length set on the camera is wrong. If you are using the TCON series extension lenses the focal length needs to be set at full telephoto, 36mm.
