Generally, a Nikon AF body - lens needs something of contrast to focus on (i.e., the tux of a groom) and with a white wedding dress, the autofocus tends to go 'nuts.' You could pick a spot (a pew) to focus on and then turn AF off: during the walk-down-the-asle, just shoot when the person hits that spot. In a less-than-bright church, maybe your eyes and digital are not a prime match. You could return to a film camera -- the F100 does well in lower light.

Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. Two to three years is the normal lifespan. Buy a new battery.

SHUTTER ON COOLPIX P90 NICKON


Go to Nikon.com and download the parts manual and the repair manual. The parts should list an exploded view. This camera needs to be kept very clean as do most sensitive photography equipment. If you crafty perhaps you can clean and repair it. P.S. If you bought the camera recently you can Buy a warranty package through Visa after repairs are made. The rates are 1/3 the cost of most extended warranties. When you purchase any electronic equipment through Visa it doubles the manufacturers warranty. For example: My 600.00 laptop cost me $66.00 for an additional 4 year warranty. So with the 1 year, you get 2 if you pay with Visa, and 4 additional. Total 6 year warranty protection. Good luck I hope this solves you problem. Please post a solved comment on fixya, so I recieve credit for the solve. This will increase my ranking on fixya.com

Serial number 16370112


1984

Marlins after 1948 use a system where you subtract the 1st two digits of the serial number from 100, to get the LAST two digits of the year it was made.

In your case, serial number 16370112 - 1st two digits = 16
100 - 16 = 84 = 1984

I have some old vivtar bayonet style lenses that have been in storage for the last 26 years are they compatible with any of the modern digital cameras


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of camera mounts, most of which are bayonet style. What modern cameras they may work with depends on the lens mount. If the lenses have a Nikon mount, for example, they'll work with any Nikon DSLR. If they have a Minolta mount, they'll probably work with any Sony DSLR (Sony bought the photography business when Minolta went bankrupt). If the lenses have some other mount then they'll probably work with cameras using the same mount.

It sounds like the battery is damaged and needs to be replaced. If it charges far too fast and discharges far too fast, a few of the cells within the battery may be dead.

I cannot be sure but a 4.5 year old camera 'may' have an old battery. Meaning you charge it to 100% and it has something like 25% total capacity. (Especially if you used the camera a lot) You never see a battery indicator on the display when shooting... like 5 minutes after you charge

It is well past the end of its expected life - retire it and ask for a new one for Christmas.

Nikon d40x


That's because the Nikon D40x does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the viewfinder and only to the sensor when the internal mirror is raised. Early live preview models from Olympus had the world's first Live View system by flipping the mirror so that the picture preview could be seen on the rear monitor. Most manufacturers now incorporate Live View into most of their models but most Nikon consumer models do not as yet, apart from the newly relesed D90. The D40 and D40x are two year old designs and therefore do not have the more "modern" specs of say the Olympus E520 or Canon EOS450D. Most photographers trading up from a compact to a DSLR are surprised when they cannot use the monitor in the same way. However for most aspects of DSLR photography Live View is not something that is used all the time, low down shots, macro perhaps being the most convenient use, but for general photography there is no substitute for framing through the viewfinder, that's what we've been used to doing for over half a century! Besides as pointed out previously a DSLR is often too heavy to hand hold at arms length especially with a long lens.

Use LCD instead of view finder in Nikon D40


Can't be done. Digital SLR cameras only view through the eyepiece, unless they have a "live view" function, which the D40 does not. The LCD is therefore for viewing an image after it is shot, and setting your menu options.
