1) turn the mode switch/knob on the left of the camera to M ( manual mode ) 2) turn your lens to the highest f-stop ( 22 or 16 depending on your lens ) 3) in front of shutter release button you have control for your aperture : turn until the desired aperture is displayed ( view finder or the LCD monitor on the top ) 4) your shutter speed setting is controlled with your thumb with the control situated next to the strap lug on the right hand side of the camera. 5) press shutter release half way and look through viewfinder and see light meter reading and adjust either shutter speeds or the aperture as explained being guided by the l.meter.

I have a nikon d7000 from a gift and i never used a dsl camera before,how do i learn to use?


You can start with the online tutorial on Nikon's web site at
http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d7000/index.html

You might also visit your local library or bookstore and browse through the photography section. There are plenty of books on introductory photography, introductory DSLR photography, and other topics. The manual does a great job of explaining what each of the controls do, but doesn't do so great a job of explaining why you'd want to change these things. It's like the owner's manual for a car: you wouldn't want to learn how to drive just by reading it.

And most important: go out and take pictures! You're not paying for film and processing, so take a lot of pictures and look at them on your computer. Experiment, see what the different settings do.

I purchased a used Nikon FA camera for my daughter to use in her photography class. None of the pictures came out during developing. Any ideas what the problem could be? I was only given a 7 day return...


If it's still within the 7 days take it back. The Nikon FA was a great camera but time and lack of use has probably caused the shutter to seize. To put this camera back into serviceable condition for any photography will require a clean, lubrication and adjustment by a qualified camera person. I'm in Canada and have cameras service fairly regularly older ones to have this type of work performed will cost about $120.00 Canadian. The instructor is probably asking for the students to have a manual camera to be able to learn from the ground up which to me is the best way but, these old cameras are failing just because the grease is drying out. There are still a lot of good used working camera out there I just bought a great Canon Elan 7Ne for $199.00 CDN and it's a 2005 model the last year of the Canon film cameras. I guess it depends on if you want to spend the money (and time) to get the FA repaired or step into something for a little more money that works properly right from the get go.

My Nikon F80 won't turn on, I've tried changing the batteries in the battery pack and turning it on and off but I've had no luck.


Hi darciegracem, Does this happen with the MB-16 battery pack using AA batteries? If so clean the contacts on the battery pack and inside the camera. Make sure it is screwed snug to the camera. If it happen when using the two 123 batteries as well, it may need a trip to Nikon. These cameras go used for about $100 or less thus, you may not want it repaired but, rather purchase a used one from a reputable dealer. The F80/N80 is a very nice camera.

I'm the same of you, only I went for the D40.
One general photography book that seems to be recommended by a lot of people is Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson (ISBN13: 978-0817463007 or ISBN10: 0817463003)
I've just bought a copy, so will comment with my own opinions later if you want :)

Can't really comment on D70-specific books I'm afraid.
