You need to shoot in the Manual mode by turning the mode dial to "M". You have to set the shutter speed and aperture yourself, without any help from the camera's light meter. You can review the photo afterward and adjust the exposure accordingly. The histogram will help in this.
Are your pictures properly exposed and are they sharp or are your pictures degraded? Is that 1/3-second you describe a delay between the time you push the shutter release and the time the picture is taken or somthing else? Check to make sure you're in the proper shutter release mode (slider switch to right of the mode dial). Also, your self-timer may be turned on. Your camera allows you to set a 2 or 10 second delay from the menus. If it is set to 2 seconds and turned on, it might seem like a 1/3-second delay. If that doesn't help, you camera is covered by Nikon's warranty. Contact Nikon Service at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.
In the P, S, and M modes, turn the command dial on the back of the camera. In the A mode, turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to compensate. In the point&shoot modes the camera will set the shutter speed on its own.
your question is not clear. I see technical point of view. you first should disable flash mode (flash off mode), many case the flash circuit continuously force powering on whenever camera switch on and user can not use momentarily. But you can use only in day light condition if the problem condition. If not, it is shutter unit is effective that can work properly. The shutter unit is inner lens unit assemble. You should then consult to local camera tech. Thank and best regard!
Hello, The 50mm lens is fairly old and uses a different system to the later lenses. On the D90 and other later cameras you should rotate the ring to 22 and lock it there using the lock just above the aperture ring. To adjust the aperture you use the front dial by the on/of switch.
Try it out in A mode. Rotate the mode dial on the top left of the camera to A (Aperture Priority mode) then lightly press the shutter button to turn the meter on. Then rotate the front dial and you will see the aperture reading changing.
The older Nikons changed their apertures using the ring but the later Nikons use the camera controls.
Your question is not much clear. When the camera shut off?? eg, after pressing shutter, etc. Did you use original battery?? What is your camera age?
PROBABILITY : Your camera might be have on/off button problem.
EXPLANATION : I had experience this with my coolpix 8xxx (could not remember exact model). The problem is with nikon on/off switch and shutter design. After a few years of usage, then the on/off switch with start losen a bit. These will cause autofocus activated without you pressing the shutter yet, and it will shut off without warning.
SOLUTION. There is no DIY solution for this problem. For temporary, try your luck with pressing the on/off swith a bit harder. But that is for temporary + a bit of luck. Best solution is to send the camera to Nikon Centre.
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.
