How to switch from video to pictures


Push the mode button (the front button) until you see the single camera. It sequences through the whole series before starting over. The video mode is first, the camera is second. If may be different if you've set a different default mode, just keep hitting the mode button until you see the single camera.

How to set up ml-l3 remote control nikon D3200


Set the camera to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the camera when you push the button on the remote, just as if you were pushing the shutter release button on the camera. The delayed response remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the camera.

How do I set my D90 to use my ML L3 remote?


You need to set the camera's release mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To change the release mode, hold down the release mode button on the top of the camera (marked with overlapping rectangles) and turn the main command dial on the back of the camera.

Full details are in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 64 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from

I have a samsung L730 and i dont know how to set the timer to take a self portrait


In the shooting mode, press cursor-right (marked with a one-handed clock). Each press of the button cycles through the different self-timer modes. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

The full details are in the "Self-timer/Right button" section of the manual (page 31 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

When the shooting information display is shown, press the [i] button (the bottom one on the left) to switch to the quick settings display. Use the cursor pad to select the shooting mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press OK. Use the cursor pad to select one of the two release modes. The quick response remote mode (marked with an icon of the remote control) fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode (marked with the remote icon and "2s" gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

The flash is not openning


The flash may be set on "Suppressed" - meaning there will be no flash. On the back, by your right thumb, there is a round button. It's the ring around the MENU button. On the right of this you'll see a symbol which looks like a lightning bolt - (Flash). Turn on the power. Push down on the right side of this ring type button, towards the lightning bolt. Everytime you push, it sets the flash for a different mode. Try changing the flash mode and see if it doesn't fix your issue.

Canon T90 eee


I don't have a T90 or an FD lens, so can only guess what this means. This is quoted from the T90 manual:

"When you use the stopped-down AE mode with the FD lens, do not push in the stop-down lever with the lens set at the "A" mark. If you do, "E" marks indicating an error will appear to warn you of incorrect operation (EEEE EE in the viewfinder and EEE on the display panel), and the shutter is locked.

In this case, either push in the stop-down lever again to clear the stopped-down AE or remove the lens from the "A" mark. The error display will then disappear."

The stop-down lever is on the lower left front of the camera, and is what is usually now called the "depth of field preview" button. The "A" mark is the setting on the lens for fully automatic aperture control.

Look for a button marked MENU on the camera, push it, and see what the options are. One of them should be to switch to manual. Otherwise, consult the manual (or manufacturers website) for more info.

Will a lenses without the A setting on the apeture ring work on a DS


They will - fully open in Av mode, and with any aperture in manual mode - after you allow the Ds through the custom settings menu to use aperture settings different then "A". To choose correct exposure with such a lens in manual mode you can use the AE-button - it stops down the aperture, reads the EV and sets the shutter speed according to the chosen aperture.
