I friend of mine found a solution in this site: The frequency is 38,4KHz

Another factor: Digital sensors are typically smaller than 35MM film frames. A lens which only has to produce a good (reasonably flat-focus and evenly lit) image across a smaller area can be simpler/cheaper than one which has to cover a larger area, for the same focal length and light-gathering ability. So some "digital" lenses are so marked as a warning ...

The relevant details appear to be on page 167 of your manual under the custom bracketing settings. You can set the parameters to either be set manually or automatically, it sounds like they must have been changed to automatic from manual.

Yes, lenses designed for digital sensors have several differences from their older film based camera lens counterparts. One of the primary differences is that digital sensors are more reflective than film, so anti-reflective coatings are applied to the rear element of a digital lens. This helps prevent reflections off the sensor that could result in image ...

Some 'film' lenses designed for 35mm rangefinder cameras have a rear element which lies quite close to the plane of the film or sensor (mostly wide-angle lenses). These work fine for film, but when used on a digital camera cause quite noticeable colour shifts to the left and right of the frame. This is due to the extreme angle of the light from the rear ...

This is a personal choice based on how much you value the features. Go over the specifications, read the reviews, then decided. No one here can make that decision for you.

I guess newer product is better product. Nikon D5200 has lot many good feature than D5100. Some of them are ISO sensitivity, Higher FPS, More No of AF points(39 vs 9). So your extra bucks will definitely paid off.

There is one significant difference between film and digital sensor for lens optics - digital sensors have a bit of glass and some filters in front of them. The lensrental.com blog has a pretty extensive series of posts on the effect of the sensor stack (short version, there is a very real effect for large aperture lenses) - so it is quite possible that the ...

I think you are putting too much emphasis on the "digital" part of the DG designation. It seems to be more to differentiate them from "digital" lenses that are APS-C only. Sigma calls their current APS-C only lenses "DC". When digital SLRs first began to gain a foothold in the market, they almost all had sensors that were APS-C or similar sized. So new ...

From the symptoms you describe a virus is highly unlikely. Physical damage is a high possibility. When placed the card in the wallet, if you then placed the wallet in your back pocket and sat down this could have put significant stress on the card resulting in damage. If this is the case card is probably beyond economical recovery. If there is any ...

Yes, but it would depend on what Android device you have. DslrDashboard claims to support it on some Android devices: To be able to use the application with your USB connected DSLR you will need an Android device that supports the USB host function and an USB OTG adapter that you can buy cheap on internet or build it yourself. The application is free, ...

Maybe you can ask for a bayonet replacement. Not sure your lens can be serviced, though.

The Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG APO Macro is a lens that is available for both Sigma cameras and as a third party lens for many other brands, among them Nikon. These different manufacturers uses different lens mounts and this particular lens is available for Canon EF, Nikon F (FX), Pentax KAF, Sigma SA Bayonet and Sony/Minolta Alpha mounts. These mounts are not ...

The two main places the sand could be is on your mirror or on your focus screen. I'd suggest using a bulb blower (e.g., RocketBlower), and not physically touching anything in the camera (e.g., using a brush or microfiber or something). Whatever you do, don't use canned air. Simply taking the lens off the camera will show you the mirror. The focus screen ...

What do I do about bright spots in my Nikon D810 images? DPReview advise that <- Click me Nikon has announced a service advisory (in mid August 2014) for the Nikon D810, in response to reports of 'bright spots' at long shutter speeds and in 1.2X crop mode. According to an announcement on Nikon's website, affected cameras will be serviced free ...

The problem is that with a reverse macro adapter, the lens loses all electrical connection with the camera and thus its aperture will stay in the default setting, which is usually the smallest possible aperture that gives you very little light. If the lens does not have manual aperture control, I heard that you can get an "aperture control attachment", not ...

I have two old lenses that I knocked down causing dented filter ring. Both were attached to camera body. One was a 2ft drop onto a soft flooring, one was a 1/2 ft knock to a basin, when I was hanging the camera on my shoulder. Both lenses are still functionally intact.

quick fix: no way. Certainly not with the information you provide. As is, if you drop a camera from that height the best assumption is that it's dead as a dodo, probably cracked and otherwise damaged components throughout, stuff out of allignment, etc. etc. etc. Get a new one, and be more careful with it. Sending it in under warranty with some fake story ...

Some basic troubleshooting you can do, with anything really, is to systematically test everything you can control. In this case I would try it with/without different batteries and memory cards, try different buttons to see if you can get a response out of the screen. Try the DoF button to see if that causes anything to happen in the lens. Try different mode ...

Actually instead of holding the apeture lever or using an aftermarket adapter you can use your DOF preview button or live view when the lens is connected properly. Then without shutting the camera off, pop the lens off and your apeture should stay where you had it set while it was connected properly. Much easier and I have used this trick with a d3100, ...

I see this is an old post BUT here is my 2 cents worth of wisdom. I have a d7000 and I'm goi.g to get this lens and probably a 1.4 tc. I can't afford the bigger lenses or the 2.8 versions. After reading as many reviews on this lens and weighing all the other options this is what in left with. I bow hunt and have taken alot of deer and squirrels with a long ...

I had the same problem during a trip. I lubricated the red shutter wheel with WD40. You have to roll the wheel and try to use as little as possible WD40. Since then (4 years ago) my D40 is working perfect with hundreds of shots. Of course, there is a possibility that the above solution might not work.

The clue is in the title of the support article which is "What memory cards have been tested for use in the Nikon D3100?" and not "What memory cards have known to be incompatible with the Nikon D3100?" Nikon are not saying that the 32GB SanDisk cards (SDHC/SDXC), only that Nikon have not tested them. SanDisk appear to have tested their products with the ...

This photo is severely back focused. Areas about 15-20 feet behind the main subjects are in focus. Some things to keep in mind: When using wider apertures, especially combined with larger sensors, Depth of Field becomes shallower. So any focusing errors are more apparent. This is especially a problem in low light when most camera's auto focusing systems ...

The picture was taken in low light conditions and then the following issues will start to conspire against the sharpness of the picture: The autofocus is not very accurate in low light conditions The small 18mm focal length instead of, say, 50 mm also makes the autofocus less reliable The exposure time of 1/60s seconds is not fast enough to prevent ...

I suspect what you're seeing here is that the depth of field when using a large sensor camera like the D5200 is much smaller than that from something like a smartphone or a typical compact camera, especially when you're using a relatively fast lens like your Sigma. It's a little hard to tell on the image you've posted, but it looks to me like the gentleman ...

You can't, the Nikon D200 is too old to be able to read the sensor in realtime in order to show you the image on the LCD screen. That feature was introduced with the D300 / D90

Make sure to rule out the obvious: that your monitor is incorrectly calibrated. Try viewing the images on another computer, or attach an external monitor to your laptop. If possible, try printing a sample with a reputable printing company. Is it still green? Ok, then the conversion is the problem. If not, you have a problem with what your monitor is ...

There are various general considerations when buying a macro lens. What is compatible with my camera? Nikon's macro lenses include the word Micro in their name and their current line up can be found here. From those you would need an AF-S lens or you will not be able to use autofocus. What level of magnification are you looking achieve? The smaller the ...

This kind of thing can happen if your NEFCDC is out of date, since it needs to be updated for every new camera that comes out. If that doesn't work then try opening the NEF with with the View NX or Capture NX 2. Each NEF image includes a JPEG preview image. If the embedded JPEG preview has a green tint, then the NEF will too. You can also get a green ...

try the free Capture NX-D from Nikon's website. There you can adjust the photos before exporting them

The Coolpix 885 is a very old camera and it simply cannot address a card that big. The file system is only a guide to how data is organised and has nothing to do with how write operations are handled at the interface/card level. The camera needs to be able to write to any part of the card even if it is never going to be used by a partition/file. The ...

The Nikon 80-200 2.8 D lenses, the push pull and the two ring, both have back focusing issues on some DX cameras. I had the same problem with my push pull version, very annoying on my D300. I tried everything to remedy this to no avail. What I finally figured out is that the newer DX cameras have some problem with the distance information of the older ...
