White-Balance correction works best with a bright grey. Most grey surfaces work but precision is lower when the surface is darker. Correction will not work if any of the channels are clipped which is why too bright is a problem. The reason extreme brightness is problematic is that the camera is unable to figure out what transformation to apply if the ...

We strive to make faithful images, however, we often fail for one reason or another. Imaging a white object ranks high on this list when it comes to difficulty. A pitfall is that incorrect exposure renders a white object too dark or too light. Likely, even when correctly exposed, the resulting image will have some unwanted tint. In other words, it is not ...

Your greycard is not filling the frame. That won't help at all. Fill the entire frame with it. Focus is not important. Right now, you have a huge area of 'not grey' for the system to contend with. The whole idea of the white balance preset is that you present it with a known quantity - an 18% grey field, completely filling the frame, in the lighting you ...

I experienced a similar problem, the "Time-Lapse movie" was grayed out and could not be used. Turn out to be the XQD memory card was not in the camera slot. Time-lapse can only be activated if the XQD card is well inserted in the Z6 Camera.

Sofortbild (free software) works for me, I switch between LRC and Sofortbild if I need liveview

You're using the wrong software, and assuming all USB data feeds are equivalent. This is happening because your Nikon is not a webcam, and is not feeding a signal to the Windows Camera software that it recognizes as a USB webcam. You need to translate the USB signals from your D5600 into something that can be recognized as a USB webcam by your video ...

The live view mode on Nikon cameras is entirely in-built. When you activate the mode, the sensor is displaying the result onto the screen, but as far as the general functionality of the camera goes, nothing has changed. It's still expecting to record the video onto the memory card. The USB cable can be used to transfer files and trigger the camera in ...

you will need a capture card and HDMI cables.

I am having a similar problem. I have a D5100 with a Nikon 18-300 dx lens.I was trying to shoot some birds among several branches and the lens would not focus, and the viewfinder vibrated a lot. If I stopped pressing the shoot button and tried again, the problem would disappear, only to reappear again when I try to shoot something with a lot of complexity in ...

I have a D3200. I just commented about installing and testing Digicam Control on my Windows 10 laptop. I've also just installed and tested qDslrDashboard with my Android. Both of these options work like a champ with the D3200. No issues. Image as clear as a bell.

Officially, the only way to remotely trigger your D3500 is with the Snapbridge app. Unofficially, and if you consider USB-connected to be "remote", you can control some of the functions of your camera using qDSLRDashboard on either your computer or your Android device, tethered via USB cable (to PC) or USB-on-the-go cable (to Android). The D3xxx ...

Well does your camera work now? I don't think there should be any damage, unless you drop it on the floor or something like that Cameras are not that easy to break by "shaking"

I personally think the 35-70mm f/2.8D in most situations is every bit as sharp as the newer AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G IF-ED ok the 35-70mm is possibly more prone to lens flare but you have to ask yourself how often do you shoot directly into the sun not very often is my guess. So if you can live without the 11mm difference at the wide end then the 35-70mm f/2.8D ...

For Nikon Z, the fastest way seems to be: Add "Storage folder" to "My menu" and move it to the top Assign "Access top item in MY MENU" to an fn button You then get the "Storage folder" menu with one button press. You still have to navigate the menu to select a folder from the list (down, left, select, ok). I did not ...

The card can be used on other devices viz. other brands of cameras, laptops etc. It could just be a random compatibility issue, however keep in mind that it is somewhat risky. I noticed this happening with 64gb Samsung micro-sd cards that come with SDHC adaptor - but never with standard SDHC of any major brands. The cards that don't work on my Nikon d750 ...

The Canon 1-Series bodies have a few dedicated buttons and even a small monochrome LCD on the back of the camera for file/folder settings. I'm not aware that you can do that on any other Canon body using a direct button. However, many Canon EOS cameras have a section named "My menu" where you can place shortcuts to many menu items on a single menu ...

This option wasn't available when you asked the question, but now that Nikon has introduced its Z-mount mirrorless system, that's the obvious upgrade path while still staying within the Nikon ecosystem. Any of the Z bodies coupled with the Nikon FTZ adapter will let you continue to use all your existing F-mount Nikon glass with the new camera. Mirrorless ...

The card is defective. Throw it away and get a new one. Even if you could make it work, it could no longer be relied upon.

The Nikon D5600 has a quiet mode for the Release that works well in all but the most serene of scenes. Quite mode appears to space out the open and return sounds to the shutter, thus, you get two momentarily spaced out "snippets of sound" rather than the one open-to-close roundtrip "slap" of the shutter when using regular Release mode. ...

The simplest way is to use Lightroom. Select the healing tool, resize it using the scroll wheel of your trackball or mouse, and click on the hot pixel. Lightroom will automatically detect where suitable pixels exist to replace those missing when the hot-pixel is removed.

The naming in the headline of the first link is incorrect as Nikon only every released a single version of the 24-120 with a constant F/4 aperture. The fact that they made up a new name to make the lens seem newer is a red flag and so I would recommend avoiding purchasing from such a vendor.

Scottbb's answer tells you why it's there, and what you can do and what you can expect in the future, but as for the image you already have: Paint over it! I would use a "clone" tool, to paint over the bright spot by cloning some of the surrounding texture.

I can't tell if they are hot or stuck pixels (see: Hot, stuck, or dead pixels. What's the difference?). Stuck and dead pixels are completely normal, they happen. As a matter of fact, there are almost certainly more stuck pixels in your camera than you even know about. The camera maintains a "pixel map" of known hot pixels, and automatically ...

According to the manual, this should work. Excerpt from manual:

This isn't possible with DSLRs using optical viewfinders. This image (source) shows the cross-section of a DSLR: Normally light enters the lens, reflects off the mirror (#2) into the pentaprism (#8) and then to the optical viewfinder (#9). When the mirror is in this position, light does not reach the sensor. When recording a video, the sensor makes 60 ...

According to the Z6/Z7 manual, Interval timer shooting will pause when Self-timer (E) is selected for release mode or if the camera is turned off and then on again (when the camera is off, batteries and memory cards can be replaced without ending interval timer photography). Pausing shooting does not affect interval timer settings. And in order to continue ...

According to the Dummy's Guide to Interval Shooting with the Nikon D5200, the intervalometer is reset after shooting finishes. While this is not the model you're asking for (D5200), mirrorless cameras generally run very similar software to the same brands' DSLR cameras, and it is extremely likely that this purposeful design decision was kept. As an aside, it'...

I've been using 32gb cards since I bought my Nikon D3100 more than 7 years ago. Not any problem with them, them from the little finger nail sized in adapters, to regular solid ones. What I want to know is whether, or not, 64 or larger cards will work with Nikon D3100. Thanks.

Yes, it can damage your camera. Particularly, it can damage the sensor of a camera that does not have an optical viewfinder and that keeps the sensor exposed to provide an image on the LCD screen for composing photographs even faster than it can damage a camera with a mirror and optical viewfinder that protects the shutter curtains and imaging sensor from ...

A camera is not a PC where you can swap standard components. Physically, the processor's tiny little contacts are soldered on a printed circuit, so you can't change just the processor, you would have to change the electronics, and it's unlikely that a circuit from a new camera fits in the old (size, but also fixation points). These new electronics would ...

It looks like the first link (the $528.75 lens) may be a GREY MARKET lens and thus may not be subjected to the full warranty that Nikon provides. They are usually sold by 3rd-party retailers on sites such as Adorama, B&H, and Amazon. The seller on Amazon for this particular lens is 6ave, not Amazon. The second lens, costly a fair bit more, is sold by ...

Apparently my Coolpix B500 version 1.1 firmware has the same hitch. When I go to the firmware version menu pick all i get is the display of the version 1.1 with no other menu options. the reader needs to understand that we do not get any picks under firmware version menu only the version installed. Other than the simple fact that the update does not ...

VRm is just a typo. You can cross reference the annotations on the lens with the official Nikon Page for your lens (AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR), which lists the following technology attributes (or tags): ED - Extra (low) Dispersion Glass VR - Vibration Reduction SWM - Silent Wave Motor IF - Internal-Focusing A-M - Auto-Manual Mode Support SIC -...
