    Re: Tip #83 Why doesn't my D7000 give me pictures like I see in the sample galleries

    Hi Grandpaw, here is something I discovered today. To the best of my knowledge it is not dealt with in any D7000 literature. You may want to share it with the rest of the folk. It is a very handy feature.
    I wanted to take Raw pictures only in selected cases, and fiddled with the FN button to try and achieve it. Next moment all my pictures on card 1 was duplicated - Jpeg as well as Raw. I do not want that. Raw takes up twice the space jpeg uses. I could not find a fix. After a lot of frustration I discovered that if you press the Qual button and simultaneously turn the rear dial you can set the card configuration. It shows in the bottom left corner of the top screen. My camera is now set to only duplicate in Raw when the FN button activates it, and then de-activates it.
    Regards

    Re: Tip #89 My pictures are all foggy, what is going on?

    Just upgraded from D70s to D7000 last week bought brand new. A big upgrade i must say and I'm very happy with it in terms of handling and performance. Except that I can't use my favorite lens nikkor AF 50mm 1.8
    Have anybody have the same issue with pre G lenses?(AF lenses with aperture ring in the body)

    Good day to all

    Do you have the lens set to F22 and the lock switch on the barrel of the lens in the locked position?

    Yes sir, even cleaned the contacts. It's been working perfectly with my D70s this error message never appeared even once. Also tried it on a friend's D90 and it worked.

    Re: Tip #92 Shooting photos from a vehicle

    I just tried with my 85mm f1.8 AF on the D7200 and it works fine. This lens is even older than your 50mm f1.8 :

    - G lenses = current. No aperture ring
    - D lenses = previous generation with aperture ring and chip in the lens to indicate distance
    - AF lenses = oldest - same as D lenses but no chip to indicate distance

    It looks like there is a problem with your D7000 body. As far as I am aware there is no option in the body to deactivate older lenses

    Thanks Charles.

    That's what i think too. I'll be bringing it to Nikon service center soonest to have it checked and replaced since it's just more than a week and under warranty.
    I brought it back along with my D70s to show that its working perfectly in an older model to the outlet where i bought it and i'm not satisfied with the salesman's explanation.

    If someone would give me a D7200 or D750 I would be more than happy to start new tips threads. I have had a list of medical things come up this past 12 months starting with fighting off cancer and a list of several medical things that has pretty much eliminated a photography budget. If some kind person or company wants to donate a camera I will get started right away!!!

    Gee Jeff, I'm really sorry to hear about your medical issues. That really sucks. Are you getting making any improvements ?

    I am through with the chemo treatments and the cancer is gone. Both of my shoulders have had rota-tor cuffs redone but now need to have shoulder replacements also I have been told that my knees are worn out and they also need to both be replaced and yesterday the doctor told me that I have to have lenses put in both eyes to fix my eyesight and astigmatism. You know that is a lot of stuff I have going on but I was telling my wife that anyone that thinks they have it ruff doesn't have to look far to see someone much worse off. I am a very optimistic type of fellow and I think that I have a lot to be thankful for so I am just trucking along and will get one thing at a time fixed and feel very fortunate that each of these thing can be fixed. A lot of people have things wrong with them that can't have anything done for so I believe that I am a very lucky person and when I get done getting everything fixed I will be up and running like new.
