Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Our D60 used to take great pictures. I only use it on Auto since most are pics of people or still objects and really I don't know to use all the settings. All of a sudden, the shutter speed is now very slow and all pictures are blurry. I have read the manual to adj settings and tried to reset it. Nothing is working. What can I do to fix this?? Please help! Thank you

The pictures are blurry due to camera shake, which in itself is caused by the slow shutter speed. Try using shake reduction setting. To increase the shutter speed, raise the ISO rating.

SOURCE: slow shutter speed

from the manual: Using Shutter-Priority Mode 1. Set the mode dial to S (shutter-priority) and a yellow arrowhead on the screen points to the current shutter speed. Press the jog dial and the current shutter speed turns yellow. 2. With the current shutter speed displayed in yellow, rotate the jog dial to select the speed you want to use. 3. Take the picture. If a workable aperture isn?t available for the shutter speed you?ve selected, the shutter speed indicator on the screen flashes when you press the shutter button halfway down. You can use the setting as is, or press the jog dial down to select the shutter speed again and rotate it to select a new shutter speed.

Hello
The hand symbol is alerting you that the camera will have to use a slow shutter speed to get enough light into the camera. Try pointing the camera at something bright, and the hand will not show. Therefore, if the hand is on, then you probably need to use the flash.

It may be a problem of selecting the matrix for auto focus. Single zone is best.

Its due to slow shutter speed setting.
If you want to take moving object picture, set high speed shutter, there would an icon of golf stick that is for moving object pictures.

SOURCE: shutter too slow and pics of people blurry.

If your camera has a sport or action mode that would be your best option if your pics keep coming out blurry. These modes are made for action shots. Its worth a try!

D60 has SD card full message but the SD card is brand new and formatted.


Have you tried using it in another device that reads/writes SD cards?
It's possible it is a counterfeit SD card. Some counterfeit cards don't work or are not the true capacity. If it it a name brand like SanDisk it will have a serial number. The counterfeit ones typically don't have serial numbers.

Why does my Nikon D60 while on auto focus or quick shutter speed either not focus and take the pic or focus and not take pics?


I have a 5D Mark II that has acted up like this. 99% of the time it will reset itself it you power off, remove the lense and allow them to sync up. Try this, it may work for you too!

How do i know if my pictures are saving on my card? is there anyway to view pictures objects without looking through the small opening?


The D60 won't save pictures anywhere other than the memory card. If you can playback your pictures by pressing the playback button (marked with a right-pointing triangle), then they are saved on the card.

The display on the back is for the menus, reviewing pictures already taken, and shooting information. The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century: you use the viewfinder to compose your picture. The LiveView feature is a recent development in digital SLRs. Nikon introduced it into their cameras with the D3 and D300. The D60 is designed as an introductory model and lacks this feature. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

A good solution is from the main overview screen, press the button in the very bottom left-hand corner. From there, you can manually adjust the exposure of all pictures taken. Try turning it down until the pictures look normal. Another thing to try is to lower the ISO, which can also be controlled from the same menu, or from the settings in the camera. The max is 1600, with the lowest being 100.

Nikon D60. When viewing pics I get a section of the display that flashes on and off. I have no idea what's happened and I can't get back to viewing pics without the annoying flashing, it flashes black and...


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been overexposed so much that they've gone pure white and lost all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you so. Of course, the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

In general, the proper fix is to reduce the exposure by using exposure compensation to bring back the details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but that's generally considered not as bad. After all, we don't really expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is: press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your picture.

That is a problem that has to do with the Flash...make sure your flash settings are not turned on. If the flash can't find an image...it rotates and usually never finds the image. It's reading in a Flash mode.

the blurry condition is caused by the movement was too fast so the camera couldn`t capture it, the yellowish picture is caused by unmatched white balance presetting

according to my experience, when you want to capture a moment like this,
switch the dial to S (shutter) mode, set the shutter speed to 1/80 or faster, using a flash will be an advantage, don`t forget to set the white balance to auto option

hope this advice help you with your problem

The Nikon D60 does not have "live view" capability, so you'll need to use the viewfinder to frame you shots. If you need "live view" capability, consider purchasing the D80 or D90 instead with offer the feature...

Blurry pics indoors


1. you could try it with flash, but the lighting in the picture would look artificial, won?t reflect the interior of the building as it really is, and the flash will cover only near objects leaving the rest dark, and we?ll be missing the point. 2. recommended ? place the camera on a stable platform(table, chair, shelf etc in lack of a tripod), adjust its vertical angle by placing some flat object under the front side of the camera, set it to auto or a preference to slow shutter speed(usually 1/60 to 0.5 of a sec according to the lighting), set timer(most cameras only give you about 2 seconds) in order to avoid vibrations during the picture taking. 3. you should avoid using more then 50 to 100 ISO, more will give you a grainy effect. You are promised a sharp picture with life like colors that looks real.
