20 Most Recent Nikon D300 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Is this preventing you from shooting?
Normally the r-number simply indicates how many more shots you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills up and the camera has to slow down to save the pictures to the memory card. It's purely FYI and shouldn't stop you from shooting (until it gets down to r00).

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and then forget it's there. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.

Sounds like you have a bad release switch. The switch is a bunch of stacked rectangular metal leaves, and they develop metal fatigue or just crack with heavy use. Unfortunately Nikon stopped selling parts July 13th, 2012 so you are pretty much out of luck trying to fix it yourself or find a reasonably priced independent servicer to fix it for you. [You might get lucky and find one that still has the part in stock, or find someone selling them on Ebay]. You will most likely have to send it to Nikon. Good luck.

Yes - there are such adapters.

Most of the time however, you lose one or more functions like you do when using extension tubes. These can be metering, auto focus, aperture control on the camera body (must be done on the lens barrel instead), etc.

If you have nice Minolta / Vivitar glass, it would probably worth learning to use the camera in a manual mode with these inexpensive adapters.

Good luck!

SD and Micro SD memory cards SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

The lock that's around the 4-way button that moves the AF point will stop it from moving. The AF switch (says C,S,M) on the body below the lens release button gets knocked to manual and turns off the AF

Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 15 mins, replace the fully charged battery, go to the Menu setting and set the Date and Time.
If it still does not work then - this camera needs to be sent away for repairs. Just like a motor vehicle, some repairs to your camera require a technical specialist to fix your problem.

Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens in question has a Nikon mount then it will fit perfectly well on a D3000. If the lens has a Canon mount, for example, then it will not fit at all.The lens is a manual focus lens, so autofocus will not work. You'll have to focus by yourself.The lens also lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You will have to shoot in the Manual exposure mode, setting the shutter speed and aperture yourself, without any help from the camera's light meter.

I'm going to assume you mean the ML-L3 remote. If I'm wrong, please post a comment specifying the remote you are using.

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick remote fires the camera when you press the button on the release. Delayed-response remote waits two seconds to let you hide your hand behind your back before it fires the camera.

The ML-L3 is an infrared remote, so it must be pointed in the general direction of the infrared receiver on the front of the camera.

my battery sticks because I dropped it down a mountain - no joke - the battery compartment is slightly out of shape - you can't really tell - so the battery sticks in. I just give it a gentle tap and it comes out.

Having gone over a month without a response, I assume this is no longer a problem.
