I’ve an issue with utilizing automated and semi-automatic modes. For instance, I’ve “pretty optimum” gentle, in “A” mode I set the specified aperture worth, let or not it’s 2.Eight and ISO 200, after I swap to reside view mode on the LCD display, all the things is okay, relying on the circumstances I get low shutter pace (all the way down to 1/800s). After switching to the viewfinder, the time will increase instantly to very large values, even as much as 30 seconds. I can change ISO and aperture each methods, however the time doesn’t change both in any respect or the change is minimal, it “works” the identical in any automated mode, I attempted it for each lenses, for various lighting circumstances. The LCD display shows a warning that “the topic is simply too darkish”, the time doesn’t change after I put my eye to the viewfinder. Footage come out all white (no shock), as well as, within the AUTO mode the flash at all times fires.
I restored the manufacturing unit settings, reset all person settings, formatted the reminiscence card, downloaded the present firmware from the Nikon official web site, and reinstalled. Nothing has modified:
LCD preview: ISO 2000 and a pair of.Eight aperture, the shutter pace has been set to 1 / 500s, the picture is okay.
View by way of the viewfinder: ISO 2000 and aperture 2.8, the shutter pace modified to 30s, whereas i modified the publicity compensation to -5.0, the time dropped to 1 / 20s, the picture got here overexposed.
In handbook mode (and automated when previewing on LCD) all the things works moderately effectively, I took a number of hundred images and I didn’t discover any issues with sharpness, the modifications in parameters are seen, I am even capable of shoot in weak gentle circumstances, so I don’t perceive if my Nikon is just defective, whether or not I’m doing one thing unsuitable or don’t perceive one thing about its precept of operation.
