Hey everyone!!

A message from Norway.
1'st post, and my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D90.
I've had some camera's before, Konica and Pentax.
But, that was back in the stone age... :roll:
So, now I'm trying to learn my new camera, and I just love it.

 Post subject: Is my D90 alright?
PostPosted: Wed Dec 09, 2009 11:25 am 
Hello.....

I was just wandering about my D90, when I took it on a holiday and took some night scence with it ( using my kit lens and a long exposure ),
why is that when I finish taking the shot? my top display screen say "Job nr" and I can't excess the camera? But after a few seconds I can excess it again....what's the problem? And why does my led light on the right botom of the camera keeps blinking when I turn the camera off?

Master and guru's of d90 pls help

Have a look at page 167 of your user's manual. You must have long exposure noise reduction turned on. Have a look in the shooting menu to turn it on or off.

I cannot seem to change the settings for contrast. :S I can change saturation ans sharpness levels and not contrast. Has anyone ideas how to solve this? I cannot find the solution in the manual.

I think it means running the noise reduction job/task so the camera is busy processing the image. I would suggest you already have it turned on as the camera will not run the noise reduction image processing when the function is off.

It's called picture controls. I think you press OK to select them, and the D-pad right button to edit them. ;)

@nonam:

Read up on dark frame subtraction, that will explain it to you. Basically it only kicks in for longer exposures (like 3+ seconds).

I know ... and all that works for saturation and such, but not for contrast. It just skips that option. Frustrating ...

Hey Soliwo, I had the same problem when I got my D90.
Hit the Info button twice (you can also find it in the menu) and go to Active D-Lighting, click that and turn it off.
You should be able to adjust the contrast and brightness.

That is, indeed, the active D-lighting option (it says that in the menu).

I have it turned off since all it does is underexpose and add fill light and gives me flat images, so don't worry too much about it :)
