Nikon D50 won't take pictures in the dark
reset options, took lense off an put back on, tried several modes
Hi,What setting is the mode dial on?Does the flash work?Is AF assist on?
I am not sure on AF - how do I know?
For AF Assist, see below. Does it light up when shooting in dark environments?
yes it is on
Depending on how dark you are talking about, you have 2 options. The first is to focus manually, there is probably not enough light to produce the contrast necessary for the camera to focus. In auto focus mode the shutter will not fire if focus is not achieved. You can also try raising the exposure compensation or EV (the camera's sensitivity) allowing more light to be detected.. Please see pages 45-47 of your manual for these options.If you require additional information, please use the Reply to Expert Tab to contact me.
