Customer Question
I need to check...

I need to check the settings so I can take photos of fire works. I find that when set up the camera will not take a photo.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your camera?

D5200

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your camera?

I tried last year at New Year fireworks but the light had to be very bright before it would fire.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

I have it set on Bulb with an iso of 200 and f8

If the D5200 will not take any photos at all then try resetting it and set it up again.

To reset the D5200, press and hold the MENU and INFO buttons for 2 seconds (both buttons are marked with a green dot for reference).
