Customer Question
I am using a...

I am using a Nikon 1 v2 with a nikon 1 nikkor 10-100 lens to take pictures of receipts. I have direct lighting and am not using a flash. When I zoom out, the photo goes black and I'm sure it's a setting that's wrong but I have no idea what - it's my boss' camera and he's out of town. I know next to nothing about photography. help please!

Technician's Assistant: What Nikon model do you have?

The camera says Nikon 1 v2

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

I've reset the settings in the menu, so I guess it's back to how it was purchased. I really have no idea what I'm doing.

Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with over 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

This sounds like you have the camera set on a full screen metering mode. This will take in account the ambient light surrounding the receipts and will try and balance this out. Try setting the camera on "Spot Metering" to allow for only the point of focus. This should take care of the problem for you.

Please provide a positive Rating so that I may be credited for my efforts.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask rather than leave a negative response.

Thank You

Rick
