"My D5000 does not click when I press the shutter"


IN
          

Hi,

I have been facing a problem while taking pictures. The camera at times does not click when i press the shutter. I am not able to locate the reason for this. I tried various modes Auto/Manual/Program with AF and MF both, but it does not click.
It shows me an alert to use flash... but why should i get this alert if i am on manual mode and that too in day light.

Please help.


Thanks,
Madhurima

Hi - I'm not that familiar with the D5000, but look at page 55 of your owner's manual.

On my camera, I have a menu choice regarding focus and release. I can program it to release anytime, even if the subject is not in focus, or I can program it to release only when the subject is in focus. It would appear that your camera is programmed to release only when the subject is in focus. I don't know if you can change that setting or not. Also, on page 55, Nikon suggests that in low light situations, autofocus may have trouble focusing on the subject.

Either way, I don't think that there is anything wrong with your camera. I'm sure that another Nikonian will probably follow up with some more accurate information, so check back again.

Did you ever figure this out?

I bought the d5000 recently. While my other cameras can be programmed to shoot even when out of focus, I have not found a way to program the d5000 to do this.

I prefer it to shoot and let me make the decisions- I primarily shoot in manual but like to use AF when I need it.

If you put the auto-focus mode into "continuous", the camera will fire with or without focus being achieved.

See pages 54 & 55 of your user manual for a discussion of the various focus modes.
