"D80 acting funky"


metro Columbus Area, US
          

Not sure what is going on, but thought maybe someone would have an idea of what to do. Recently I've noticed that when I set my camera in Manual mode, it doesn't stay with the settings I choose. Not sure what is going on. Example would be the other night I set it for onboard flash open, 1/125 second, F4.5. When I took the photo, it changed my settings to 1/200 second and I didn't get the shot I wanted.
Any ideas why it has decided to have a mind of it's own? What I can do to fix it?
Thanks!

Look closely to see if you can see the BKT indicator - when the exposure seems to be changing on its own, especially in manual mode, that's virtually always what it is!

Hi Jennifer,

As Brian wrote above, it sounds like you inadvertantly turned Bracketing On. Turning Bracketing Off should solve the problem.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Yes, I guess I accidentally turned it on when I was doing some moon shots a couple weeks ago.
