    Re: New D500: All Shots Blurry

    I'm betting the D3400 was on "auto-iso". Fixes most all (forced aperture) metering issues while using reasonable shutter speeds.

    The exposure info is all visible in the viewfinder before you hit the shutter release. No need to wait for an exif to find the problem.

    Re: New D500: All Shots Blurry

    After looking at your pics, the only error is that your ISO is too low! It doesn't show up in the EXIF data, but I am confident that is what's different between this and your first camera.

    Here's a link to a Nikon page that tells you how to turn on Auto-ISO in the D500 menus:

    https://imaging.nikon.com/support/di...socontrol.html

    But I am willing to bet that if you simply push the ISO button on top of the camera and roll the front command wheel (in front of the shutter button) one click, it will turn on Auto-ISO. That's how it works on my D850.

    Re: New D500: All Shots Blurry

    Thank you all very much. I think I failed to articulate what I was after, but several folks seemed to get that I couldn't understand why aperature priority worked so beautifully on my D3400 and essentially not at all (out of the box) on my D500. Obviously ignorance on my part, but thanks to those that stuck with me.

    Several suggested ISO, but when someone indicated that the D3400 likely was auto iso (at least out of the box), that made sense to me. Going and setting auto ISO got everything working as expected. I am sure there are tradeoffs and clearly I have a lot to learn and there are other things to factor in, but at least now, I have some mechanism to get sharp photos without a lot of manual intervention. I want to definitely continue to learn, but I was going crazy, having spent that much money and feeling like I couldn't do the thing that gives me the most relief from anxiety.

    I obviously have a lot to learn, but at least now I feel like I have some path forward.

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    With Respect,

    I apologize if I was too blunt. You said in your original post that you had been shooting for 4 years. I and I think others assumed you had at least a basic understanding of exposure and were trying to help diagnose the problem you were having with insufficient info.

    As the post went on it became obvious that you don't have a good grasp of proper exposure, thus my blunt comment meant with no disrespect. We all had to learn how to expose a photograph and many are still learning, including me. Good luck with your new camera. I think, in time you'll come to love it like me and many others.

    I also love shooting birds and use a D500. Different lens but it doesn't really matter in this context. I have mine set on Aperture Priority as well and have AUTO ISO enabled. When you enable auto ISO, make sure you set your minimum shutterspeed high enough. I have mine set at 1/1600th which works for me.

    @bluegrassman
    (Oops, me and Blacktop posted about the same time)
    Go into your menu with the camera icon. Scroll down to ISO sensitivity settings. Use the selector to arrow over to the right for more settings. Is it set on auto shutter speed? If so, it won't limit how low the shutter goes. You can set it to a minimum acceptable hand-held for your lens so that you won't get shake.
    Maybe that will help solve the issue for you if you are using Auto ISO.

    (I see you are satisifed after setting the auto ISO. Anyway, of you check this setting it will prevent some further problems down the road while useing auto ISO.)

    Post some images, and let us know how you are doing.
