    Question Problem with shutter or aperture priority?

    Just put on my new/old Tamron SP AF 60mm f2 Di-II LD (IF) lens. When I put the D90 to either aperture or shutter priority something happens that doesn't seem right. For example, if I set it to aperture priority, say f4. Take a picture then tried to change it to some other aperture, it will not change unless I turn the camera off and back on again. A similar thing happens when on shutter priority. This doesn't seem right. To be honest I have never (to my shame) played about with the A & S settings.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Brian

    Is it the 35mm style lens that has an aperture ring on it? If so, you need to keep the aperture on the ring set to the smallest size (f/22 or whatever f-stop it offers). Quite often there is even some type of switch to lock the aperture ring there so it doesn't accidentally get changed. Then you use your camera like you would with a lens that doesn't have an aperture ring - using the command/sub command dials. If the lens doesn't have the ring, then I have no other ideas.

    Is this the only lens this happens with? Because you're right, that's not normal behavior.

    You could try cleaning the contacts using denatured alcohol, or DeOxit (my personal preference), and see if that helps.

    Re: Problem with shutter or aperture priority?

    Put my other lens on and that does the same. It doesn't have an aperture ring on it. Weirdly, when I try to change either aperture or shutter speed neither changes but the rear screen come on and it scrolls through my pics. As soon as I take a pic the rear screen comes on (normal?) but when I switch the rear screen off the aperture and shutter works OK. I'm beginning to wonder if there is a setting somewhere although I have reset it using the two button press.

    Re: Problem with shutter or aperture priority?

    If image review is turned on, you will scroll through your pictures after taking a shot and turning the wheel. If you half-press your shutter button, it should end image review and then you should re-gain control of shutter and aperture. We are talking about viewfinder view, right? (not live view).

    You can turn off image review if you don't like it.
    I must have a really good camera.

    Has this lens / these lenses ever worked properly on the D90 ? Is this a new failure ?
    If a new misbehavior, then probably some menu item is the jinx.

    I am talking about 'live' view. I haven't played about with the manual modes much before so don't really know if this is a new problem or not.

    Most of us do not use live view for our everyday shooting mode. We use it for mostly special situations. Its kind of clunky to use. Anyway, what I said above still holds true with image review, it needs to end before you can adjust shutter or aperture. Now in live view, adjusting shutter or aperture won't show you real time changes in what you are viewing on the screen. You will see the settings change but they wont be applied until you snap the picture. Again, image review needs to be done. It needs to be either timed out or killed with a half press of the shutter button. Or just turn it off in the playback menu.

    Thanks Nickt, just found out that pressing the shutter button half way switched the live view off and everything works as normal. Thanks for that. I learn something new every day. Panic over whew.

    P.S. Am going to start using the manual setting most of the time now.

    Glad to hear Nick was able to help. As he mentioned, most of us only use Live View for certain situations. For me, that would be macro or if I am using my D750 with the articulating screen and am holding the body down really low, I will look at the image via Live View. And since Live View drains the battery much quicker, I only use it when necessary.

    Oh...using the 2 button reset will only reset the shooting menu. There are other settings that won't be reverted to factory defaults. If you are still experiencing problems with a setting, I hope you will be able to find it. And if that is the case, feel free to give us a little more info on what settings you have engaged. Hopefully someone will be able to narrow down the setting that needs to be changed.
