    Re: Shutter speed changing in manual mode

    I just got my new D90 less than a week ago and had this issue myself.

    Like most people I assume, I was anxious to go out and take photos with my new camera and didn't RTFM first. I accidentally pressed the [BKT] button while holding the camera and couldn't for the life of me figure out why I was having issues. After an hour of headaches and reading the manual, I finally figured it out LOL!

    Gotta be careful how you hold these things!

    Re: Shutter speed changing in manual mode

    My D90 did the same thing to me. Prior to finding this thread I gave up and pressed the two green buttons to return to factory defaults. I only have a couple of settings to change to get the camera back the way I like it from this. Doing this fixed the problem, so I don't know how I'd caused it and it may have been accidentally setting bracketing... I'll never know - until next time!

    Re: Shutter speed changing in Manual mode

    My Nikon D3, now with over 22,000 shots taken suddenly started automatically changing shutter speed after every shot, though using different lenses. I mean jumping to 1/5,000th or 1/60th second, well outside normal bracketing of exposures for intentionally set/reset 1/320th and f/11. You would think I know my own camera, by now. I DID NOT PLAY WITH BRACKETING -and- IT DID NOT NEED TO BE RESET. So, eliminate that response. As soon as I returned home, I installed a freshly recalibrated and recharged battery. I cleaned the contacts, in the camera and lenses. I reformatted the CF Card. I Reset the shooting menu. I Reset custom settings. I upgraded Firmware from 2.02 to 2.03. Nothing seemed to remedy the situation. Finally, after many tries and no joy, I depressed the ISO and W/B buttons, simultaneously, for 2 seconds. I did that a couple times. I have gone out to take 19 photos and now everything seems to be normal(?). Is the Nikon D3 ever really normal??? Question I have is WHY ON EARTH would the D3 develop a mind of its own and set Shutter Speed randomly, after every shot? Oh well. I bought and paid $5,000 for the camera, when new, back in 2008, putting my Nikon F4S on the shelf. Damned sorry I spent the money for this iteration of Nikon professional digital camera. I should have kept my money in my pocket. If I didn't own about $75,000 worth of Nikon pro lenses and accessories, I would pitch the D3 over the fence! The Nikon F4S/E was the best camera Nikon EVER produced. A real Photographer's camera. My guess, Nikon may finally get it right when the D6 is introduced to the market. Maybe.

    Same thing happened to me earlier this week. Now I'll tell you what really happened to me. I did a flash session last sunday and when I use flash indoor, I change my meter to "spot" because this setting makes the camera forget about available light and won't increase my iso to try to balance the flash with the available light. So, the next time I went out to use the camera, I had forgotten about the spot meter setting... Depending on where my reading was made, I was getting quite varying results. If the measured area was black, my shots were overexposed, if metering on white, underexposed.

    I think this is probably what happened to you too. As I was taking my shots, I had to check if bracketing wasn't turned on and it took me a few shots to realize what had happened.

    Hope this helps.
    I'm beginning to see the LIGHT!

    Also happend to me,,,,so stupid of me, but I realised after an hour that accidently bracketing had ben turned on. But when your on a wedding, panic strikes and you dont think of the obvious.

    Re: Shutter speed changing in manual mode

    Had the same problem, jumping shutter speeds. The suggestions here helped me find the problem.

    On the 610 there is an annoying bracket button right below the flash button on the front left of the lens. You push it and rotote the shutter speed wheel to turn on.
    Once turned on, it starts changing shutter speeds even in manul mode.
    Very annoying and no where to override it in the menu system.
    The only warning is a little BKT visible in the view finder right below the word ISO.
