  1. Thanks for the replies guys ;-) I had already given the contacts on the lense and camera a wipe over with a lense cloth but it didn't make a difference. After contacting their warranty dept. their man suggested that I try cleaning the contacts with a plastic rubber. I was pretty sceptical, but lo and behold it seems to have done the job! I then changed back and forth between lenses a couple of times and everything still seems to be working ok. Now I just got to get back in the water ! Cheers, John
  2. Hi all ;-) Just wondering if anyone else has had or heard of this problem occuring. On fitting my tokina 10-17 the other week i went to take the usual test shots the night before the dive and on releasing the shutter the camera went into like a burst mode with the shutter trying to release, no image taken and err coming up on the display. I removed the lense, contacts looked good, so i tried again. Same result.Removed cards and battery to see if some sort of reset would occur, then tried again same story. Seeing that it was the weekend i couldn't contact the supplier till Monday. After talking to a friend he suggested removing the lense, facing the camera towards me and seeing if the mirror was raising and lowering properly. All seemed good. I fitted my Nikon 18-200 and tried some shots and presto everything worked fine. Fired off about 200 shots and thought problem solved. Wrong. Refitted the 10-17 the night before this weeks dive and as soon as i tried to shoot same prob. as before. I then started thinking that maybe an issue with the Tokina not being on speaking terms with the D7000 anymore so i tried putting the 18-200 on again but was still getting the same shutter issue and err coming up on the display. Starting to get very frustrated as the set up is only a few months old and has been working fine with all settings. I also tried removing all user settings and setting up from scratch, no Joy, then this morning,Sunday, I tried the camera again with the Nikon lense and everything is working fine again, so I suspect the 10-17 but am not game to put it on again in case it screws the camera up. Any useful help would be much appreciated, Cheers, John
  3. Hi guys/gals a quick hello to introduce myself. I have been visiting this site for a while and found it quite interesting. I live just Sth of Byron Bay and mostly dive my local site Julian Rocks with Giac and the crew from Sundive. I have only been shooting a couple of years and have recently upgraded from a G9/ Ikelite set up to a Nikon D7000, Tok. 10-17 with 8" dome and a Nikon 60 Macro. Am enjoying having a lot more stuff to fiddle with but at the same time finding it a bit more challenging !!! I have a couple of issues with the 10-17 and D7000 that I will post later in a different part of the forum as I need to do this post first before I can post ! Happy shooting, Cheers, John
