Nikon D500 issue in a new application

Fri Feb 22, 2019 8:46 am

I was doing some astrophotography this past evening on a Meade 4.5" 'scope, sorting out new lenses and filters ( telescope adapter lenses, NOT Nikkors ). In attempting to shoot an almost full moon for the first time with this setup, discovered an issue with shutter speed - trying to shoot a little faster to stop the moon's motion at high magnification - and the WR-R10 Wireless Remote. Specifically, in Manual mode, with the Wireless Remote enabled, Shutter Speed is limited to 1/250 or slower, no faster. As soon as the remote receiver is removed from the 10 pin connector, shutter functionality returns to normal. Has anyone else had this experience in this or other applications? And better yet, a solution.

I recommend taking it to the camera shop and tell the people the problem that's what I would do if I were you

Sounds like the camera thinks you've attached an external flash and is limiting the shutter to the flash synch speed (which is 1/250s on a D500). But, if you are in manual you should be able to override it.

When you say "manual" do you mean manual focus or manual settings (shutter speed and aperture)?
