Nikon, please tell me **why** I can't use that feature [D850]

It happened with the electronic VR, and then with timelapse - a greyed out function and the message that "this option is not available at current settings, or in the camera's current state".

This error message provides me with zero insight as to what I'm doing wrong, or how to fix the problem. I end up scrolling through menus indefinitely and toggling every possible thing I can to try and figure out what the camera doesn't like about what I'm doing. Google is sometimes helpful. It's infuriating, and embarrassing (I was trying to show a friend the 4k timelapse function).

I know it may be a tall order, but having some insight as to why something isn't working would be incredibly helpful.

Oh and the timelapse wouldn't work because I had been bracketing beforehand and it was still enabled. Not sure why the electronic VR wouldn't enable. It works now.

Nikon, please help!
