Nikon D70 Help

I'm just starting to get into photography and I have a Nikon D70. The other day I was out taking pictures at a golf course that was in really good condition. When I got home and looked at the pictures I noticed the grass wasn't as stellar green as it was when I was on the course. Sure easy PS fix but I like taking natural pictures with out modifying them. I was taking the pictures in manual mode. Light meter balanced, ISO of 200 and a shutter speed of 100. I like taking pictures in manual mode but I noticed in the manual the "nature" program mode on the camera will enhance the outdoor colors. Should I shoot in a mode like this or what can I do to make the color turn out better in my pictures shooting manually. Thanks.

Re: Nikon D70 Help

I don't think there is really any such thing as a 100% "natural picture". What your eyes see and what film or a sensor "see" are not the same. All photos are manipulated to some degree whether it be from the type of film or the digital "modes" you use. If you would have shot with a film such as Velvia, the greens may have been more "stellar" or maybe too green. There are a number of settings you can use to get the results more to your liking with a D70, or shoot NEF and post process to your liking. Your exposure will make a difference so you may want to bracket.

How to use and do photography on canon power shoot sx 60sh?


This is a very open-ended question. Start by reading your owners manual to get familiar with your camera's features. Then go take pictures. Take a photography class as there are probably local clubs or professionals or colleges or adult education or other sources in your area that can help. There are also online courses available. One option is New York Institute of Photography. They will allow you to do this from home, send you all the course material and photography assignments and you submit those for critique. Good or bad, it is what you make from it..nothing more. Good luck. Photography can quickly become a passion.

The screen can be used to review pics after you take them. The D70 does not have a Live View capability.

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70


Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.page click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

Greetings,
It is actually an error message generated by your compact flash and means that the card is no longer readable. A lot of D70 owners have reported this error without being able to find another solution other than reinserting the card or changing the card to a different brand. In my D70s I use Sandisk Extreme III memory and, knock on wood, have not yet had this error. You could also try cleaning out the memory card slot and check to see that all pins are aligned and not bent.
Good Luck,

Nikon D70 not showing shots in order as when i take them.


Greetings...

There are a couple of things to look at here...

Your camera settings and your computer file settings...

For the Nikon D70 make sure the file number sequence is set to on...

SET UP MENU (wrench icon)
File Number Sequence: This lets the camera number your images starting at the last shot you made, even if you've formatted your card. I leave this to ON. If you turn this feature off you'll start from 0001.JPG each time...
Are you working on a Mac or PC?
If you are on a PC make sure that the program you are working on is set to sort by name...
If your Nikon was not set to sequence, you will need to rename the files. Nikon has a free program, ViewNX, that will allow you to view, sort and rename image files...
Additionally, on a PC, open Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View, and UN check the 'Hide extension' box...
This allows you to see the naming extension's on you files...
Have a great day....

I'm the same of you, only I went for the D40.
One general photography book that seems to be recommended by a lot of people is Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson (ISBN13: 978-0817463007 or ISBN10: 0817463003)
I've just bought a copy, so will comment with my own opinions later if you want :)

Can't really comment on D70-specific books I'm afraid.

Nikon D70 flash doenot fire


According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
