Re: scratch appears in photo's

I think it's near the sensor behind the mirror, though not laying on the sensor. If it were on the lens, it wouldn't be visible because of the distance from the lens to the sensor. You probably can't see it, because the mirror is in the down position. You need to lock up the mirror and check the sensor area.

The nice curvy pattern looks like a hair but I supposed it could be something else. Are you sure you've cleaned both the front and back of the lens?

Fuzzy pictures


Don't know which camera you have. Take a picture of ANYTHING, brace against a wall, table, fence, etc., so that you eliminate any possibility of camera shake and look at your results. If the photo is clear and clean, your problem is that you have not been holding your camera steady.
If it is fuzzy, your autofocus is not working which means a professional repair or replacement of the camera.

How do i change a Nikon D70 to black and white


The Nikon D70 does not have a black-and-white mode setting.

However, you can take your photo in color and then use software to convert it to a grayscale photo. (Black and white implies an image with only those two values per pixel; grayscale can have 8 to 16 bits per pixel.) Most photo editing packages have a "desaturate" feature that does an automated conversion to grayscale.

The open source image editor Gimp has a "channel mixer" dialog that would allow you to approximate the effect of various filters before performing the desaturate function. This would allow you to experiment with the procedures if you do not have a commercial photo editor like Adobe PhotoShop. There is a special wrapper of Gimp that puts its interface into a configuration like that of PhotoShop; look for "GimpShop". The open source image manipulation package ImageMagick may also be used if you prefer working with command line utilities.

D70 doesn't appear on Mac desktop


This is easily solved.
Most probably the camera's USB connection mode is set to PTP. This is useful for certain situations such as controlling the camera from the computer (you even take photos from OS X's built in Image Transfer).
Change this to "Mass Storage" in the camera settings menu and your camera will behave just like a card reader. Next time you connect it to the computer, plug it it, then turn it on and it will appear on the desktop and in the sidebar as an attached drive.
Don't forget to eject it before disconnecting just as you would an ordinary external drive.

The higher the ISO setting the more grain in the photo. Have you somehow set the ISO to say, 1600? http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b11&num=12 Select ISO setting this way: http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b05&num=10 Are you shooting in low-light situations (typically indoor)? Try shooting bright scenes and Auto mode, or manually set ISO to 100 or 200 and see if noise persists.

These lines are normal. See the last paragraph on page 8 of the D70 manual.

Black marks on pictures


It appears that you have dust on your sensor that is recording in the same place on each image. It is a common problem with digital cameras. If you are adept at cleaning the sensor yourself, it is a relatively easy chore. However, if you have any doubts about it, take it to a reputable camera dealer and let them do it.

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.
