Question about Nikon D2H Set Digital Camera

LCD screen 'flicker'

I recently traded in a pile of Pentax 645 gear for a D2H. Bit of a wrench, but really happy with the print quality and camera ergonomics, etc. However, have any other users any views on the D2H's rear LCD screen? On my version there seems to be an undue amount of 'flicker'; particularly if you preview pics involving lots of horizontal lines. When flicking through pics on the screen, for example, the white image number seems to be constantly flickering. Any thoughts anyone?

Re: LCD screen 'flicker'

Try setting the video output option to NTSC (if it's on PAL). I know this sounds funny, but I have heard some rumblings about this option somehow creating a LCD flicker. If it doesn't work, I apologize in advance for wasting your time! My camera is on NTSC and I haven't seen any flicker on the file numbers on the LCD.

Usually such screen flickering occurs when you had applied some pressure on the LCD ( can be due to high shocks on the camera such as dropping it from a height, hitting on the LCD ...etc ) and will eventually damage the screen.But it wont affect the pictures you are taking since the image capture is by the inbuilt image sensor.You can claim for the warranty if it's a manufacturing defect and they will service it free of cost.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.

Screen appears just white on my pentax optio a20 camera


You need a new LCD display.
I can replace the screen for $40, or you can buy the parts on eBay for about $25 and do it yourself if you are very handy, and very skilled with small delicate parts. You could send it to Pentax in Arizona, but they charge about $90 for an LCD replacement. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

The Sony P72 should produce excellent photos. You stated that you had just purchased the camera which may be a clue to the problem. With a film camera, you push the shutter button and bang you have a picture. With a digital camera you push the shutter button and about 1.5 seconds later the focus locks and then 0.2 seconds still later the picture is captured. Since you are not accustomed to that shutter delay, you are probably moving the camera. Most digital cameras will let you push the shutter button down half-way to achieve focus lock. Then press the button the rest of the way down to take the photo (remembering there is a 0.2 second delay). When you plan to snap that picture, be prepared to be perfectly still for 3 to 4 seconds. Try taking some pictures with your camera sitting on something solid (or a tripod) and see if the photo quality doesn't improve. There is a good 9 page review of the P72 camera at: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_reviews/p72.html One of the pages contains sample photos. Select one of the photos and click on it. When the photo finishes loading (large file), then RIGHT click on the photo and click "Save photo as". Save it to your hard drive. Print that photo on your printer. That will give you the chance to see how a known good photo, will print on your printer.

Seriously confused...


I was very confused too. I finally sold my S2 Pro in favor of a D2H just recently. It is indeed a fantastic camera. I worried that decision for many weeks over concern about going to 4 MP from the excellent output from the S2 Pro. In my shooting, I haven't been hampered by the lower pixel count at all. In fact, my images have improved markedly because the camera is SO accurate. It let's me get shots I never would have been able to get with the S2 Pro. I might have waited for the S3 if Fuji had indictated any substantial improvement in the body, AF and metering, but it looks like their focus is on the sensor, and the camera is going to remain a tool of the studio and wedding photographer rather than the outdoor shooter. The general concept of going to the D2H from the S2 Pro is by no means a no-brainer. A lot depends on what kind of photography you are going to do. But I can tell you that the output from the 4mp D2H is really excellent, and for me, the AF accuracy and speed is astonishing having used an S2 Pro for many thousands of images. The camera handling difference is absolutely night and day, and for me, I have found it vastly preferable to nail a 4 mp image rather than to miss several 6 mp images.
