Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

The built-in flash on my nikon d70s does not always fire. sometimes this goes on for quite a few frames before it functions again. and often when it does decide to "wake up" it fires way too hot -- even in TTL. I'm not using the continuous shooting mode, so what could be the problem? shutter count near 15k clicks

Forced flash will not work in auto. If you are not using 'P' mode you should. In 'P' mode it will flash everytime.

That said, the many flashes does not sound right. I would call Nikon's tech help line at 1-800-nikonux.

Flash fires irregularly... good exposures, then suddenly 3 way under exposed/black then a good exposure, the a completely burnt out over-exposed shot! Completely irregular.


If you are referring to the internal flash I would say you are firing the camera faster then the flash can cycle. There is a green lightning bolt that will come on in the viewfinder when the flash has charged. If you fire the first one it may be a charged flash then again you may have popped the flash composed and tripped the shutter before the flash has had a chance to fully charge. You fire again depleting the charge some more and before it has a chance to recover you fire it again so the flash never has a chance to fully charge. You need to wait till the flash ready light come on in the viewfinder.

Flashing green death


My Nikon D70 quit working and would only flash a green light. I contacted Nikon and they fixed it, no charge. I was very happy with Nikon for the free repair! If you have this problem, go to the Nikon website and do a search for flashing green light. They cover this problem as a defect and did not ask for any proof of purchase or anything. Very smooth and easy. Thank you Nikon!!!

Are you using a lens hood? That could create the shadow.

The built in speedlight on my D 70S is not synching. Seems like the flash goes off before the shutter opens.My pictues all comes out dark no matter what I try. Can you help me?


I fixed this same problem with my D70s today, after twelve months of getting dark pictures despite the flash firing. It started syncing properly after I performed the following, though I'm not sure why as I was just mucking around.
- Set Program to P. - Push button to activate built-in flash. - Push, and keep depressed same button, which will put you in Flash Exposure Compensation mode. - My Flash Exposure Compensation was on +0.3 so I set it to 0.0 by turning the front wheel. Seemed to fix it.

Built in speedlight on nikon d70 has stopped working. The light pops up, but no flash


If flash pops up and doesn't fire, little white pin/lever inside flash has lodged up inside flash casing and needs to be eased from where it is stuck. Careful when opening the flash up to dislodge the white plastic pin/lever, there are tiny wires you REALLY don't want to damage....

See how, with pics here:

How to shoot night scene with people dancing?


You could use flash. Depending on distance, you might want to go with one of Nikon's add on flash units. SB-600 is very cost effective.

You could also buy the excellent f1.8 50mm lens that Nikon makes. It's about $120 new. It's a prime lens (no zoom/telephoto) but it is one of the best lenses Nikon makes. It works very well in low light. There are also some other large aperature lenses, but cost goes up as f goes down!

D70s pic over or under exposed problHems with flash


photoschool,
Try cleaning the contacts on the flash carefully with a pencil eraser, make sure there are no crumbs left then reconnect. Sometime the contacts get dirty or have some corrosion so they aren't making good contact to the hotshoe (look at that too) then try it again. The flash should be acting right after that.

Nikon D40X inbuilt flash


If it's withing 30 days, get it exchanged. I have a D70s and it's been working fine for me, maybe something with the D40x with other customers? Take it back to the store and let an "instructor" try it out to make sure it's not a setting.

It's great for the manufacturer to know about any problems so they can get a good sample of problems to help many people. Good luck.
