Question about Nikon D50 Digital SLR Digital Camera with 28-90mm F/3.3-5.6 Lens
All of a sudden (after taking a few pictures fine), my D50 takes only dark pictures. Even when the flash is not needed, the pictures are dark. I changed the memory cards b/c I heard memory cards can go bad, but that did not work. Never had any problems with this camera until a couple days ago.
Check your pics on the computer. Are they still dark? If they're OK then problems in camera's display.

Silvanus is correct - I have a D200 and often by accident adjust the exposure bias dial when taking the camera out of my backpack resulting in dark shots. I bet this is your problem.

When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.

SOURCE: Nikon 4300 CF Card Erro
The Nikon Coolpix 4300 only supports the FAT16 filesystem, so it can only support a 2GB partition. To support 4GB you need a FAT32 filesystem.
Put the card in a CF writer and attached to a PC or Mac. Partition 2x2GB partitions, then format them as FAT16. Now put it into the Coolpix 4300 and it should work.

There is a buffer in your camera that processes your images for storage on your memory card. The larger the file size, the more the buffer is being used per image. That will slow down your image transfer.
Also, memory cards are not just about the size of the memory card. It's very about about transfer rate. Once the buffer is ready to send the image to the card, the card has to be able to accept the MB quickly. If your card has a transfer rate of less than 255, it's going to be slow, especially with larger images.
