    I have the same problem. I've tried taking out the battery for more than 24hrs but this doesn't change anything and the camera is still stuck in auto mode regardless of the mode it is placed in. Any suggestions?

I have a Nikon D70 (with a 18-55mm lens) and have always used it in Auto mode. It suddenly stopped working in auto mode...won't take the picture at all. Did I break the lens??? If I tip the camera back...


Hi tina549, do any of your other lens auto focus? If so then it may be this lens. If they do not then look on the right side of the lens mount (with camera facing you) there is the AF and M switch. Something to try is clean the electrical contacts on both the D70 and the lens. When I had a D70s the auto focus was giving me fits, worked sometimes then it did not so I traded it for the D80. The 18-55 lens is a nice lens however, it is not the most robust of lens.

Sb600 flash has no communication with d70 camera


Have you tried using the wireless mode? Even if there is a problem with the hot shoe interface, it might still work using the wireless mode. To do this you have to set both the camera and the flash. On the D70, under the menu with the icon that looks like a pencil, select Flash Mode|Commander Mode|TTL|OK. On the flash, hold down the Zoom and [-] buttons to get the CSM menu. When you see the zigzag arrow, push the Mode button to turn on the wireless mode.You may have to use the [+] or [-] buttons to cycle through the menu to find the zigzag arrow.

Now you should be able to use the flash detached from the camera. Just pop up the D70 flash, which will tell the SB-600 what to do via light pulses. There are other settings that may be required (channel and group settings must match between camera and flash) and be careful not to block the light sensor on the side of the SB-600. If the wireless system is still working, you may find you like it better than hot shoe operation.

I can get my 50mm lens to work with my d70 nikon.


If the lens has an aperture ring, make sure it is set on the largest f number. Make sure the lens is mounted fully on camera. Oherwise an AF 50mmm f1.8 lens should work on a D70 with no problem

Nikon D70 data imprint


Sorry for the long answer, but this is complicated.

Some photo editors will allow you to set them up to display the date on the photo.

HOWEVER on all digital cameras:

The date taken is part of the image data that is stored in the file, but not as part of the image. If you print directly from the D70, you can set the date and data to print in one of the menus, but this only applies if you print from the camera. There is no way to actually put the date on the image like there used to be in some film cameras. Since the "picture" is now just a set of computer data bits stored on a card, disk, or other medium, the actual picture is defined by the jpeg standard, which is part of the ANSI/ISO/IEC organization. A camera manufacturer could add an extra bit of hardware to generate some kind of laser mark on the digital sensor in the camera, but I'm not aware of any camera that has this. For sure, the D70 does not.

In the various softwares that you can buy to read the file, the information in the file (like the date) can be interpreted and printed any way the software is programmed, including putting it somewhere on the printed output.

Cant take any pictures ... code reads off r33 what does that mean


check to see if auto lever on rear is on dot. I accidentally moved mine and camera would not focus or fire when I was in automatic mode. I went to manual and everything was okay. Switched back to full auto and had same old problem.

Flash


If you shoot in Auto mode, the camera will not allow you to turn off the flash when it senses that it is needed.

To use the camer without the flash, change the mode to Program ("P"). Once it's in P mode, the flash will not fire as long as it's in the down position. When you want to use the flash, press the speedlight release button (the one with the little lightning bolt near the mode select dial).
