Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to download pictures to my computer

I downloaded nikon view 5.1.4 from nikon site. The first time I was able to transfer pictures to the computer. I have a HP pavilion a305w with Windows XP home edition. When I tried to transfer pictures the next time, they would not transfer. When I called up the nikon view 5, and clicked on transfer, I got a message that there was no CF card in the attached camera. I have tried to transfer the pictures several times, but have had no success. I'm I doing something wrong, or do I need to unstall the Nikon View and reinstall. Thanks for your help.

    The Nikon Transfer Program does not start automatically. When I do get it up and running Manually it gives me the option to start transfer, but when I click on the button, nothing happens!!

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

SOURCE: Can I transfer photos back to the card after editing the images?

Connect the cam to a pc and turn it on. Discard the box that pops up. Open windows explorer. You'll see Removable Disk listed in the folders pane. Drop all image files you want to transfer to a folder named Nikon under the Removable Disk folder. But the files must be named DSCNxxxx for the camera to understand them.

SOURCE: Use LCD instead of view finder in Nikon D40

Can't be done. Digital SLR cameras only view through the eyepiece, unless they have a "live view" function, which the D40 does not. The LCD is therefore for viewing an image after it is shot, and setting your menu options.

SOURCE: NIKON D2H ERR FAULT

I had a D2H with a similar error. The camera started giving an 'ERR' message almost from new but from reading various posts from other users I assumed it was a 'known' idiosyncrasy of the D2H, the camera would create an underexposed first shot after turning on. A colleague has the same problem on his D2H, and there are numerous references to the same problem on the web. Your post points to a similar shutter issue. My shutter failed completely at around 65,000 actuations, well short of the advertised '150,000'. In addition, the horizontal Main Command Dial had also failed a short time before, and it had cost me £135GBP to have that repaired.

The problem is down to the shutter and unfortunately replacing the shutter costs £349GBP in the UK, quoted to me by the Nikon UK Service Department, in Kingston, in March 09.

As for Nikon repairing it under a 'goodwill' policy, you may have better luck than me if you live somewhere other than the UK. I told them to keep mine, as attempting to charge me for the repair was the last straw, it wasn’t worth me spending another £350 on a camera that hadn’t been reliable in the first place. I had been planning on getting a D3 in October/November but will now probably sell my Nikon gear and go over to Canon, as Nikon don’t seem too bothered about their professional user base, and I certainly won’t be paying £5,000 for a D3X.

Try downloading from the memory card. You will have to purchase a card reader, usually less than $20. It will save the batteries, too, since the reader is powered by the computer.
Make sure the batteries have a good charge. The camera powers the download not the pc.

I have a nikon D70 but have no softwear


You don't really need any software to use your camera. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Between them, Nikon Transfer and Nikon View NX will perform thoses functions. You can download them from the manufacturer's web site at http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

Can't get videos off the camera


Hello,

here is a easier way to view/transfer your videos/pictures.....

if your running Windows Xp or Vista great.

select your menu button on the back of the camera , then Shooting menu, then Set up, scroll down to Interface, then USB, select mass storage. press menu to exit.

turn your camera on after you connect the USB cable to your computer and camera.

a new hardware wizard should be active, Xp & vista provides the drivers and a one time deal. your camera turns into a removable hard drive or like a jump drive.

you can drag & drop the video files easily into a folder .....

make sure you have the latest Quick Time Player to view the videos.

and here is the manual on the Coolpix L10

Hey charliedee,
The program that came with this camera to allow uploading of images to your computer is called Nikon View. Nikon does not provide a free version of this on their website, but you could probably find a free download of Nikon View by searching for it on the web. If all you want to do is transfer your images to your computer and you don't need all the other utilities that come with Nikon View I have provided a link to a download of Nikon Transfer that is free through Nikon, which should allow you to transfer your images to your computer. I hope this helps!

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista

You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:


  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.
