Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

2 Answers

Disk not formatted!

I am a photographer and I have been shooting with a Nikon D70 for the past few years. Today I was shooting some photos for a musician. I did the first half of the photos on a compact flash card... during a clothing change I downloaded the photos to my computer. The files uploaded and I then formatted the card in my camera. I shot the next half of the shoot on the same card. The last 2 shots said that there was no image file and that I needed to change the card. I took the card out and attempted to download them to the computer.. when I inserted the compact flash it told me that the disk in drive H has not been formatted and that I must format it to use it. I can not view the photos on the computer but I can still see them when I put the card back in the camera. When I put that card in the camera and take a photo with it, it tells me that I can not use that card. I just need a way to get those photos off of that card. Help!!

HI sHOOTITd70!

I have the same theory with solution 1. I have experienced this problem with my DSCw35 digicam. The computer does not acknowledge the card when it is placed to a memory reader. Try to chehk your cables between the reader and your computer. If it is built in to your computer you need to clean the metal receptors using eraser. or your USB cable must be replaced with another new and functional one. You may do the direct copying of your photo from the camera directly to your computer.

Disk formatting is the last recourse if you have tried all but not advisable if you can still make other way to solve it.

always,

Hi!,

the file system on the card is corrupt.
it means that it has not been formatted properly or has reached the end of its life. don't worry. if u have a data cable of ur camera then connect it to pc using the cable and then try to copy the photos.
it should work. secondly if that dosn't work then reply me. ill tell u another way. just don't try to click more pictures on the same card.

Is there a way to delete all the pictures instead of one at a time on a nikon d70 camera


Yes there is, format the memory card as follows.

Format the memory card Memory cards must be for mat ted be fore ? rst use. Formatting Memory Cards Formatting memory cards permanently deletes any data they may contain. Be sure to copy any photographs and other data you wish to keep to a computer before proceeding ( 171-174). To format the card, turn the camera on and hold the format buttons (Shooting mode and LCD illumination) buttons down simultaneously for approximately two seconds. A blinking will appear in the shut ter-speed display and the frame count will blink. Pressing both buttons to gether a second time will format the memory card. Press any other button to exit without formatting
Shown on page 21 of the manual. The manual can be downloaded here http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/dslr/D70_en.pdf

It is a great idea to format the card rather than deleting photos
Hope this helps

I bought a Nikon D70 on ebay for a good price. It has a 28-80 lens. I can read the menu on the monitor, but it is black when I want to take a photograph. I can use the viewfinder, and take a picture, but I...


No, you shouldn't. The D70 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, allowing you to compose your photos through the viewfinder. The ability to use a dSLR as a point-n-shoot camera, wobbling at the end of your arms, is a relatively recent development. Nikon introduced it into their lineup with the D3 and D300, released years after the D70.

D70 photos not sharp - no matter which lens I use.


D70 produces lovely crisp images as long as the lens is pretty good.  This sounds like a camera body that needs a service.,,

I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera...


shoot,
Is this a small capacity SD card? Like a 512mb or 1GB card?, you have to be careful not to shoot til the card is full, there's a risk of loosing data or corrupting what's on it. There are recovery utilities that can be loaded on your PC or Mac and run with a card reader to get the images back that are on the card. you didn't say what type of software you are using with the camera, is it Picture Project or Nikon's Preview software? Not just the Windows generic camera download. Also are you shooting in RAW? Let me know if I can help, I'll get you a name of a disk recovery site.

What is NEF files?


A file in NEF format (Nikon Electronic format) is data flow from the photosensitive matrix of your camera written without any processing.

NEF contains more information than JPEG or TIFF and is often called digital negative. That's why professional photographers usually prefer NEF to other formats. Besides, many owners of photo cameras store their photo collections in NEF format. This ensures maximal quality of stored photos and lowest possible losses.

The higher the ISO setting the more grain in the photo. Have you somehow set the ISO to say, 1600? http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b11&num=12 Select ISO setting this way: http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b05&num=10 Are you shooting in low-light situations (typically indoor)? Try shooting bright scenes and Auto mode, or manually set ISO to 100 or 200 and see if noise persists.
