Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Soft or blurry photographs

I have a Nikon D70 with a 18-70 mm lens and a SB 60 flash. I mostly use P mode and have been getting photographs with either soft or blurry images. I reset to factory settings but this did not solve the problem. What could it be. I used to get crisp photos almost every time.

    tannero,

    Did you shoot in automatic prior to using program mode? If you are experimenting with depth of field?, trying different f-stops you will decrease your background focus and will have the focus sharper on your subject. Let me know what other factors are at work, maybe there's a simple approach to get the sharpness back.

    tannero,

    Is it a different flash unit or the original? How about when you use the built-in? Have you checked the AF on the lens and camera body? The blurry image in program mode may be the auto focus setting - Is your lens a VR one?

I would try using a different lens. Check to see if there are any fingerprints on the lens, it could be dirty. The AF works thru the lens itself so if its dirty, that would cause out of focus images.

Was the camera dropped at any time, if so your autofocusing drive could be damaged. Send an email to Nikon and see if they can repair it for you.

What setting should the camera be on for an


That depends on the flash. If it's CLS-compatible (Nikon SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, and SB-900) you can use it in any exposure mode (except flash off, of course). The easiest flash mode is Auto-TTL, though some of the other modes will give you better control under certain situations.

If it's not CLS-compatible, then you'll have to take it off Auto-TTL. If the flash has a sensor, you can let the flash control itself (assuming it's at the same distance from the subject as the camera). Otherwise you'll have to go manual.

Please help! I have a nikon d80 with a 18-135 mm


Ask the players to run slower.

Seriously, there are limits. There's only so much light in the gym, you ISO only goes so high, and your lens is only so fast. A faster lens can get you a stop or two. You can try adding more light. Beyond that....

SB-800 -3EV message after about 50 shots or so


IN THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL USING THE FLASH IN SHOOTING FAST CAUSES IT TO HEAT UP .

TRY USING THE FLASH IN MANUAL AND CUT THE RATIO POWER AND USE AS A FILL AND NOT A MAIN .
YOU COULD ALSO USE TWO NIKON SB800 FLASHES IN ITTL AND WITH TWO THE FLASH IS USING HAVE THE OUTPUT AND RECYCLE TIME IS INCREASED .
